[COLOR="#300090"]I'm not working from a pattern, well, not a knitting pattern anyway.
I've recently been working on crocheted diagonal potholders like:
And when I learned Judy magic cast on I thought of this...
(Edit to add picture... )
I started with the magic cast on with two circulars for knitting in the round. The cast on becomes one center diagonal of the potholder. I made mine about 10 inches long, 44 stitches on each side in worsted weight Lily Sugar 'n Cream cotton. It should make about a 7 inch square potholder. I'm not sure how may rows wide my stripes should be for them to be of uniform width. That's one answer I'll find out along the way.
I'll knit for about five inches and then do an invisible bind off from the middle of one side to the middle of the other. That will be the perpendicular diagonal on the opposite side from my start. In theory.
I'll let you know how it goes. I had to frog back to my first color change after deciding I hadn't done it right. I'm using what Amy calls the double knit-in join.
Oh, I'll borrow my DW's camera and see about posting a picture.
[Edit I put the picture of the finished potholder at the top! :)]
