In the summer months I tend to crochet more with cotton. I like to work with smaller, quicker projects while it’s hot outside, and this new trivet crochet pattern is the perfect quick, cotton yarn project!
Trivet Crochet pattern
I tend to stick with useful crochet items, especially when crocheting with cotton. Whether you call this a hot pad or a trivet, this free pattern is the latest in a series of useful crochet for the kitchen. Here are some other fun, useful patterns using cotton:
Place first stitch of each row in same as turning. (chain does not count as a stitch)
Puff stitch = hdc3tog = yarn over, insert hook into st, pull up a loop. Do this THREE times total, then yarn over and pull through all loops on hook.
Crossed double crochet (in border) – tutorial here.
Approximately 8″ square
Row 1: Ch-27, dc in 3rd ch from hook. Dc in next 3 chs. * ch-2, puff st in next ch, sk-3 chs, puff st in next ch, ch-2 * dc in each of next 7 sts, repeat between * * one more time. Dc in last 4 chs.
Row 2: Ch-2, turn, dc in first 3 sts, * bpdc around next dc, ch-2, puff stitch in each of next 2 ch-sps, ch-2, bpdc around next dc * dc in next 5 sts, repeat between * * one more time. Dc in last 3 sts.
Row 3: Ch-2, turn, dc in first 3 sts, * fpdc around next dc, ch-2, puff stitch in each of next 2 ch-sps, ch-2, fpdc around next dc * dc in next 5 sts, repeat between * * one more time. Dc in last 3 sts.
Rows 4 – 11: repeat rows 2 & 3 four times
Row 12: repeat row 2. Do not fasten off.
Row 1: Ch-1, turn, sc in each st around, placing 3sc in each corner.
Row 2: Ch-2, * sk next st, dc in next. Dc in skipped st. * repeat around, placing 3dc in each corner.
*if you have one extra stitch before hitting the corner (instead of zero or two), simply do one dc instead of crossed double crochet.
Row 3: Ch-1, sc in each st around, placing 3sc in each corner. Fasten off and weave in all ends.
I hope you love your NEW trivet!
