I've made a few of these hot pads myself using the same pattern. I haven't managed to make a square yet. A lady I used to work with gave these with her Christmas cards, and I always thought they were the neatest things ever. Annie's Attic did a variation of this pattern called a magic square.


Thanks Bron! I can see where you are coming from on the copyright issue! It is a touchy one. Well, I won't be making any of these for $, so even if it is copyrighted, I won't be in violation :)


Oh good! Myria's pot holders are getting pretty ratty looking and these look like just the thing! Gosh - I'll be getting through all that cotton in no time now what with washcloths, dish towels *and* hot pads :)

Time to go looking for more maybe?

Yeah, like I need an excuse. Heheh...


With patterns, if the copyright states that items can be sold for profit from the finished item, it's okay to sell it.

I believe patterns before 1974 are free rein on copyright issues and any copyright after that is the lifetime of the copyright holder plus 20 years.

Each copyright is different and for my patterns, I have that you can sell the finished items for a profit.


Hooray for gratuitous sleepy corgi pictures!


Thanks for the pattern and for sharing the links Bron. The Jo Sharp Knit2 book has a lacey circular heatpad/pot holder thingy in it too. Hope the following link works for you.


Linda - I think they are just about the perfect hotpad. Easy to make and attractive. :) That's why a copyright on them seemed a little silly to me.

Jillian - I swear, there's nothing new under the sun, so copyrighting really IS a touchy issue!

Robbyn - It's ALWAYS time to get more dish cotton. hehehe And they've got so many different colors out now from the last time I went nuts with this stuff!

Deneen - Unfortunately, there are so many different copyrights out there on the same pattern, I don't think anyone's allowed to do anything with it! LOL That's where things get too silly for me. Thanks for the info on "lifetime + 20" I knew it was some really long amount of time. :)

Cara - Gotta love those Corgi pics!

Terri - I love that! Now I need to see if I love enough of the other patterns to warrant getting the book! Thanks for enabling. ::grin::


Just wanna thank you for this amazing information. This is kind of a thing I was looking for
