In my part of the world,

Mother's Day is celebrated on the 2nd Sunday in May. So here's a pattern for cute heart shaped potholders to accompany the cake you bake for your mum.

It's knitted in one piece, which minimizes the number of ends you have to weave in - and all in garter stitch. They come in two sizes - a larger and a smaller one.

If you've never done short rows, this might be the project to learn it, because it's quickly done <3
