Crocheted Hot Pad/Potholder - It's double thick!

Here's a classic crochet design that has been around for generations. Perhaps you remember these in your mother's kitchen growing up, or maybe you even have one or two in your own kitchen. It's no wonder, because these crocheted hot pads or pot holders are double thick, 100% cotton, can be made in any color or color combination, and they just feel good!


Just look at all that crocheted cotton yumminess!


It takes exactly one 2 ounce ball of cotton, 37 chain stitches and about 1300 (give or take a few) single crochet stitches to make one of these hot pads.


Don't you just love it?


And look how thick it is!


It even has a loop so you can hang it near your stove.


Mmmm mmmmm good!



Would you like to make one for yourself? I'll be sharing the pattern and a video tutorial in the next day or so, as long as blogger behaves and lets me publish my video!

But if you like these hot pads and don't feel like making them for yourself, check out my Etsy shop. I'll be adding a handful of these great hot pads in several different colors later today. I'm also happy to make them for you in the color of your choice. Just zip me an email and let me know what you have in mind.

Are you planning a kitchen bridal shower for a friend or relative? One of these 100% cotton hot pads wrapped around a nice wooden spoon and tied with a ribbon would make a lovely party favor for each of your guests. This would also make a nice housewarming gift for a first-time homeowner or for a college student moving away from home for the first time.

Happy Stitching!

  • Mary Grace- this is a beautiful pattern for hotpads. I am about 1/2 done making mine from your pattern and noticed the part where I have the 37 chain stiches in the beginning with single crochet in every opening is creating these big holes all the way across . What am I doing wrong?

  • Just wanted to say for years my Grand Mom has been making these as pot holders and hot pads then one day my Mom told her to make it bigger and in the process I make a 5 square by 7 square blanket trimmed each holder with a granny edging then put together with a slip stitch and ending is with granny crochet all around 2 times makes a full sized top for a full sized bed <3 <3

  • My mother gave me this pattern over 30 years ago. I must have made hundreds for my family and friends. You really need to warn the users of this product to never use if wet or damp. The heat goes through them and can burn you.
