Scalloped Potholder

For a while I have been wanting to make a trivet for the table to keep hot dishes on. The problem was that I mainly use acrylic yarns which would (hypothetically) turn into a puddle of melted plastic under the hot dish. 😳

So, finally I got around to getting some nice gray cotton yarn with a 50% off coupon from AC Moore (only needed about 4 oz) and found this pattern called the Scalloped Potholder by Priscilla Hewitt online. Priscilla designed a beautiful and functional pattern that works wonderfully for protecting the table or your hands from dishes that are hot out of the oven. What you do is make two identical pieces which you then single crochet together. The double layer gives a nice thickness which is great for protecting your hands or table. 🙂
