Simple hotpad and potholder

This pattern is quite easy - it uses only 3 basic stitches- ss, sc and ldc. If you are not familiar with linked double crochet stitch now it is time to try it - it is simple and unlike most of the other stitches leaves no holes making it perfect for hotpads, potholders and winter crochet projects. 

I have made 2 squares and then sew them together with a row of sc around thus making sure I'm not going to burn my hands when I use it in the kitchen next time :)

This pattern uses US crochet terms.

Yarn: worsted weight yarn - any combination of color
Hook size: 5 mm(hook size conversion chart)
Stitches used: ss, sc, dc
Finished size: 7.5 x 7.5 in/19 x 19 cm 

ss - slip stitch
sc - single crochet
ldc - linked double crochet

How to make LDC - if you are not familiar with this stitch check this photo tutorial.


The linked double crochet creates a solid structure that looks different on the different side of the crochet work. I have added a row of single crochet between each row of linked dc so the rows looks the same on the right and wrong side of the work.

Row 1 - start with 31 chains, sc in second stitch from hook. Turn.

Row 2 - ch 3, ldc in each st. Turn. 

Row 3 - ch 1, sc in each st till the end. Turn.

Repeat row 2 and 3 ten more times. This is the first square. Make one more and join them with a row of sc acround.

This is it.
