Image of Pot Holder / Hot Pad
This is a great beginning project -- the hotpad is luxuriously thick and won't develop thin spots like store-bought potholders!

Pot Holder / Hot Pad

Lion Brand® Lion® Cotton

GAUGE:

5 sc = 2 inches; 8 rows = 3 inches. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

POTHOLDER: With 3 strands of yarn held together, ch 21.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across (20 sc). Ch 1, turn.
Row 2: Sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn. Rep Row 2 until piece measures 8" from beg.
Last Row: Sc in each sc across, end (ch 10, sl st in last sc made) for loop. Do not fasten off.
Edging Row: Ch 1, sc in same space as last sl st, then sc in each row-end st along the side of potholder to next corner, 3 sc in corner, sc in each st of starting ch to next corner, 3 sc in corner, sc in each row-end st along opposite side edge of potholder. Fasten off.

Pot Holder / Hot Pad Reviewed by Lori K Johnson on 2013-05-08 *****
This is a great pattern, I love it. Works up fast and looks great. I'm going to try to do it with 2 strands and see how it turns out. Using 3 strands is a nice thick pot holder/hot pad.
I will be making lots more for gifts.
