Pretty hot pads

I have been in the mood to make pretty hot pads instead of always making the practical ones.  These hot pads can only be used to sit hot dishes on, not to take them from the oven as there are too many holes.  In the last few days here are some of the pretty hot pads I have made.  I keep thinking of new color combinations to use.

As you can see there are more star type hot pads than the others because the pattern is very easy and quick.  I used cotton yarn for these because I have learned that the acrylic yarn melts too easily.  It never used to but it does any more so I have begun using cotton yarn for all my pot holders and hot pads.
