This free crochet pattern is especially wonderful and timely for the cold winter months!  Hot packs are great to have on hand and practical, especially one this cute. This crochet pattern works up quick and easy, and it's fun to make.  The rice pack would make a sweet and thoughtful stocking stuffer, office gift exchange present, or "heart-warming" gift for a special friend.  (This would be especially welcome and nice for an elderly person to have near to use.)

Difficulty: Easy

Materials: This hot pack is made with Lilly's Sugar n' Cream cotton yarn, size G Hook, half double crochet, rice, and a knee high nylon.

Instructions: Chain 18, hdc in 3rd chain from hook, hdc across, (15)

Row 2 and on: Ch 2, turn , hdc across. (15)

Put Together: Once it is exactly twice as long as it's desired length (an even number of rows), without finishing off, fold in half with wrong sides together, ch1, and begin stitching both sides together with single crochet. (Be sure to sc the folded edge as well, to ensure continuity of style.) To turn corners, Sc 3 in each corner stitch. Before stitching all the way around, place Rice Pack inside, and continue to sc around remaining edges. Join w/ slip stitch to top of 1st sc.
