This is for those moments when you need to briefly adjust the position of a hot cast-iron skillet while it’s on the stovetop. This will fit a 10” skillet.
Stove top use only. Definitely don’t put this in your oven.

4”x4” — 13 sc and 14 rows
When working in the round I “slip stitch to join” by placing my hook through the backside of the 1st stitch of the working row. I then pull the working loop through the stitches so that it comes up along the wrong side of the piece. This puts the bulkiness of joining on the wrong side.
Row 1: 8 sc in center of circle, sl st in first sc to join, ch 1, turn (8 sts)
Row 2: 2 csc in each stitch around, sl st in first sc to join, ch 1, turn (16 sts)
Row 3: Repeat row 2
Row 4: 1 csc in the next 3 sts, csc2tog, 1 csc in the next 6 sts, csc2tog, 1 csc in next 3 sts (14 sts)
Rows 5-6: 1 csc in each stitch around (14 sts)
Note: Weave in your starting tail here.
Row 7: 1 csc in the next 3 sts, csc2tog, 1 csc in the next 4 sts, csc2tog, 1 csc in next 3 sts (12 sts)
Rows 8-20: (If you’re doing the colorwork begin the chart here. This’ll be row 1 on the chart) 1 csc in each st around
Below is the chart I used. I would love to see what you come up with if you choose to experiment with your own design!
