Pot Holder / Grill Mitt

Lion Brand® Lion® Cotton

GAUGE:

16 st x 24 rows = 4 in [10 cm.] 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. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

Editor's note: This pattern is written for 100% cotton yarn. Yarns with synthetic content such as acrylic are not appropriate for this type of application as they can melt.

FINISHING

The rows that were knit with only one strand are where the mitt is folded. Laying it flat, fold the ends so that they are on top.
The folded ends will serve as pockets for the hand and thumb. Using a single strand of yarn and the large-eyed blunt needle and starting at the fold, sew each side together.
