A knitting pattern for a double knitted ghost potholder. For your info, the ghost's name is Boohoohoo. Actually he is quite a friendly ghost.

This is not a beginner pattern, you should be familiar with the technique. Double knitting creates a double-sided, reversible fabric with the effect of mirrored colors on the opposite sides. It is also thicker than knitted fabrics normally are, which is very convenient especially for potholders that are used to lift hot casseroles and pots.
What you need is two colors of cotton yarn, preferably one of them white, and knitting needles. I would recommend going down a needle size from what is recommended on your yarn ball band. Double knitting looks neater in a dense gauge. The pattern is charted only. It includes an introduction to double knitting, but won't replace a tutorial. The crochet border and hanging loop are not a must.

Use the finished potholder as a Halloween decoration or use it year-round, just as you like. You can use it as a dishcloth as well.

If you purchase the pattern, start knitting and (which I don't hope) get to a point where you don't know how to go on, my contact info is in the pattern. I am always happy to help. Please bear in mind that I sometimes need to sleep and don't spend all day on the internet. But I check my mails every day.

The pattern is available in English and in German.
Please read below for more pattern details.


Ghosts can be scary. I have to admit I never saw one, so I won't chime in with my comments on the question if they exist or not.

However, here is a double knitted potholder showing a ghost. Remember, it is knitted. It is not real.

This is a charted pattern. It includes a short introduction to double knitting. If you have never used the technique before, you may find it helpful to watch tutorials. The potholder has a crochet border around and a hanging loop, which requires knowledge of basic crochet stitches. If you don't want to do that, there is nothing lost if you leave it off.

Difficulty level: intermediate (double knitting, working from charts, basic crochet stitches)

Yarn: Steinbach Capri (100% cotton, 125m/50g; 137yds/1.76oz), 1 ball of each color. Sample used 58m (63yds) of each color.

Needles: 2.5mm/US 1 1/2. If you want to crochet a border, you also need a hook in size 3.75mm (F).

Notions: yarn needle

Gauge: 22 stitches/33 rows in doubleknit stockinette = 10cm (4in)

Size: 20 x 20 cm (8 x 8 in)
