One of my favorite things about winter is the warm, delicious food. This is the time when potholders and hot pads really come in handy. And there’s no reason they shouldn’t liven up the table too! For many decades people have been using cotton yarn to make their tables pretty, and to express themselves with crochet. Indeed, they’re a practical work of art! Here are 10 beautiful and free crochet potholders and hot pad patterns to make, use, and admire!

The Round Jacob’s Ladder Baby Blanket by Maxine Gonzer seems to be an almost identical (albeit much larger) pattern! Just stop at the size desired. Hope that helps, and I’m sorry for the inconvenience!

Hope you don’t mind that I snuck a Moogly pattern in there at the end… I use and enjoy it every day, so I couldn’t resist! I’ve also made the Crochet Flower Hot Pad (#5). That one was a gift, which points out another great thing about crochet potholders and hot pads – they make great presents! Perfect for anyone who cooks, or even as just a pretty thing to put under a potted plant, they’re a fantastic housewarming or any time gift. Why not make one today?
