Dots


ByHaafner, dots, crochet, bobble stitch, hot pad, Cath Kidston teapot, white & colours


















This teapot was a present - many years ago - from a dear friend,
when she came to visit me from England.
Yesterday I felt it urgently needed a matching hot pad.
(Does that kind of urge sound familiar to you at all,
or should I better consult my doctor?)

I applied the dots after crocheting the white circle.
Each dot is a bobble stitch made of six dc (American terminology).

  3. Daar word ik nou helemaal vrolijk van.
    Ik heb gisteren een eenzame beker gekocht in de plaatselijke charity shop in hetzelfde patroon. Hoe kun je zoiets laten staan? En nu heb ik natuurlijk ook de drang om zo´n leuke hot pad te maken. :)

    1. Hihi, ja, dat klinkt alsof die eenzame beker dat wel nodig heeft, een beetje warmte... Het zijn soms net mensen. ;-)

    1. Thanks for your kind comment!
      I simply sew the dots to the circle, using both the begin & end thread from each dot, this ensures the dot will be thoroughly secured. Also, this enables you to reshape the dots if & where necessary. ;-)
      Good luck!

      I can really recommend going back to crocheting, it's very calming and rewarding - though addictive too...
      Happy crocheting!
