Pat­tern Notes

Bor­ders are worked as you go. They are 4 stitches wide on the hot pad and 2 stitches wide on the coast­ers.

The hot pad bor­ders are worked in color A us­ing sep­a­rate sources of yarn— do not carry yarn that is not in use across the back. If de­sired, wind A on 2 yarn bob­bins or make 2 but­ter­flies. At each color change, bring the new color from below the color just used and twist them to­gether to pre­vent holes.
