SO FAR, THIS HAS TURNED OUT TO BE MY FAVORITE POTHOLDER DESIGN FOR MY KITCHEN - simple, and pretty. I actually designed this several months ago - finally got around to posting it.

 

 

I am using red and white cotton for my kitchen - bought 2 14-oz cones - will buy more as i need them.

 

my own design - very simple cable

It should be made of 100% cotton or 100% wool, to provide heat protection and not succumb to the heat itself. Acrylic can melt under high-temp conditions.
