Crochet Pattern: Tapestry Crochet Hot PadBy A Guest Writer – 8 Comments
|A Guest Post by Linda Cee.
Have you ever wanted to try tapestry crochet while crocheting in the round? Here’s a neat hot pad pattern to try out! Worked in 2 colors, this pattern creates a unique design. You’ll need a basic knowledge of how to change colors in crochet and how to carry the yarn in your work. For an extra thick and sturdy hot pad, make 2 of the circles and crochet them together when you’re done.
Finished Size: 8″ (20.5 cm) in diameter
Medium Weight Yarn (approximately 30 yards each of color A and color B)
Preferably 100% cotton or a natural fiber, as acrylic yarn can melt at high temperatures
Crochet Hook H (5.00 mm)
Gauge: Not too important for this pattern.
