Note: It is best to use cotton yarn that is not mercerized. As you can see in the video tutorial, mercerized cotton does not look good with this pattern. I suggest you to use the regular cotton yarn.

How to customize the hot pad pattern
Customizing the hot pad to match your personal style is so easy. By changing the colors, you will have a different style of hot pad. You can even add a wooden ring instead of a chain loop as a hanger for a more rustic vibe. Or you can add leather as a hanging loop.
At the end, it is your hot pad, and you can customize it to your favourite colors.
