PATTERN:
See diagrams M.1A and M.1B.

FRENCH KNOT:
Bring the threaded needle from WS to RS in the st where the knot should be. Place the needle tip against piece and twine the loop tightly 2 times around the needle tip. Pull the needle through these loops so that there is a double knot on the thread. Insert the needle as close as possible to the st where the thread first came through (not in the exact same place, or it will pull back through) and fasten on the back - see Fig.1.
--------------------------------------------------------

POT HOLDER:
Worked in the round on circular needle. Cast on 74 sts on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with off white. Insert 1 marker in the 1st st at beg of round and 1 marker in the 38th st (= side edges).
Continue to work as follows on the round: * 1 time diagram M.1A, 3 times diagram M.1B *, repeat from *-* a total of 2 times.
Continue until diagram M.1A and M.1B have been worked 1 time vertically.
Bind off with off white.
Embroider French knots with black where there is a star in the diagram.
Fold the pot holder so that the sts with markers are in the sides.

CROCHET BORDER:
Work the entire border with off white on hook size 4 mm / G/6. Work from RS through both layers. Start at the top in the left corner and crochet around the edge of the pot holder as follows:
ROUND 1: Crochet 1 sc in the corner, then crochet 1 sc in every st around the entire edge and finish with ch 14 for strap. Fasten the strap with 1 sl st in sc in the corner at beg of round.
ROUND 2: * ch 3, 1 sc in the first of the 3 ch (= 1 picot), skip 2 sc, 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* and finish with 14 sc around the strap and 1 sl st in sl st from previous round.
Fasten off.
