Popcorn Stitch Crochet Round Hot Pad

Here is a free pattern for a crochet round hot pad. It’s just what you need to protect for your table tops from hot dishes. For extra protection, line the back with a heat resistant cotton material or with another layer of solid crochet stitches.

Not only can you use this as a hot pad, but it would also work great as a pot holder.

The pattern can be worked up in several hours.

The Yarn

I used Bernat Handicrafter cotton yarn, but any similar cotton yarn, like Lily Sugar ‘N’ Cream, will work just as well. And if you are not planning on using this in the kitchen then you could also use a synthetic material if you like.

Someone suggested to use a cotton thread and I couldn’t resist to make one. It turned out perfect and now I’ll have to make a few more to use as coasters…cause you can never have too many of those around the house. An image of the coaster/doily is posted below the pattern.

About the Pattern

I used the popcorn stitch in order to add more padding. The popcorns are a bit crowded in the second round, but they help to open up the center for a pretty design.

Also, the hot pad begins to ruffle up quite a bit in the fifth round, but the ruffles are easy to block out after it is completed. I left some of the ruffles in mine and I think they add a nice touch. But if you wanted to you could block them all out.

Note

To Block:

  • Dampen the hot pad and lay it flat to dry. You will have to stretch it out a bit, but not too far in order for it to retain the wavy effect. However, you can eliminate the waves if you like.

Coaster/Doily

  • Now as promised, here is the image of the Coaster/Doily. I used a size 10 crochet thread and a 7/1.65MM steel hook. The finished project measures just under 4 inches across and can be used as a coaster or as a small doily.
