Week Twenty-Six: Spring to Autumn

Original intended release date: June 26, 2010. See explanatory post.

Halfway there! Granted, two months later than I thought, but still. A milestone. I have twenty-six more patterns to my name than I did this time last year. How crazy is that?

I love the nifty things you can do with double knitting--using two (or more) strands of yarn to create a double thickness of fabric--and this pattern is really a pretty simple example. I hope you like it.

Spring to Autumn is a double-knit, reversible potholder.

Price: FREE.

Yarn: You will need approximately 80 yards each of two contrasting worsted- or aran-weight cottons for best results. (Pictured: Hobby Lobby “I Love This Cotton!” in Antique Gold – aran, 1 skein / 100g / 180 yards, 100% cotton; Lily Sugar'n Cream Solid in Sage Green – worsted, 1 skein / 70g / 120 yards, 100% cotton)

  • US size 7 needles
  • tapestry needle
Gauge: 4 inches = 15 sts / 22 rows in double-knit stockinette.

(Gauge was measured on one side of the finished double-knit portion before washing. If you swatch, the gauge of a single layer of stockinette will NOT be identical to that of one side of a double-knit square of the same size.)

Finished Measurements: Finished potholder measures approximately 11 inches by 11 inches before washing.


  1. Wow! Halfway there, I am amazed! This pattern is such a clever idea. I love the spring/fall thing especially since the leaves are just beginning to turn here. Thanks!

  2. Thanks very much, alligator! :)
