For Joy Lynn. To get the pattern you wanted for the bottle cap triviets, just scroll down from under the pictures and click on Crochet Beer Caps Hot Pad in the green print, and the pattern will come up. They are easy to crochet, and yes they are sewn together in rows, and then the rows are sewn together on the backside. I crochet a loop at the top so one can hang them on the wall until needed for use. The directions just say to sew together, but I found one pattern that said to sew them together by sewing just 5 stitches of each cap together. So that is what I do.

where do i find the pattern for the crochet covered bottle caps shown? looks like they are sewn together to make hot pads.
