This is so cute. I love coffee and crochet also, so this is perfect for my home. I would definitely use cotton yarn, so I would be able to use the potholder. To leave it with acrylic yarn would be pointless, in my opinion. You could also make this smaller and use it for a coffee cup holder.

I love this pattern. Just a note for anyone that is a beginner to crochet is to always use cotton yarns for anything that you make for your kitchen or dining room. This will almost assuredly keep burns away from your hands and fingers. A coffee cup coffee cup rug is such a cute idea.

I dont know that Ive seen cotton in that dark of a shade, but you could easily work the cup part in any color youd like and then the coffee part in a lighter brown (as in caf au lait or tea). I would also do as the designer suggests and use two stitched together for use as a potholder or trivet. Cotton is definitely recommended in these cases, but acrylic would work just fine if youre only interested in dcor.

This is cute. I am curious as to why the pattern page tells us that this pattern is to be used for decorative purposes only. What is the whole point? She then goes on to say that we should use a cotton yarn if we actually plan on using them to transport hot dishes. Okay, I can do that- but why make them in a worsted weight yarn to begin with?

Hi princess, Acrylic yarn doesn't do well with heat, which defeats the purpose of actually using these as hot pads since acrylic is plastic and could melt. Cotton will stand up to the heat of whatever you're placing on it. :) I hope that helps! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet
