So, as you've read, I've been trying to decorate my new place. My kitchen is green, and my only (well-worn) oven mit was red. This was not allowed. Found a pattern on ravlery for a cotton one. I read about it, and people said that it protected their hands quite well. So I made it. And it works great!
Yarn: 4 skeins of Sugar and Cream cotton, with plently left over for matching dishcloths.
Pattern and Hook as written.
