This is my test sample for the swap. Like some others in this swap, I am using one of the blocks from 200 Crochet Blocks. It is "American Beauty." It is not thick enough, and has too many holes, on its own, so I will add a square to the back in one of the solid colors. The hot pads for the swap will be made of 3 colors: the center "flower" will be one color, two rows around it in a 2nd color and the outer rows in a 3rd color. The back will probably be the third color, and I will use the middle color to join the back to the front and crochet an edging.

This has been great fun finding yarn (still looking), and deciding upon a pattern. Thank you so much Adrian and Maritza.


  1. Really pretty. I'm so envious of all of you and your potholders! I'm not involved in the swap, but I'm certainly admiring all of your work, here! I need to learn how to crochet, better than I do now. I want to make a potholder!

  2. i like the raised flower - i need to try one soon!
