This original crochet pattern design in US crochet terms may not be distributed or sold as your own, but feel free to sell a finished pad made from this pattern!

level: intermediate

skills: know how to ch (chain), sl st (slip stitch), sc (single crochet), sc dec (sc decrease = insert hook, yarn over, pull back through leaving two loops on hook, insert hook into next st, yarn over, pull back through leaving three loops on hook, yarn over, pull through all three loops; 1 sc dec made)

hook: F/3.75mm

yarn: Lily Sugar 'n Cream 100% cotton in 22 colors

additional materials: 0.5"/13mm wide button

size: pictured pad measures 9"/23cm long x 3"/7.5cm wide (6"/10.5cm wide at wings), & is 2 or 3 layers thick

To waterproof: since this crochet pad is intentionally made with two layers stitched together at the edges, it can optionally hold an insert between them if desired; popular choices for waterproof inserts for handmade pads are to cut either a shower curtain liner or a vinyl waterproof table cloth to size, which for this pattern would be ~2.5" x 8.5".

As a crocheter for 20+ years now & a former professional proofreader, you can crochet this with the confidence that it has been gone over with a fine-tooth comb.

Feel free to contact me with pattern-related questions at any time, & I’ll typically get back to you within 24 hours.

This is a unique idea, so I wanted to give it a try. It's a great pattern and the liner I crocheted turned out to be softer than I expected, but it was just too thick to be comfortable for me. If you try out this pattern, I recommend using a soft, but very thin yarn. Quality pattern, though.

Love love love!! I was a little intimidated because it was a more advanced pattern even though I started about a month ago so I made it a bit easier on myself by not switching out the colors and just making the separate colors difference pieces then stitching after. Followed the pattern for the face and body and it’s so cute 🥺
