Ladies and Gentlemen!
You’ve heard of the Amazing Kreskin?
Well, prepare to be entertained by the Not-Quite-As-Amazing Crystal!
For my first trick . . .
I will begin with a crocheted yarn ring!
Next, I make 5 more, overlap them, weave a strip through the centers to hold them in place, and then crochet around the outer edges in contrasting colors.
(You’ll notice I have nothing up my sleeve!! )
And now, I wave my magic crochet hook and Presto! Change-o!
A vintage-style trivet/hot pad!!!
Pretty cool. Don’t you agree?
I think it looks like a Celtic knot, or maybe a brain teaser puzzle?!?
I used left-over yarn for this. It was a delight to make – very easy and very fast! I must get some yarn in my kitchen colors and make a couple more.

I’d love to hear your thoughts!
