I love to crochet and wanted to make something other than round and couldn't find what I wanted anywhere so I designed my own hexagon pattern. This hot pad is easy to make. Make sure to use only cotton or wool yarn. The possibilities are endless. Make in a solid color or two colors like the purple and lime hot pads shown. Pattern uses one color. Note: Chicken potholder and other items shown are props for my photos. Pattern is for hexagon hot pad only. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Some knowledge of basic crochet stitches is helpful but not critical since pattern has step-by-step illustrations. GAUGE Hexagon measures 4 1/4" by 4 1/2" after Round 2. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Six rounds, finished size: 12" by 11"
