Square pot holder knitting pattern:

Color A: Cast on 14 sts.

Row 1: sel s, k12, sel s. Turn.

Repeat Row 1 until the height of the square matches its width. Cut the yarn leaving a 20 cm tail.

Color B: In the rows where you change color, always knit the first stitch instead of slipping it. Slip the first stitch in all other rows. Repeat Row 1 for the same number of times as the previous color section. Cut the yarn leaving a 20 cm tail.

Color A: Repeat Row 1 for the same number of times as the previous color section. Cut the yarn leaving a 20 cm tail.

Color B: Repeat Row 1 for the same number of times as the previous color section. 

Bing off all stitches. Cut the yarn leaving a 20 cm tail.

Assembly:

    • Lay your strip of squares flat.
    • Fold each square diagonally, bringing the corners together to form triangles.
    • Align all edges and corners so that they meet properly.
    • Sew along the edges where the squares meet to secure them into the envelope shape. Ensure all sides are neatly sewn for a tidy finish using the tails left after each color change. For sewing the sides, use the method where you insert the needle between two selvedge stitches on one side and then on the other side. Check the video tutorial for more instructions.

Hanger:

Attach the yarn to any corner, chain 10, and slip stitch back to the corner. Do not weave in the tails, simply hide them inside the pot holder.
