    1. Nope. It's two squares together. The thickness and cotton is the "batting".

    1. Yes. I used the Peaches n Cream cotton yarn. Never use acrylic, it can melt!

  6. I have recently gotten this pattern and used it quite a number of times. It is a fast, easy pattern and does provide an ample thickness. The only difference is I put a scalloped edge on mine. Probably the best pot holder pattern I've had.

  7. Hi Shelly. This is such a cute pattern. I made 2 sets but I was wondering if you have ever made just one (not the 2 specified for a pot holder) and used it for a dish cloth? It might not stretch out of shape if I tried a crab stitch border. What do you think?

  9. I have done 5-6 rows and my edges are curving up. Is this how it is supposed to be or am I doing something wrong? Thank you!

    1. What do you mean curving? Like the edge is curving to where the rows are shorter or the sides are just curling in? Would need to see a photo to see what you did. Send to missed.stitches@yahoo.com
