Reinventing the Wheel
"Linked double crochet stitches give this pattern a dense, but still flexible texture. Made in a cotton yarn, it works well as a trivet, a washcloth, or a potholder. With only 7 rounds, it works up really quickly too! The pattern uses only 2 different stitches, and includes photos and instructions for both stitches. There is also a link to a full tutorial for the linked double crochet stitch. It doesn't use a lot of yarn, so is a great for using up scraps."
