Free Crochet Pattern: Flower Trivet
Hi and hello. Here is a super-easy pattern for a trivet that I used to make. These come together really quickly and they make great housewarming gifts. Alternatively, you could make a bunch of these and stitch or crochet them together to make a table runner. Protect your table in style with this easy-peasy flower trivet!
Here are the terms you need to know: skip (sk), stitch (st), space (spc), chain (ch), slip stitch (sl st), single crochet (sc), half-double crochet (hdc), double crochet (dc), and treble (tr). You may also want to learn about invisible joins.

UPDATE 3/10/11: I see that the spectacular Craft Gossip linked here (Thanks!), and I just wanted to add the other link — the one for the garland that they show — here. You can also find the garland post under the “Patterns & Tutorials” tab at the top of this blog.
