Notes

  • Batting is used for heat resistance. This will provide more padding and protection from hot surfaces, however, two layers of crocheted cotton is typically thick enough for short term protection (from oven to stove top for example). Cotton Batting can be found in any store that sells fabric.
  • 100% cotton yarn (and batting) is required. Acrylics can melt if they become too hot.
  • A yard of fabric = 36″H, 1/4 yard of fabric = 9″H, but the width is 54″ wide and batting doesn’t have a specific cutting direction.
  • Beginning chains do not count as stitches.
  • When stitches appear in parenthesis, work them in the same space.
  • When stitches appear between asterisks, repeat them as indicated.
