Yellow and Red Hot Pad

I am taking a little break from thread crocheting as I have several yarn projects in mind. The first one is a hot pad for my kitchen.

red and yellow crochet hot pad

I found the pattern at Gracious Rain. It was the doily-like middle of this hot pad that drew my attention. I used mercerized cotton in red and yellow colors that I had in my stash. The hot pad in the original pattern was done in white and blue, which looks very pretty too.

I had to add one extra round of double crochets to make my hot pad bigger.

The pattern is well written, and I did not have any trouble following it.

  6. I'm enjoying the visit to your place...what is it about the look of the lacy thread crochet? It entices & inspires. I enjoyed looking at the crochet you mom did, lovely, treasures to be sure. I'll definately be back to see what beauties you have in store. I'm going to be doing the snowflake hot pad in a CAL, that Gloria is having at her place....
