Cotton Hotpad/Potholders

Recommended Posts

After reading and commenting about cotton yarns not too many days ago, here, I decided to get serious about using up a bin full of Peaches & Cream I knew I wouldn't make anything for myself with. Rummaging through trying to find matching lavenders, I came across a ball of scented lavender. I forgot they even made it for awhile. I never did find any other scents other than the lavender when it was available. For this 3 pc set I used 1.5 balls of the variegated lavender and 1 ball of the scented solid lavender.

Don't let the Star hotpad intimidate you. It is way easy to make. I added 1 extra row of the scented solid lavender on the outside to make it just a tad bit wider for larger pans.

Thank you ladies!

 

Mary Jo: Go for it. I made the star in one day. Of course that might have gone quicker than normal because I was trying to get rid of that smelly cotton. I love lavender but, it does not like me. Lol

Check out the project photos on Ravelry. I was just trying to find a few color ideas. There are so many different color schemes to use.

Nice!  Yes, those flower ones are fun, it's been a while but if I remember they sort of fold themselves into shape.

 

I think they still sell the scented yarn, I saw it at Joanns recently.  Oh look, it's on sale...   http://www.joann.com/lily-sugar-n-cream-scents-yarn/10822146.html  I could see using a scented hotpad , but the thought of crocheting with it .. not so much.

Well lookie there. They do still sell it.

It was tough using the lavender scent this time around. I sneezed quite a bit but got it finished. The Hubster said I was sneezing to the beat of my hook! LOL I would have done much better with one of the other fragrances I'm sure.

That doesn't sound too good with the lemon scent either then. Guess I'll steer clear.

Thank you Jayashiangel. I'm not kidding when I say it's easy to make. I'm going to make another with the stash later on. I saw a striped one on Pinterest I really like.
