Why Crochet Pot Holders?

If you’re looking for a way to make your own handmade kitchen accessories and also make more sustainable choices, then crocheting your own pot holders and hot pads can be a great choice.

They are also a great way to make something that is extremely functional in the home and practice new stitch patterns since many times to create a potholder you will be making 2 identical squares and then stitching those together using a border stitch.

What is the best stitch to use for crochet potholders?

There is no 1 best stitch to use when making a crochet potholder, but you will want one that is free of large holes and that can provide a thick finished fabric.

In the patterns for pot holders that I have designed, I have used tightly stitched patterns such as the Paired Single Crochet Stitch, the Spiked Sedge Stitch, and the Even Moss Stitch.
