Hotpad Instructions:
After fussing over this for too long.... I decided to keep it simple.

For the sample I used the same instructions as the Coaster, but used 2 strands of worsted weight yarn, and a  J sized hook.  This made a small hot pad 6.5 inches long and 5 inches wide.

You could use 3 strands of yarn and a K sized hook to make the hot pad larger.
