Works up in less than an hour and features two sides of completely different textures. This pattern is perfect for stash-busting all your cotton skeins.
The pattern is rated Easy in pattern difficulty and uses worsted weight (#4) cotton yarn.
DebbieAnn Hot Pad Crochet Pattern
2 skeins of 100% cotton worsted weight yarn (150 yards: I
used about 60 yards of Sugar’N Cream)
H/8 5.00mm hook
Ch = chain
St = stitch
Yo = yarn over
Sc = single crochet
BLO = back loop only
Thermal Stitch: Insert hook into back loop of designated stitch and into
the back loop of the previous row, yo, bring up a loop, yo, and draw through
two loops on hook.
NOTE: the beginning chain of each round does not count as the first stitch. The potholder sides are worked in rows. The use of different cotton yarn brands may alter the finished size of the potholder. When the potholder is finished, you will need to give it a good stretch as it loosens and even out the edges.
Easy to Intermediate
7″ x 7″ square
Hot Pad Side (Make 2):
Row 1: sc in second ch from hook and in each stitch across,
ch 1 turn (26)
Row 2: sc in BLO in next 2 sts, sc in next 2 sts repeat
across, ending with sc 2 in BLO of last 2 sts, ch 1 turn (26)
Row 3: thermal st in next 2 sts, sc in next 2 sts repeat
across, ending with thermal st in last 2 sts, ch 1 turn (26)
Row 4-31: repeat rows 2-3, ending with row 3 (26)
Row 32: sc in each st across (26)
Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing and weaving in ends.
Place both sides on top of the other (one side with the ribbed texture facing outward and the second
side with the smooth face). Whipstitch around both squares together, making sure there are no holes.
Fasten off and weave in ends!
And that’s it! You now have your own DebbieAnn Hot Pad!
