The Not So Vintage Crochet Hot Pad Pattern is an extra thick crochet hot pad with a textured front and solid back.
The design is worked as two separate pieces that are then crocheted together. The front side is worked in a very thick fabric that is created using a spiked puff stitch. The puff stitch is a thick stitch on it’s own and is even more thick and dense when worked as a spike stitch.

Crochet Hot Pads are a useful item to have around your home! You will want to work this pattern in a 100% cotton yarn as it is the most durable when it comes to heat (still remember to be careful when using them in order to avoid burns!). Cotton comes in a variety of colours which also works well with this stitch pattern! The texture and stitches really stand out when worked in multiple colours as I have done here.
The Not So Vintage Hot Pad would be a great addition to your own kitchen! They also make great gifts and items to sell at craft fairs. If you are looking for a matching washcloth, I will have one available for you by the end of the week. It would make such a great gift set.
For the Not so Vintage Hot Pad, I will be working with three colours of a worsted weight 100% cotton yarn. In the photos and in the video tutorial I am using the Pima Cotton Yarn by Lion Brand Yarn. It is super soft and 100% cotton. You will only need one partial ball of each to complete this pattern.
For this pattern you will also need a 5 mm crochet hook. In the video tutorial below I will be using a Birchwood Hook by Rowan Yarns.
This pattern will be written out in full below followed by a free video tutorial. The pattern is free to follow on my site and will always be free! If, however, you would like a printable copy, you may purchase one from my Etsy and Ravelry Shops linked below:
