Last week I showed you a super easy way to make a hot pad. Today I have another version that my sister taught me. It is not quite as quick and easy, but it makes up for that in style. Doesn't the scalloped edge add so much?
One nice thing about this pattern, is that you can make a longer hot pad. My sister made me one that is twice as long. It is perfect for cookie sheets, I don't have to get out two hot pads.
I started this several years ago and just recently finished it. Because of that I didn't have pictures of the steps. I started a mini hot pad to show you the process.
I used a G hook.
To begin, chain 30.
Row 1 - Single crochet in each chain. Chain 1.
Row 2 - Single Crochet in back loop and unused loop of foundation chain. Chain 1.
Row 3 - Single Crochet in backloop and unused loop of 2nd row.
Once you have made the hot pad as big as you'd like, you will do your last row. You will single crochet in both loops and also the unused loop from the previous row.
You could be done at this point...
Next you will start your scallop:
Skip one stitch. In the next stitch you will double crochet, triple crochet and double crochet all in the same stitch. Then skip one stitch. Slip stitch in the next stitch.
Then repeat all the way around the hot pad. Fasten off and weave in ends.
