Retro Ring Trivet
Retro Canning Jar Ring Trivet (without the canning jar rings)

Many may recognize this as your Grand-mother's f avorite trivet. Canning Jar Ring Trivets were very popular in the 40's through the early 60's I believe the reason the old Canning Jar Ring pattern dropped out of popularity was because of the decline in home canning thereby reducing the availability of canning jar rings. For a while the pattern struggled to stay alive with the substitution of plastic 6-pack rings but now they are also a thing f rom a dif f erent era. In remembrance of this old pattern my trivet is made without the use of canning jar or plastic 6-pack rings. T his trivet can be made in many sizes depending on the number of rings used. I make two sizes, Small which uses 6 rings and Medium which uses 8 or 9 rings. (9 so I can use 3 colors of rings) T his pattern is written f or one with 6 rings but the pattern is basically the same f or any size. T he number of rings and the number of stitches on the connection chain are the only dif f erence. T he larger trivet does leave a larger hole in the center which I do not like so I also added instruction on how to work a center insert to close that hole. T his pattern works up quickly and is another amazing stash-buster which is always a f avorite of mine.
