Cute for any kitchen! Knit up the cactus or watermelon slice! OR knit up both for a cool gift! These are both fast and easy to knit. Such a novelty item, and not your ordinary potholders for sure! Use worsted weight cotton yarns, knitting needles, US # 6 to make them thick and heat resistant. Cactus measures 8½ tall. Melon slice is 8½ by 5. Make some not only for friends, but for yourself too! These make up quickly!
