Farmhouse Knit Potholder Pattern

The cutest farmhouse knit potholder pattern. The perfect potholder for your farmhouse decor! It’s the perfect first pattern for a beginner knitter because you knit just one stitch on repeat. And you can choose to knit a small, medium or large sized potholder.

Ahem, if you’re a beginner knitter… choose the small one, and knit several of them. Now, you have a bunch of gifts too! (You can use them for coasters too.)

Mindful practice leads to perfection.
