Verse of the day...

3 I thank my God every time I remember you. 4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:3-6)

Freebie Friday...

Magic Hotpad........

Yarn: Peaches & Cream Cotton

Skill Level:
Hook size: I

ch 32
Sc in 2nd ch from hook THROUGH BACK LOOP. Sc THROUGH BACK LOOPS in each ch to end.
Sc 2 more times in last ch, so you will now be able to sc on the opposite side of the chain.
What was the front loop will now become the back loop. Sc in back loop of each ch back to the beginning.
Sc one more time in last ch.

Sc THROUGH BACK LOOP (where the needle is) of each sc around and around.

The two corners will start to curl - don't worry - as they should.

This is what it will look like as you keep crocheting around and around.

Crochet until you can fold the potholder so that the top edges touch. It looks like you may be there. Let's check...

Yep! Time to finish off, leaving a tail 4 times the length of the seam.
Sew up the seam. I go under one half of the stitch on one side...
and under the whole stitch on the other side.
There you have it - Like magic...... a hotpad!

God Bless,

I like to add a chain 15 or so loop on the final "round" before I finish off and sew it up.... ;)
