When working with several strands from same ball, work from inside and outside of same ball. When using 3 strands, cut in addition an appropriate length of yarn. Estimate approx. 3-4 metres/ 3½-4½ yds per stripes. Work yarn ends in along the way, to have fewer strands to fasten when finished.
DOUBLE SEED ST:
Work entire pot holder in double seed st as follows:
Row 1: * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-* and finish with K 2.
Row 2: K over K and P over P.
Row 3: * P 2, K 2 *, repeat from *-* and finish with P 2.
Row 4: K over K and P over P.
Repeat these 4 rows in each stripe.
