In this online course, through simple step-by-step instructions, you'll learn how to knit a potholder.

Knitted quite tightly in a heavy wool yarn, this potholder adds a touch of retro charm to your kitchen, and offers excellent protection from those hot pot handles. Or if you want to use up a different super-bulky (super-chunky) yarn, just make sure the gauge (tension) is tight enough to give a firm fabric.

This project is suitable for anyone with knowledge of basic knitting techniques and stitches. The resulting potholder measures 8.75 in (22cm) square, excluding loop.

Fiona says, "For me, one of the best things about knitting is that with a bit of confidence and experimentation, it’s so easy to add your own touches to a basic pattern and get fabulous results. You can simply change a color or use a yarn with a different look. So please, check out your stash, soak in some inspiration—and create something to fall in love with."
