Crochet trivets are a great way to add some style and flair to your own kitchen decor. These also make great gifts. With a trivet, sometimes called a hot pad, you place it on the dining table or counter to protect the surface from hot pots.
This is a great project for the summer months when we want to crochet smaller things since it’s so hot. Like dishcloths, hot pad patterns are a great way to learn new stitches.

When the holiday season arrives these beautiful trivets would look amazing in different colors. Whether you’re trying to match your holiday table setting, or pick favorite colors for handmade gifts these are a fun project.
I’ve chose the beautiful Jasmine Stitch which resembles the flower it’s named for. This is a more advanced stitch. You’ll need the crochet skills to hold multiple loops and work across stitches. Beginner crocheters might try an easy pattern like this simple hot pad tutorial first.
If this is a new stitch you can follow the step by step tutorial for the jasmine crochet stitch. Get the details from the free crochet pattern below and then pop on over to follow the picture tutorial.
The jasmine stitch is great for this project because it’s so thick. For extra protection most trivet patterns with have you work a double thickness either by crocheting a double layer or holding two strands of yarn.
To make crochet potholders, trivets, hot pads or other kitchen accessories you’ll want to use cotton yarn. Hot dishes might melt any acrylic yarn. The natural fiber can hold up to high temperatures.
