Pot Holder / Hot Pad
Lion Brand® Lion® Cotton
11 sts = 3"; 6 rows = 1". BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
Potholder is worked with 3 strands of yarn held together throughout. To use one ball, re-roll yarn into three separate balls. (If you hare making more than one potholder, you may find it easier to get three balls of Lion Cotton to eliminate the need to re-roll.)
KNITTED POTHOLDER: With three strands of yarn held together, cast on 28 sts. Work in garter st (= k every row) until 8" from beg. Bind off until one stitch remains. Knit that st, remove needle, insert crochet hook (ch 10, sl st to base st of ch) for loop. Fasten off.
