I love working with different stitches in the C2C method, besides the unique texture that is formed when working diagonally, it gives you so much freedom not having to plan too much ahead and count this long starting chain.

How Do You Crochet a Hot Pad?

Crocheting a hot pad can be super easy, and it’s a great project if you are a beginner, or if you want to learn a new stitch.

Whether you work in rows, or from corner to corner, you want to keep an average size of 8×8” (20.3×20.3 cm) for the crochet potholder to be big enough and easy to use.

It is better to use a stitch that doesn’t have holes, so it will create a solid and thick enough fabric.

What Yarn Should You Use For a Hot Pad?

When crocheting a hot pad, it is recommended to use thick yarn (Worsted (#4) weight yarn, or thicker). My first choice when making these kinds of items that I know I will use a lot is 100% cotton yarn. 

Cotton yarn is very durable, and can easily be washed in the washing machine. For this C2C Crochet Farmhouse Hot Pad pattern, I used Lion Brand – 24/7 Cotton. It’s 100% cotton, a solid yarn with beautiful colors, I also used it Boho Door Stopper.

Can You Use Acrylic Yarn For Hot Pads?

The problem with acrylic yarn compared to other types of fiber is that it’s flammable and can melt in high temperatures. That being said, it needs to be in contact with high temperatures for quite a long time in order to melt.

So if you use acrylic for a pot holder, your yarn will probably won’t melt, but it is still not advisable to use it for items that come in contact with high temperatures.

Can you use wool For a crochet hot pad?

Yes! Being a natural fiber, wool is resistant to heat, and will not melt when exposed to high temperatures.

The only thing that is less convenient when compared to cotton, is that wool needs to be washed by hand.
