[knitting] Ammonite Potholder

New potholder/dish cloth:

Ammonite hotpad. First attempt at the pattern. The middle is a little wonky and my stitch count is off but I think I have the hang of it now. More ammonites to come... #knitting #ammonite #dishcloth #hotpad

The pattern is free on Ravelry: Ammonite Potholder. I made this with Lily Sugar 'n Cream cotton on US 4 needles. I can't remember the last time I used this yarn for anything but it's like coming back to an old friend. I used it so much in my early knitting days for potholders and dish cloths- I have a pretty good stash of miscellaneous colors.

There was a definite learning curve to this pattern- my stitch count was off on the outer sections but I love how it turned out and I've already started a second (which is going much more smoothly). I think I'll stick to this pattern for a while and make quite a lot for holiday gifts. And choosing different colors for every single one should keep this from getting too boring.
