Twice Knit Mug Rug Pattern



I'm supposed to be finishing up my spring house cleaning - the kitchen is the last room to tackle! But, somehow I got sidetracked and decided to get this pattern up and running on our Etsy and Ravelry sites. I made myself two of these little guys and just love them.

It might be a new technique to some of you and is called "twice knit". It makes the knitted fabric more dense and actually appears more woven than knitted. Really perfect for mug rugs!

How about if we do a little giveaway of this pattern? Just leave a comment on this post and on Saturday (the day before Easter), I'll randomly draw one name to be the winner. Please leave an email for contact to make it easier for me. The winner will receive this pattern as a downloadable PDF pattern. My printer is down, so I don't have the ability to mail out a hard copy for this giveaway.

Good luck and I'll see you all on Saturday.
