Sunshiny Hotpads!

February 3, 2011

This has been a recent project of mine.

And I've just gotten the pattern all written down for ya!
They really aren't for handling hot pans and pots with,
with that many holes in it, it would probably burn your hand.
These are for setting on the table to place warm casserole dishes on and such.

Supplies:
~A pretty color of Red Heart yarn
~A pretty big crochet hook (mine was a J)

Sunshiny Hot Pad
Chain 6 and slip stitch the last stitch to the first stitch (try and say that 5 times)!
(You will be using the "big hole" in the middle to insert your needle).
Chain 2 (counts as first dc) and dc 14 stitches into the round.  End all your rounds by slip stitching the last stitch with the first
Chain 2 (counts as first dc) 2 dc on top of each dc (from the previous row). 
Chain 2 (still counts as first dc) and *dc in the first hole, then 1 dc in the first hole and then 2 dc in the next hole.* Repeat from *-*
Chain 2 (STILL counts as first dc) 1 dc in the first hole and *chain 2, skip a hole and 2 dc in that hole.* Repeat from *-*
You can give it any border you like, this was mine:
Chain 2 (counts as first dc) and dc in the first hole. (Those 2 chains you did in the previous row will be the 1 "big hole which you will dc in) *dc 1 in the "big hole." 2 dc in on top of the 2 dc (from the previous row)* Slip stitch the last stitch to the first stitch. 
To make a ring to hook your potholders on simply: Chain 10 and slip stitch the last chain into the first stitch of your new row and bing off! 
There, you've made a pretty potholder/doilly thing to brighten up a table or kitchen or dining room or whatever.
