Last week I was cooking and pulled a pan of rice out and set it on a hot pad. This is an old hot pat, made from lovely cotton yarn, but old and apparently gross. When I picked up the pan, the hot pad left ick all over the counter and I was irritated. So I threw the hot pad in the laundry and moved on, until I found my stash of Sugar and Cream in my craft room (when I was cleaning-ish). I’m telling you all this, because this is what led my brain to where it was when I created this pattern. Looking at all this pretty cotton yarn gave me an idea and I was mad at the other hot pad, I set out to replace it. The “Hot Stuff” on the pad here was just for fun. I hope you all think it’s as funny as I do and make a dozen of them!

You can get an ad-free downloadable pdf of this pattern in my Ravelry shop for $.50.

Materials:

  • US G (4.00) mm crochet hook
  • Worsted weight/ size #4/ medium weight yarn
    • 1.6 Oz/ 77 yards
    • I used Sugar and Cream yarn for this (3 colors)
    • For hot pads or pot holders, use cotton yarn because acrylic will burn/ melt
  • Yarn needleRavelry link

Gauge:

  • 4.5” = 19 dcs x 9 rows

Terms/ stitches:

  • RS: right side
  • Ch: chain
  • St: stitch
  • Slip st: slip stitch
  • Sc: single crochet

Notes:

  • This pattern is worked back and forth in rows, with a turn at the end/ beginning.
  • You work two pieces of the “base” and then secure them together by working along the edges with row 32.
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
  • This pattern is worked from the bottom up.
  • All of the stitches in this pattern are single crochets, because of this the sides portion (where all the color changes are) only tells you how many stitches to do in what color, this is what the number in the parenthesis means.
  • Rather than changing, cutting, and weaving in the ends of all the colors, the yarn is carried through the bags in the photos. Here’s a great tutorial on color changes. In this pattern, the active yarn is worked over the inactive.
  • Also check out this post about tapestry crochet from Moogly, it’s helpful.
  • You can replace the chain row with a foundation single crochet row.

Finished dimensions:

  • Height: 7.25″
  • Width: 7.75″

Tada! I was SO excited to show this to everyone and it was one of the few designs that I didn’t show off before I released it because I wanted it to be a surprise. Was it a good surprise? I hope so!
Have a good week.
