The First Workbasket Project

I've finished crocheting a project form the oldest of the Workbasket magazines that I inherited. It's issue 2959 December 1948. The pattern is called Pan Holder.
I used some fingering weight wool that I bought on ebay a long time ago. It was all the black and white but I'd overdyed some of it purple because, well, that's what I do. I sewed a layer of heat-resistant batting in between the crocheted sides because the squares have little open spaces and I'd rather not hurt myself - and it makes it safer, in my head anyway, if I use it to put a pan on. I would hate to scar our table. I've tried to make the pattern into a PDF but it didn't work. Any assistance in that would be wonderful! The next issue is 2965 June 1949. Some pages are missing from the center, but there are a couple of patterns that are interesting. I'll see what's in the stash that will work. See y'all next time!
