I submitted this for Knitty's Christmas issue a year or two ago, and it was rejected- I'm ok with that, it's pretty simple!  The peppermint can be anything: trivet, placemat, dishrag, top of a hat, whatever.  You can add/subtract stitches based on the size you need very easily.


http://luthientinuviel.com/shortrowpeppermint.jpg

Finished measurements:  8 inches

Materials:

1 ball Lily Sugar & Cream Cotton (Length: 120 yd) #00001 White

1 ball Lily Sugar & Cream Cotton (Length: 120 yd) #00095 Red

Size 6 straight knitting needles

Size G crochet hook

Joining needle

For potholder:

Warm & Natural Craft Size 34" x 45" 100 % Cotton quilt batting

Gauge: 10 garter ridges per inch

Instructions:

With # 6 needles, co 20 of red yarn

Row 1: K

Row 2: K to the last 2 stitches, slip next stitch purlwise, move yarn to front, return slipped stitch to left needle, move yarn to back.  Turn and K to end.

Row 3: K to the last 4 stitches, slip next stitch purlwise, move yarn to front, return slipped stitch to left needle, move yarn to back.  Turn and K to end.

Continue in this way until all stitches are knit.  Attach white yarn.

K 2 rows

Continue with short row pattern as with red stripe.

Continue in this way until you have 6 red and 6 white stripes, ending with a white stripe.  K over all stitches and BO.

Finishing:

With red yarn and needle, weave in and out the inner edge of the peppermint, drawing it together to close the center gap.  Tie.  Join red and white edge together with mattress stitch.  Weave all ends.  Block.

For potholder:

M 2 peppermints.  Cut 8 inch circle of craft batting and sandwich between both peppermints, joined edges on the inside.  Do not align joined edges.  With size G crochet hook and white yarn, sc around edge to join.

For trivet:

M1.  With size G crochet hook, sc around edge.

CO 8 and make a tree ornament or a coaster.  
CO 36 and make placemats.  
Use green yarn and make spearmints!

Don't take it personally; Knitty turns down some pretty sweet patterns all the time; I think it's great! I'll have to whip some up for holiday gifts! It's a brilliant and well-thought-out pattern, in my opinion!
