Tree of Life, double knit, potholder

My second double knit pot holder.  Design created myself.  Used sugar and cream cotton yarns.    This is the 'front' side, but the back side is pretty too.

I liked the bottom solid edge created by using the one color yarn cast on method ( cast-on wrapped around 2 needles) and then in the first row, add the other color by knitting and purling into each stitch.  Since the double knit cast-off methods I found, left a 'purl bar' on one side, I knit-purl all the stitches with one color ( navy) and the cast off, by k2tog and casting off.  This created a nice solid frame at the top too.

Here's a pic showing the flip side.
