Crochet Simple Square Hot Pad

Posted: March 6, 2020 by admin

Welcome to the Crochet Simple Square Hot Pad pattern. This is one of my favorite quick, beginner-friendly patterns. I made this pattern when I first started crocheting and have used it over and over through the years. It’s lasts forever and looks great and also makes a great gift. I like to use ombre yarn for this pattern but it also looks great in a solid yarn.

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
