A new stitch, a new project

Posted on October 30, 2012 at 3:40 PM

I recently learned a new stitch, the extended single crochet, and I immediately thought it would be a great stitch to use for hot pads/trivets because of the density of the stitch.

So I decided to give it a try making a few hot pads for my son's new apartment.   

If you like to make things for your home or for others, give this easy pattern a try.

You can adjust the starting chain to make them any size.   Use a single strand and you will have a nice dish/wash cloth as well.

Great pattern, but I could never figure out "row 2" instructions". Based on what the pattern says, I could not "...draw up a loop, YO and drawn all 3 loops on the hook. I only had 2 loops...not three. What am I doing wrong? I just repeated row 1 until I completed the trivet.
