Free knitting pattern: Spotholder Potholders

Spotted Potholder/Trivet   

If you’re going to the trouble of knitting a potholder, make it a cool one. This modernist, 3-D hot pad makes a colorful kitchen accent, doubles as a trivet and gives you the option of felting or not. Choose a beefy solid yarn or practice your stranding and knit contrasting-colored bobbles for a project with plenty of juice.
