Reversible Hot Pad Pattern
Looking for something simple to crochet for the kitchen – either for Mother’s Day or as a quick gift you can work up easy-peasy? I’ve come up with a VERY simple hot pad to add some texture and color to your kitchen. Use worsted yarn for crocheting one or two (or several) hot pads. Substitute in cotton yarn to use as pot scrubbers or dish cloths. See how fun that is? Double duty!
Turn the hot pad over to the “wrong” side of your work for a slightly different (but still very cute) texture, or use the cotton version’s “wrong” side to scrub those dishes! Or just sit and admire your pretty little round creation. Enjoy!
Add this pattern to your Ravelry Queue.
Skill Level: Easy
Worsted yarn or cotton yarn
Hook size: I/5.50mm
CH = chain
SC = single crochet
DC = double crochet
JOIN = sl st to first dc of round
MR = magic ring (tutorial here)
PICOT = ch 3, sl st to first ch
RND = Round
SL ST = slip stitch
4 DC = 1" (length)
2 Rows of DC = 1" (height)
Start your first stitch of each round in the same space as your chain.
Join your round to the first DC, not your chain.
Chains do not count as stitches in this pattern.
Rnd 1: Magic Ring, 12 dc, join. (12)
Rnd 2: Ch 2, [2dc in each stitch] around, join. (24)
Rnd 3: Ch 1, [(sc,dc) in next stitch, sc, dc] around, join. (32)
Rnd 4: Ch 1, [(sc,dc) in next stitch, sc, dc] around, sc, dc, join. (42)
Rnd 6: Ch 1, [(sc,dc) in next stitch, sc, dc] around, join. (56)
Rnd 6: Ch 1, [(sc,dc) in next stitch, sc, dc, sc, dc] around, (sc,dc) in last stitch, join. (68)
Rnd 7: Ch 1, [(sc,dc) in next stitch, sc, dc, sc, dc, sc, dc] repeat 8x, (sc,dc) in next stitch, sc, dc, sc, dc, join. (78)
Rnd 8: Ch 15, sl st to 1st ch to form loop; [sl st 3, picot] around, join to 1st chain of loop.
Break yarn, weave ends.
You are all done!
