Here is a free crochet pattern for a matching hotpad and coaster set. The set works up quick and easy and is perfect for protecting your kitchen table. The only thing with the hotpad is that it’s lacy, so you might want to line the back of it in order to prevent the heat from reaching the table.
The coaster also works great as a kitchen or face scrubbie. Hope you enjoy these free patterns.
