4 Comments

This easy pot holder knitting pattern from Lily Sugar n' Cream works up very quickly with three strands of yarn. Create a functional and decorative accent for your kitchen in no time. This pattern coordinates with many knit items in our Kitchen Knits category, and is a great way to use up scrap yarn from a bigger project.

Hmmm....I agree, how do you knit with 3 strands of one color if you only need one ball of that color of yarn? Do you divide the yarn into thirds?
