Crochet Simple Hot Pad

Posted: March 6, 2020 by admin

Welcome to the Crochet Simple Hot Pad pattern. I use crochet for the kitchen a lot and one of my favorite things to make is hot pads. They quick to make, convenient to use, and best of all I can choose my own colors. The Simple Hot Pad is a pattern I’ve been using for years. I like to use two strands of cotton yarn because it makes it easy to place on the counter and place something hot on top of it. Please only use 100% cotton because synthetic fibers will melt and nobody wants that to happen!  I would love to see what colors you choose!

This pattern is in the Simple Kitchen E-book and all will be released as free patterns however you can find them all in one convenient PDF. Here are the patterns that are included:

Note: I’ll update the links as blog posts are created for each of them
