All these Responses are Correct.

Heather, how are you doing on your pot holder?

Each of the above responses are correct and Mary Grace's two part video is excellent. I even picked up a couple tips I'll be using on my next double thick, diagonal stitched potholder.

Melmac and luvmeowers, yes I did convert the pattern to knit. I started with a provisional cast on an then continued in the round. I finished with grafting (or kitchener) stitch to close the opposite side. I even made a post somewhere on this forum with more details (though I am not sure it qualifies as a fully written pattern.) Jack's Magic (Diagonally Knit, Square) Potholder

As far as I know, I am the only one who knits these. I've only ever seen crochet patterns for them.

Evan and Blueygh2, you could use a simple slip stitch to join the finish seam. I did that with one of my black and gold striped potholders. I turned it inside out so the slip stitch ridge was on the inside. When I had an inch or so (2 or 3 cm) left open I turned it back RS out and whipped the last bit closed.

In this drawing I made, the ovals are the chain stitches an the X's are the single crochet sts.

Now I'm irresistibly drawn to start another potholder. Maybe I should take some video of how I crochet or knit mine.

No Evan, it's "simply elegant" and "elegantly simple".

I love it! I'm going to wind some of my cone into a skein and dye it to make a few more. I could have never gotten so many potholders at the store for the price I paid for the cheapo cone of yarn :o)

I was thinking of doing the same thing! I got quite a lot of 4 ounce balls of white cotton on a really great sale at Joann's so I thought I would try dying it with kool-aid. I saw how to do that somewhere online and haven't yet tried it.

I'm left with some stray balls of yarn, so I thought of making some potholders as well. And Mister E, your's looks lovely!
Simple and clean, elegant.

Interesting. I've made a ton of these and never did the increase. I was taught to just crochet around and around the chain. It always worked. I'll try it with the increase to see what the difference is.
