Circular Netting – Class Projects

So you will have plenty of practice, there are patterns for seven different types of projects in this class: bags, bookmarks, coasters, dishcloths, a doily, hot pad, and a snood.

Circular Net Bags

These string bags start at the bottom of the bag with a grommet and work to the top, finishing with the handles. In this class the bags will have either tied or drawstring handles.

Circular Net Bookmarks

These bookmarks start in the center of the circular top. Once the small circle is finished, the bottom of the bookmark is completed using diamond mesh netting.

Circular Net Hot Pads

It is easy to confuse hot pads with pot holders.

A hot pad protects the surface under it from hot pans. It also works well for protecting surfaces from cups holding hot drinks.

A pot holder protects hands when they need to carry hot pots and pans.

These are NOT pot holders.
