How-to: woven circles trivet
I found the gold and pink crocheted trivet pictured below at the thrift store this weekend, and it was a total "I can make that" moment. The structure of the circles is made from plastic rings cut from one of those pieces that holds together a six-pack of soda. The hardest part will be in finding plastic rings that are actually circle. The sodas that were in my fridge (a Pepsi product) had "rings" that were more of an oval, almost D-like shape. Luckily I had a rounded version laying around, though I have no idea what kind of soda it came from. I am going to have to go to the 7-Eleven for research. What you need: Worsted weight cotton yarn in colors that you like. Round six-pack rings, trimmed apart into circles. Size H (5.0 mm) crochet hook Begin by attaching your yarn with a slip stitch to a ring. If 45 dc seem to be too many or too few to fill up your ring, you can adjust accordingly! Now lay them out like this with each ring overlapping the next: You're ready to make the center ring.
