Here is a quick and easy pattern for some mini hot pads to use on those plates or bowls that are too hot to remove from the microwave. A pair can be made in about an hour or less. :)

Thank you very much for the pattern. I will be making some of these. So much more convenient then using a huge hotpad.

Oops! I'll add that to the pattern, but I used a H/8 5.0 mm
Thanks for catching that. :hook

What a great idea, Carolyn! I'm going to whip up some of those for my own kitchen but they make great hostess gifts as well. Thanks for the pattern.

Would it be possible to use acrylic yarn for these? I don't have any cotton and I want to make these right now! Thank You!

I have never tried pot holders in anything but cotton. You can try acrylic and see if it gets hot to the touch.

Acrylic yarn is NOT a good idea for this. It can possibly melt if it gets to hot leading to burns.

Thanks to all for the advice. I broke down and made a trip to WM for the cotton yarn. Can't wait to try these for stocking stuffers!
