I find that keeping towels in the kitchen usually leads to them being used as hot pads. And there are times when I need to clean up a spill that I've thought of using a pot holder.
This way, one item can do both things!
Approximately ten inches by ten inches, the front of each pad is made with 100% cotton yarn from Peaches and Crème brand yarn, using a complicated lotus stitch. This stitch adds a lot of bulk to the front of the pad, in a beautiful pattern. The back of the pad is cotton terrycloth, and the two sides are joined with a decorative cotton print fabric.
To order, please select the yarn color from the Peaches and Crème website. The colors available are:
Faded Denim Blue
Sail Away Stripes
Stars and Stripes
Sweet Pea Stipes (Sweet Pea Stipes contains a purple stripe that is not showing in the photo).
Butter Cream Ombre
Cool Breeze Ombre
Country Side Ombre
Faded Denim (Ombre)
Rose is a Rose
If you wish for me to use a specific print pattern for the border, please let me know where I can find this. If it is more expensive than the fabric I typically use, ($4 a yard) I will factor the difference into the final price of your order. Otherwise, will select a coordinating fabric myself.
Please list the color of the yarn you wish me to use and be sure to include the four digit product number when filling out the form. Please fill out the form below and I will send you a confirmation email to discuss the details of your hand knitted counter top pads, and will then accept payment to may Verified Paypal Account.
