Free Pattern: Too Hot Pot Holders

I needed some new pot holders and, if you're like me these days, it's hard to justify buying something you know you can make.
2 balls of Sugar'n Cream Cotton Yarn (2.5 ounces each)--I had some leftover after making 2 potholders.
J Hook

Holding two strands of yarn together, chain 6. Join with a sl st to form a ring.
(I hate weaving in the ends so from this point forward, crochet over your yarn tail to avoid this step)

Work 12 hdc into ring. sl st to first hdc, ch 1 and turn.

R1: hdc in next two stitches; 3 hdc in next stitch; hdc in next two stitches. ch 1 and turn.

R2: hdc in next three stitches; 3 hdc in next stitch; hdc in next three stitches. ch 1 and turn.

R3: hdc in next four stitches; 3 hdc in next stitch; hdc in next four stitches. ch 1 and turn.

R4: hdc in next five stitches; 3 hdc in next stitch; hdc in next five stitches. ch 1 and turn.

Repeat this pattern of adding one hdc on either side of the 3-hdc corner for a total of 17 Rounds.

You should end with hdc in 16 stitches, 3 hdc in next stitch, hdc in next 16 stitches. Fasten off and weave in end.

I find that with a ch 1 instead of ch 2, you don't have to sc around the edges for a finished look.
Let me know how it works out!

Fabulous pattern! I made some for my mother for Christmas. She loved them! I got a candy cane stripe feel by using one strand of red with one strand of white.
