Crochet Flower Starburst Hot Pad (Free Pattern)

Crafts March 12, 2017

Crochet Flower Starburst Hot Pad Free Patterns

You can always use one more hot pad in the kitchen. Older pads are burned, singed, or have questionable spots on them. Newer ones may not be to your taste but you just picked them up to have a couple more around when you need them. But what if you could make your own unique hot pads that would never be mistaken for someone else’s at the next potluck, BBQ, or reunion?

This free crochet hot pad pattern from Loretta Schepp hits all the right points. It produces unique, beautiful, cost-effective, and simple hot pads you can tailor to your own liking by choosing various colors, textures, and ways to join the motifs together.

With plenty of photo inspiration on her Ravelry account, and a free video tutorial from Anel Gomez, this free pattern is one you’ll have put together in no time flat. The pattern calls for the following items: 1 1/2 oz. of 4-ply worsted yarn (variegated or whatever color you choose) for Color A, and 1/2 oz. of 4-ply worsted yarn for Color B (the pattern suggests using a solid color for this one), a “G” size crochet hook, and a tapestry needle.

Stitches you’ll need to know include chain (ch), slip stitch (sl st), single crochet (sc), and treble crochet (tc).

You’ll want to crochet a little beforehand to make sure the gauge is correct. Two lines of crochet should measure 2 inches. The finished product will measure 8 inches in diameter, but of course you can tweak the pattern to make it a 6 inch or a 10 inch if you need a different size.

The starburst effect is created by crocheting five individual motifs and joining them together.

Once you’ve created one or two of these, it’s easy to mix and match with colors to create your own look for these beauties. You can combine jewel tones, natural colors, pastel hues, and more in order to personalize your hot pads, or make sets for your family and friends. You can also add a loop onto them for easy storage on a rack or for display purposes.

If you’d like to try making one of these Starburst Hot Pads, you can find information at DIY How-To and Loretta Schepp’s Ravelry page. You can find the pattern at Crochet Memories, and if you want to watch the instructional video, you can find it at Anel Gomez’s YouTube channel.

    DIY Birdhouse ... or Bird Trailer

    by on October 6, 2017 - 0 Comments

    My family loves birds. My grandma and grandpa live in the hills between North and South Carolina, and when I call I always ask my grandparents what birds have been around. They usually have chickadees, wrens, cardinals, and tufted titmouses (which happen to be my favorite). My dad loves hummingbirds and has several feeders on […]

  • Crochet Wallets

    I’ve been looking for a new wallet for months. My old wallet is a particular favorite, picked up at Target because it was a small, blue pleather item with a black French Bulldog on it with red glasses and a bowtie. After a few years, however, the pleather is wearing off and the design is […]

    PVC is one of those materials that, like duct tape, that can be used for so many more things than the original intended purpose. I’ve seen PVC used for everything from cosplay to birdhouses. PVC is a strong material, easy to work with, and a hardy product that can withstand plenty of hard knocks and […]

    Try These Knee Highs On For Size (free crochet pattern)

    I always get really excited when I find knee highs. There’s something about long socks that makes me feel fancier — and they keep you warmer, especially if they’re under jeans. Cold jeans are the worst. It has been more difficult to find thick, comfy knee highs of late, but I discovered the other day […]

    It’s difficult to find the right big bag — you don’t want anything too bulky, but you also don’t want a bag that’s flimsy – after all, you’re going to be carrying groceries, library books, craft projects, snacks, and the necessities and you need something you can depend on, that won’t snap or tear or […]
