Each potholder has two layers for extra heat protection. It is a greater starte project for anyone who has not worked in rounds. My advice is always us a stitch marker for accuracy and this will ensure that both sides of your potholder have the same amount of stitches when you come to stitch both sides together.
There is a small amount of sewing decoration using a basic chain stitch. Alternatively you can use a surface slip stitch to create the line decoration on the lemon and the watermelon.
