Doesn't really work, does it?
And I wonder the same thing about this pattern.
Oh, please don't misunderstand. Objectively, the pattern WORKS, and it looks quite lovely. I'm using Knitpicks Dishy. It's lots of fun to make, so I might start doing these instead of granny squares when I want to use up some yarn.
It's that I want to use this pattern for the 2013 Potholder Swap, and I'm worried that they'll be too holey to use as a potholder.
Thoughts? Possibly the cotton will relax into the spaces and fill the holes. I could also make a plain, single-crochet square as the second layer of the piece.
