What do you call that thing you put under hot dishes to protect the table? Trivet? Hot pad? The world seems divided! But united we stand, and the Star Spangled Trivet (or Hot Pad!) is ready to stand up to whatever you dish out - and look festive while doing it! Made with bright washable Kitchen Cotton, this free trivet pattern will perk up your table for years to come! It starts with a mesh base, and then the “wiggles” are added to create the fun 3D look - and keep your counters and tables safe!
If you have a busy kitchen, you probably go through several dish cloths a week. To save some money, consider crocheting your own Durable Dish Cloths. This free crochet pattern is a quick work up and the perfect addition to any kitchen. They would look fabulous in seasonal colors or matching any of your other kitchen decor. Using an acrylic yarn or any other textured yarn will insure that your dish clothes are optimal scrubbing machines. These would make a great housewarming or wedding gift for a couple with a brand new home. Learning how to make crochet dishcloth patterns can save you a ton of time in the long-run. Avoid buying new dishcloths every 6 months to a year by creating your own with free crochet patterns. This simple pattern is a great place to start!

This is a traditional hot pad, honestly, the best ones I have ever used. This is not my design, but a common way to crochet hot pads that my Great Grandmother taught me and I want to share it with you. These are my most requested crochet items from my family! I love to gift them for any occassion, but I like to add a dish scrubby because we always need more. I wanted to help you enjoy making these as gifts this year as well so I created a cute printable gift tag you are welcome to use!
This is a simple set, worked with scraps of yarn. The dish cloth and dish towel are worked in the same stitch pattern with a slight variation for a subtle change in texture and thickness. The trivet is a basic granny square with a couple of simple changes. All three pieces work together or individually and are a great way to use up small amounts of yarn. They make great hostess gifts or holiday stocking stuffers too! Size is approximately: Dish cloth 8” square Dish towel 10” x 14” Granny Trivet 7” square
Based on a quilter’s block pattern, create a colorful dish scrubby that combines cotton and textured yarn for a multi purpose cleaning. Each dish scrubby consists of 4 motifs that are joined together to create a quilt-like block pattern. The four motifs are fun to rearrange to create a multiple of block patterns. Step by step YouTube video available. Dish cloth is 5 ¾” x 5 ¾” and calls for one skein of Red Heart Scrubby and Red Heart Scrubby Smoothie yarn.
