Knit a Pair! The Amazing Pauly Flax Potholders

Pauly Flax Potholders

The happiest kitchen table starts with little handmade touches… and ends with sips and sweets! Introducing the Pauly Flax Potholder Kit, the perfect companion for tea and cookies. This useful knit potholders project can double as a grabber or trivet, serving you well at your next tea party. The knitted texture is so inviting that it will easily become the most used item in your kitchen! I shared about this project back on the blog a while ago, and I finally made the kit for you all!

The finished knit potholder measures 6" square and is finished with a contemporary leather and brass hanger accent. These potholders knit up so fast, you can easily make several sets… for yourself, friends, family, and coworkers. We think it makes an especially lovely hostess gift!

With your Pauly knit potholder kit, you can choose from three colors: Onyx (pictured above), Stone (pictured below), or light and creamy Ivory. They all look fresh and clean, and really show off the texture of the knitted flax cord so well! Each kit makes a set of two potholders.

What you probably didn’t know about flax cord is that it’s great for heat and is also bacteria-resistant. When caring for your potholders, you can submerge them in water and hand wash in the sink. Then just reshape and lay flat to dry. The leather tag is removable for ease!
