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.
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 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.
