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.
