Starting with the first Dc on each side of the Ch2 of the shell, Sew each Dc and Ch1 Together across to corner. You can sew through both loops or through the backloops only. You will need an additional 30 Inch piece to sew the last part of the triangle together and for making the hanging loop. When done sewing all sides together make a Chain loop of 11 with a smaller size hook ("F" is usually good). Weave in the final end and you're hot pad is ready to use.

I made up your pattern today and it has turned out cute, of course. Actually, I didn't follow the pattern words. It is easier for me to look at photos and yours are very clear. Thanks for sharing!
