Reclaimed Heart Hotpad

Posted on February 11, 2011

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I crocheted this heart hotpad from reclaimed yarn. I scored a free cotton/ramie red vest from my local thrift store. It had a hole in it and they had it in their free area so I gladly took it home and unraveled it. It yielded 3 nice balls of red yarn.

I used Rachel’s free sweetheart Valentine heart pattern over at Crochet Spot to create my hotpad. I followed the posted pattern but added an extra round of single crochet by repeating round 4 twice. I crocheted two red hearts and then put them back to back for a double layered heart hotpad. I finished off my hotpad by working a round of single crochet around and through the double layers with a contrasting white cotton yarn. I then worked the final round as outlined in the pattern to create the scalloped edging.

Wishing everyone a wonderful Valentine’s Day and as always happy crafting!

    Nice score! The thrift stores in my area are all fairly nice and therefore don’t have a lot of stuff that’s free or even super cheap but I’ve heard a lot of people are getting great reclaimed yarn this way.

    I love the recycled heart. Recycling yarn is one of my favorite ways to recycle.
