The novelty items can be used for either potholders or dishcloths in any kitchen. Uses a worsted weight cotton yarn to make them sturdy and use-able over and over again. What a great gift idea for all those friends and neighbors that like to dress up their kitchen in Holiday theme! All are easy to knit too. Make the super easy Star, Evergreen Tree, Santa's Boot, or Toy Solider! A good 8 inches tall, they are sized right to pick up hot handles on pots and pans. Or use as a cute dishcloth for over the Holidays.
Try this idea: Make one for each plate, or place setting, for a cute Holiday gift to take home after the dinner is gone! A nice memory of a great Christmas or New Years dinner for family and friends. You will be surprised how easy these are to knit up, using US # 9 knitting needles!
