Afternoon Trivet is a simple hotpad designed for advanced beginners. The main body is garter stitch worked with light worsted weight yarn held double. The border is an attached I-Cord that includes a detached loop for easy hanging.

Afternoon Trivet is the perfect companion for a pot of hot tea,
coffee mugs, or a plate of freshly warmed scones.

Pattern Details

Garter Stitch, Attached I-Cord

7.5 inches by 7.5 inches square

Yarn: Approximately 200 yards DK or light worsted weight cotton blend yarn

Note: Yarn is held double throughout the entire pattern. I used two separate skeins to make it easier to hold double, but you could use just one if you’re comfortable finding the beginning and end from a single skein and holding double.
