Roll Stitch Hot Pad

I created this hot pad yesterday. I was trying to come up with something extra to give mom for Mother's Day. While searching the web, I came across the "Roll Stitch" on Annie's Attic (http://www.anniesattic.com/). I thought that stitch would make a great hot pad so I set out to make it like the coaster pattern shown that day. I start the pattern using the first 3 rounds of the coaster, all the rest are my creation. (The free pattern on Annie's Attic is only available for one day so I have no way to link to the actual pattern).

Thank You for the kind comment! I love the way the roll stitch adds depth. You may want to start with 4 yarn overs for your first time trying the roll stitch.

I love this pattern!! Beautiful!!

I havea question though on looking at the instructions--for the back are you doing only sc the entire way around to make this as big as the front?

How do you recommend attaching them together?

Thanks--and I love this!! I'm in the process of teaching my oldest daughter (27) to crochet, and I can't wait to show her this!!

Oh, I LOVE this! I am making a crocheted box with handles(large enough to hold about 6 rolled bath towels) and filling it with bath and kitchen items I have crocheted for my daughter. She is moving away with her new husband and setting up house. She will love the potholder/trivets I make in her colors from your pattern! Thank you so much!
