Bacon and Eggs Skillet Trivet {crochet pattern}


I just love whimsical potholders and trivets.  I think they're fun to bring out on the holidays and equally fun to hang on your wall and have around as a conversation piece.  I made this one two years ago and gave it away as a Christmas present.  This year, I'm making it again, but I'm also sharing it here!  

Notes:  In R1 (on the skillet pieces and egg), if you do your stitches over the tail from the beginning, you will be able to pull on the tail and eliminate the hole in the center.

R2: ch 3, 2 dc in each dc, join with sl st to top of ch 3 (24 st)

Bacon:
mine is worked in two scrap shades of brown I had laying around :) 
A= Dark Brown
B= Light Brown

With both A and B, chain 17
R1: dc in 3rd ch from hook and next 14 ch, ch1, turn (15 dc)
R2: sc in next 14 dc, drop color A, ch 1 (15 sc)
R3: with color B, sc in next 14 sc, FO (15 sc)

Thread the tail from the dropped color A in the second row and baste across the middle row, pull taut and then loosen a little to make it look rippled, like bacon.

Note: if you prefer more "meat in your meal" you can make a second piece of bacon to add to your skillet. :)

Finishing up:

Using the tails you left behind, sew yolk to egg.  
Choose your placement of egg and bacon on one skillet piece and sew around the edges to attach to skillet.  

Last, lay your decorated skillet over top of the undecorated half and join yarn on the edge of the ch6 at the top of the skillet handle.  Sc 8 times on ch 6 space, and then sc all the way around working in loops from both skillet sides.  When you've worked all the way around, sl st in top of the first chain and FO, weaving in any remaining ends.
