Rolling River Trivet

Years ago yarn companies published a lot of Bottle Cap Trivet crochet patterns.  Luckily we are able to create an archive of vintage crochet patterns here on this site.  Not only are we archiving the patterns but we are updating the patterns to make them more user friendly.  Our updated patterns are much easier to follow than the originals.  With the updated patterns your chance of success, completion and relaxation are much higher.

    The bottle caps can be found online by searching “bottle caps”. You could also ask friends to collect them for you or ask a local bar to empty their bottle opener cap container.

    I love all your bottle cap trivets. This is 2nd. time writing to ask you to explain how to sew the bottle caps together. I cannot tell by looking at the picture as to how to sew them together once I have them made and in proper form. Am i missing something or just not seeing correctly? Please explain soon because I have so many bottle caps crocheted and want to give them as chrismas presents but canot figure out how to sew them together. thanks in advance for your quick response.
