Making Hot Pads To Go With My Chickens

Or they could be table mats, place mats, pot holders, dish cloths…

The chickens can stand alone but I thought they would look nicer sitting on top of something. So, I created these mats. They are double-sided, nice and thick. I played around with the design, had a few flops, but finally got it to match up with the design in my head.

The hot pad is my own design. (Chicken potholder pattern is in Gooseberry Patch, Fun-to-Crochet Gifts book.)

I am calling them Granny Hexie Hot Pads/Table Mats. I used Patons Classic Wool. Ecru and Rich Red.

    Wonderful idea, Donna!

    The little chicken looks happy as a clam (is that just a New England expression?) on her nest.

    The mats looks lovely and thick. They’d be so pretty on the table, as mats for casserole dishes.

    As always, you are so creative! πŸ™‚

      Thanks, again… I wish they looked cute as a single mat because making 2 to single crochet together takes longer. But I like making them. πŸ˜€
