It was so beautiful out yesterday morning, so I planted flowers, took the kids swimming, & did some more outside work. Then the afternoon thunderstorms rolled in, so I used that as the perfect reason to crochet up these simple crochet hot pads. Not Like I really needed a reason!

The Yarn That’s Perfect for Hotpads!

I had some leftover cotton yarn from other projects, so I decided to use that up and make some hot pads!! I held two skeins together at the same time to make these thicker and sturdier. I used Lily Sugar ‘n Cream in Grape, Soft Ecru, & Hot Blue.

The Soft Ecru color was used with both hot pads while the Grape & Hot Blue colors were alternated. I also used a Size J Crochet Hook and a yarn needle to weave in the loose ends when I was finished.
