Hexagon Trivet – protect your table in a pretty way!

I’m a fan of trivets. They keep my table safe and make me feel all grown up. You know, “I’m so awesome at adulting, I have pretty trivets for my hot homemade food!” With the Hexagon Trivet, you can use a variegated color, a solid color, or even a variety of solid colors. You could make it look like a flower! If you use a wool or cotton yarn you could even make potholders.

Please note: If made with the suggested yarn these will work as trivets, but are not suggested for use near fire.
