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).
