What a cool new hot pad! I love to crochet and after I first saw this pattern at a friend’s house I knew I had to make one for myself — and maybe a few for my close friends. I’m not advanced in crochet by any means, and this pattern was a bit hard for me to understand, but I made it through and I think the end product looks pretty wonderful!
Want to make one of these for your very own?
- Crochet hook – I used size I, pattern calls for Size G
- Yarn, 2 skeins in different colors – Be careful what type of yarn you use because you don’t want to set a hot pan down and have your yarn burn!!!
- Yarn Needle (for weaving ends)
- Scissors (for cutting yarn)
Please visit the Craft Yarn Council website for the exact instructions for this project. I recommend printing out the visual diagrams for reference because it is hard to remember what pattern to follow once you change colors.
My design slightly varies from the instructions because I sometimes like to travel off the beaten path when crafting. (Or rather, mess up and have to try and redeem myself!) Regardless, the hot pad only took me approximately a day to crochet and was a fun new project. I think I will make a few more to give away as wedding or housewarming gifts.
