See diagram A.1 (= 42 sts). The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS. Work entire pattern in stockinette st.

Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 84 sts on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with vanilla. K 1 round. Insert 2 markers in the piece; one in the 1st st and one in the 43rd st (= in each side). Then work according to diagram A.1 2 times in width in total. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, bind off with vanilla.

Work edge on hook size 4 mm / G/6 with vanilla. 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 14 ch for strap. Fasten the strap with 1 sl st in sc in the corner at beg of round.
ROUND 2: Work * 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.

Knit another pot holder.
