Me picking out a 6-pack of beer yesterday: Inspecting the cans carefully to see which one has round-looking plastic rings. Then, looking at the graphics on the can to see which one has the most interesting design on it so I can make something cool out of it. I was hoping for a bold tasting beer so I could use it to make a tastier beer bread, but the 12-oz can choices were limited.

But, I've finally got the plastic rings I need to make these!

The choices you make today determine the choices you will have tomorrow.

This is so clever, it looks really complex, but your tutorial is so good it makes it look really simple.  I will have a go at making one.  It's also good you use the plastic soda bottle rings - these can be so harmful to wildlife if thrown away, so this is great all around.  Well done you - and thanks for sharing.

Thank you for posting this. I was given one of these as a gift 7 years ago and it is starting to wear out. I love this trivet and wanted a replacement. Now I can make one!

My mom and I made these about 20 years ago! I love them and they are very sturdy. My mom and I both still have ours! We stopped making them for awhile when we couldn't find the 6 packs with the rings! Way to go!

My mom made these as Christmas presents a couple of decades ago.  When she did she used canning jar gaskets for the rings.  The gaskets are heat resistant because they have to hold up against boiling temperatures long enough to be sterilized.  Look by the canning supplies for the Ball brand.

My first afghan included interwoven circles. I know with mine, it was a set of four and I didn't even need the inserts, although they keep the shape a bit better than mine do now. Smiley
