This pattern is GREAT for holding your hot bowl of soup OR cold bowl of ice cream!! It can also go in the microwave while re-heating items in your bowl and the corners can be used for carrying. Be careful to NOT get your hot pad wet before putting it in the microwave. This can cause serious burns!!
if you are doing two different colors, or just want a neater finish, you can finish off here and re-attach yarn for the next rnd. I just ch 1 and continue onto the next rnd if I am working in just one color.
