Hotpad is reversible... checkered on one side and solid on the other.
Works great as a potholder also.

Optional Use: Picnic Napkin Holder
During assembly leave one edge open.
Insert napkins into the opening to keep
them from blowing away during your picnic.

Checkered Hotpad

The following pattern is my original design.
Please only copy or print this pattern for personal use.
Please contact me if you find any errors.


Hook: Size I
4 Ply Cotton Yarn

Stitches used: ch, sl st, sc, hdc, rev sc.

A reverse single crochet is worked from left to right; whereas a regular single crochet stitch is worked from right to left. Insert your hook into the stitch or space indicated, then yarn over and pull up a loop. (You should have two loops on your hook.) Yarn over and draw through both of the loops on your hook. This stitch takes a bit of practice but the outcome is well worth the effort.

Difficulty: EASY/MEDIUM
