Trivet or Potholder (437 and 11)

My sister in law wanted another potholder/trivet. The first 2 that I made for her are here. I used some of the yarn from this project  and some purple cotton yarn (Premier Home Passionfruit color 38-17). One side (the purple side) was made following stitch pattern 437 and the other (the multi-colored side) was with stitch pattern 11. I used an i-hook for this pattern.

Purple side:

This side uses a front post 3-dc cluster which, for this pattern, is made like this : yo, insert hook in next st, draw yarn through the stitch, yo, draw yarn through 2 loops on the hook [you’ve made 1/2 of a dc], yo, insert the hook around the back of the post of the designated stitch (like a FP -dc), yo, draw through 2 loops on the hook [like 1/2 of dc again], yo, insert hook in the next st, yo, draw through 2 loops, [you’ve made 1/2 of a dc] yo draw through 4 loops.

Chain 26

Row 1: ch1, sc in 1st st, sc across (25 st)

Row 2: ch 5 (serves as dc ch2), skip 3 st, * dc, ch 2, skip 2 st, repeat from * ending with dc.

Row 3: ch 5 (serves as dc ch2), * work 3dc cluster across the next ch2-dc-ch2 space, ch 2, repeat from * across, the last sts will be a dc in the turning chain from prior row.

Row 4: ch 5 (serves as dc ch2), skip ch 2 space, *dc in the 3 dc cluster, ch 2, repeat from * ending with dc.

Repeat rows 3 and 4 four more times.

Row 13: ch 1, sc in each st and 2 sc in each 2-ch space (25 stitched)

Do not fasten off,

Here is how this side looks:

Now to move on to the other part of this piece.

Multi-colored side:

To my surprise, I either never formally made anything with this stitch pattern or I did not record it properly. This pattern (number 11) is just a series of double crotchets.

Row 1: ch1, sc in 1st st, sc across (25 st)

Row 2: ch 2 (serves as dc), skip 1st st, dc across (25 st)

Row 3-12: Repeat row 2 .

Row 13: ch 1, sc across.

Do not fasten off.

Here is the other side:

Hopefully the two sides will line up once I attach them.

Attaching the two sides:

Line up the two pieces so that the last stitches on each side are on diametric opposites to each other. Sc across two sides with one color and then sc across the other two sides with the other color. Be sure to include 3 st in each corner. I tried to do put 2 sc in the corner of the yarn I was ending and then 1 in the color I was starting.

Fasten off and weave in the ends.

Here is one side of the finished product.
