Happy Handmade Holidays!

If it weren’t for the itchy eyes, scratchy throat, and sinus headache, this would be my favorite time of the year 🙂 Allergies aside, what can beat the exuberance of newborn blossoms when the air warms a little bit and the sun lingers just long enough?
We’d like to celebrate our current state of BLOOM with a FREE knitting pattern from our terrific book KNITTING DOUBLE. This six-sided potholder with romantic blossoms is a great “small” project to try mastering this technique, resulting in a “Happy Spring!” or Mother’s Day gift, or maybe just an airy floral addition to your own kitchen.
When you work double knitting, two layers of fabric are worked at the same time, each with a different color. The two layers are attached, and the resulting fabric has two right sides and no visible wrong side. How cool is that? The projects in KNITTING DOUBLE can be turned over or inside out (if knitted in the round), and there are two “good” sides (you can never have too many “good” sides!).
As you knit, both sets of stitches are on the same needle. You always knit one stitch for the front layer then purl the following stitch for the back layer. Complete directions are available in this FREE PATTERN DOWNLOAD.

Happy spring, everyone!
