Flower Garden Hot Pads

Designed and woven by Malynda Allen

Using the Wolf Pup LT

I love overshot patterned doubleweave because I can make beautiful patterns with a plain weave surface on a four-shaft loom. Doubleweave creates two layers of fabric, and I chose a heavy cotton yarn, so these hot pads are naturally thick enough to protect your hands and surfaces from pans straight from the oven or stove.

Materials & Equipment

  • 3/2 perle cotton in one dark and one light color, 550 yards each
  • Wolf Pup LT or any 4-shaft loom with at least 10″ weaving width
  • 12 dent reed
  • two shuttles and bobbins
  • sewing needle and thread to match the yarn
  • sewing machine (optional but recommended)
