Notes

Hm. Those bobbles take FOREVER to make. But I have absolutely no idea what to make for the swaps I am participating in…
Hah! Hurray and Thanks to Ravelry! After looking at the “helpful notes” in the FOs, I saw that learning to knit backwards would be helpfull to speed up the bobbles - so I found this video on how-to-knit-backwards-when-you-hold-the-yarn-in-your left-hand which is easy to understand for me and now I learned a new skill - knitting backwards! Extremly usefull if you turn in the middle of a row over a small number of stitches, as for Entrelac, Bobbles - and I might consider it for sockheels as well…

Knitting was done after 2 days, it only took me a little before I could felt it. Did not shrink too much, was 29x32 cm before felting, still have to measure after felting. Quite like it!

I doubled the yarn as the pattern was written for thicker yarn.

ETA: This is a trivet/ something to put below your hot pots on the table to protect it from heat - a Topfuntersetzer, I mean!
