This blog post is all about how to crochet a circle hot pad pattern.
I'm back with another free, easy and beginner friendly crochet pattern for you! This time I will show you how to crochet your very own hot pad. This crochet hot pad will add a bit of modern farmhouse style decor to your kitchen and it will have your family and friends asking for one of their own. Luckily for you, it uses super bulky yarn and is simple and quick to make...so you can crochet a whole bunch of hot pads as gifts!
A note about the yarn:
If you are planning on using this trivet with high heat (grabbing a pan, placing hot pans on it) then it is recommended to use 100% wool or 100% cotton yarn. These yarns handle heat the best. If you do use a yarn mixed with acrylic, take caution when using with heat. Acrylic yarn may melt when in contact with extreme heat.
I used this yarn because it is 100% wool and thick enough to handle hot pans. It comes in 24 colors so you can pick whichever color matches your home the best!
- 1 skein of super bulky weight yarn (I used We Crochet Tuff Puff in the color "White")/44 yards to make 1 trivet
- Size P Crochet Hook (11.5mm)
- Yarn Needle
- 9" circle trivet
- Ch -- Chain
- Blo -- Back Loop Only
- Hhdc -- Herringbone Half Double Crochet
- Inc -- Make 2 HHDC in the same stitch
- Sl st -- Slip Stitch
- * -- Repeat
- Not important for this project. My finished trivet came out to be 9".
- If yours is coming out too small, try using a bigger hook size.
- Do not join at the end of a round. Rounds are worked in a continuous spiral.
- Try to crochet these stitches loosely. If you make the hhdc too tight, your trivet might curl up on you.
- Every stitch is worked into the blo.
How to Make the Herringbone Half Double Crochet Stitch
Yarn over. Put hook through the stitch and draw up a loop (3 loops on your hook). Pull the first loop straight through the second loop.
You will have 2 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through the last 2 loops.
*Note: From here on out, work every stitch into the blo (even if not specified).
Round 2: INC into the blo of the first stitch you made (place a stitch marker into the first stitch of this increase). INC into the blo of the next stitch and into every stitch around. (12 HHDC)
Round 3: *INC into the next 2 stitches, HHDC into the next stitch,* around. (20 HHDC)
Round 4: *INC into the next 2 stitches, HHDC into the next 2 stitches,* around. (30 HHDC)
Round 5: *INC into the next 2 stitches, HHDC into the next 3 stitches,* around. (42 HHDC)
Round 6: HHDC into the first stitch of the round and into every stitch around. (HHDC) Sl st to the first stitch of the round.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
