Worked in the round on circular needle. Cast on 76 sts on circular needle size 4 mm with dark wash. P 1 round, K 1 round and P 1 round. Insert 1 marker in the 1st st at beg of round and 1 marker in the 39th st (= the sides). Then work A.1 (= 38 sts) - repeat A.1 2 times on round. Continue like this until A.1 has been work 1 time vertically - REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION. Now P 1 round, K 1 round and P 1 round with dark wash. Then K 1 round, AT THE SAME TIME cast on 20 new sts at the end of round. Turn piece, cast off the 20 new sts and cast off the remaining 76 sts from WS. Place pot holder flat with the markers at the sides. Sew the pot holder tog at the bottom with neat, little stitches – sew inside the cast-on edge. Sew the pot holder tog at the top the same way. NOTE: The 20 new sts = loop, sew the end of the loop to the corner of the pot holder.

Knit another pot holder but switch the colours so that the pattern colour is dark wash and the base colour is off white.
