Winter Cardinals DK Potholder
I’ve always loved the Cardinal as a symbol of winter. Growing up in California, I didn’t have the pleasure of seeing this beautiful bird, but as an adult, I now live in the Midwest and love seeing it’s striking bright red color against the freshly driven white snow. I also love hearing its distinctive call, so cheery and happy sounding even in the dead of cold winter!
Now you can bring the Cardinal and its beauty into your home by making this double-knit potholder featuring the male and female birds. If you’re unfamiliar with double knitting, this small potholder is a great way to learn this knitting technique. The pattern includes helpful video tutorials to teach you this addicting technique! Both sides are the same, except with reversed colors. You’ll get the accomplishment of finishing a beautiful project and the confidence of adding a new skill to your knitting basket.
