I just finished knitting a heart shaped pot holder. I got the free pattern from Lion Brand's website: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/BK4K-0602002.html?noImages= I am trying to use what I have in my stash. So I used 2 different types of red yarn (one being Lion Brand's Homespun) and one acrylic white yarn. I used size 8 knitting needles (too small, so it is really tight). Now I just need to weave in the ends. It turned out pretty good. Next time I will just use 2 strands of yarn with the same needle size.
