  • Tetris Potholder

*Note: In the pictures, the potholder is being held by a two-year-old. Those are not adult-sized hands. 🙂

Decorate your kitchen with this fun Tetris potholder!

Double knit, the potholder is reversible, with opposite colors on the reverse side. Use color changing yarn or change colors every few rows for interesting color combinations or use a solid yarn for a more classic look.

Instructions are included for the double knitting technique. The finished size is approximately 7 inches by 7 inches (17.8 cm by 17.8 cm). The color work design is chart only, not written instructions.

Disclaimer: This pattern is for creating a decoration only. The knitted item might not protect you from hot items, and contact with hot items could melt certain types of yarn. Please use caution.


  • Size 5 US (3.75 mm) needles.
  • Size 4 US (3.5 mm) needles (optional for a neater cast on edge).
  • Approximately 50 yards (45.7 m) each of two contrasting colors of worsted weight yarn makes one potholder. Cotton works great for these.
  • Needle to weave in ends.
