Bring the outdoors in with this woodsy trivet! This hotpad uses a slip-stitch pattern to make a double-thick fabric, sturdy enough to protect your table. You need only a small amount of bulky-weight yarn; I used about half a ball of vintage rug yarn. A scrap amount of worsted, such as Sugar ‘n Cream, will do for the optional crochet trunk. You can knit your tree in realistic colors, or do one up in a funky shade to match your décor. Try green and red for a festive Christmas tree! If you don’t crochet, you can easily knit a trunk—just make a garter stitch square and sew it on.
