CROCHET PATTERN - Scrappy Circles Hot Pad

Use up some of your cotton scraps to make this easy, thick hot pad! The ruffles keep your hot pans safely away from your counters.
It will also work very well as a dishcloth or face scrubber. My daughter thinks it looks like a nice dollhouse rug!

Happy Crocheting! :)
