CD ROM Honey Comb Trivet

Image of CD ROM Honey Comb Trivet Designed by Julie A. Bolduc

I know the idea of using a CDRom for a pattern is not my idea but I loved the idea so much that I decided I should design our own pattern for the Club. Hope you like this one. I did test it for durability against heat and I did place a boiling hot pot on it and let it sit there until the pot was cool and it stood up very well to the heat. I am not sure if I would trust a pot much higher than 350 degrees F. Though.

Materials Needed:
Southmaid8 Crochet Cotton or Size 3 Cotton.
Size E/4US or 3.5mm aluminum crochet hook
1 old CD or DVD ROM
Small Yarn Needle

Gauge: 6dc=1"
Yarn Thickness: 2mm
Finished Size: 5½"diameter
Skill Level: Intermediate

NOTE: This is done a little differently. I worked the back side first then put the cd over the wrong side of it centering the hole over the first round then worked on the front while the CD was on it. It is tricky to do but it can be done.
