I love them and want to try double knitting. I printed the pattern and was surprised to find that they call for 100% wool. I know you wouldn't want man-made fibers for a hot pad, but I assumed cotton would be the logical choice. Would wool yarn really be better?
Jenk57 - it will shrink if you felt it so you would have to take that into consideration and maybe add a border or it may turn out too small.
I plan to use regular wool and wash by hand to avoid the felting.
