Mimi Cat Pot holder

I finally had a chance to redo my double knit cat pot holder.  This time for a girlfriend with a black cat named Mimi.  She saw the other one on my website and wanted to know if it could be made in black.

Her cat is jet black with green eyes.  My friend’s house has sort of a classic, french, black & white decor with slashes of pink, so hopefully this will fit right in.  À la vôtre

The first cat pot holder pattern originally had legs as well, but I was new to double knitting and needed to edit the legs out after I started because I was using too big of needles and the pot holder was going to be too big if I left the legs on.  The finished size on this potholder is 7.75″ x 7.75″.

Here's the other side ( a cute chubby white kitty):

It can be done in 3 or 2 colors as well.  http://www.sg-creations.org

About six_legged

I've been knitting for about 5 years.  Self taught by books and internet.   I've mostly just made scarves and slippers.  This year, I've been attending  social meetings where other knitters bring their yarn and it has inspired me to try some new things.   I made dish clothes for gifts and because my boyfriend uses the dishcloth as a potholder, I taught myself how to double knit so the potholders would be thicker.   I've been having lots of fun designing potholders on grid (in excel) and can't wait to knit my next one which is a dahlia.

I also want to create a soft remote storage basket for the couch  and designs are under way.    If anyone has thought or helps on this please drop me a note.

I've also crocheted since I was a kid, plus tons of other non-yarn arts & crafts



One thought on “Mimi Cat Pot holder

  1. Six_legged, you always impress me! I just love this little kitty (and her vanilla twin!) – so cute and cool at the same time!

    Your use of this technique, which you were brand new to such a short tme ago, is so neat and crisp – very professional. You’re really encouraging me to go ahead and give double knitting a try (whenever that may be…).

    Well done as always!
