This Woven Potholder Crochet Pattern can be worked up in so many different color themes … you can try a two color look or use a bunch of different colors like I did. For this potholder here (or do you call it a hot pad by you?), I used 5 colors of Debbie Bliss Cotton DK and a G hook, but it would also work up well in a worsted weight cotton with an H hook. The important thing is that your yarn is cotton because acrylic could melt if you put something hot on it.

Working on this woven potholder crochet pattern reminded me of the loom potholders I did as a kid. Remember them?! But I must say I enjoyed this crochet version much more!!

And I love how the bright colors go with the vintage-y things in my kitchen!

Arranging  the Strips

Place CA strips vertically on the solid backing so that they lay side by side with each short edge lining up with last row of backing.

With working yarn of backing, ch 1, attach strips to backing by working 3 sc across the edge of each strip and through the corresponding 3 sts of the backing, continue with each strip to corner, working 3 sc in corner st.

Weave remaining colored strips horizontally through CA strips, beginning with CB. Weave strip under first vertical strip, over next vertical strip, under next, etc. With a CC strip, weaver over first vertical strip, under next vertical strip, over next, etc. Continue with CD and CE strips and then with all colors again strips taking care to alternate  each strip. Secure the edges of each strip to the backing with safety pins or locking stitch markers.

With working yarn, continue attaching colored strips to backing by working 3 sc across the edge of each strip and through the backing, continue to corner, working 3 sc in corner. Repeat around remaining sides, working 2 sc in same st as first.

    This is such a fun potholder! My mom taught me how to do the loom quite some time ago, but never taught me how to take it off the loom. Hehe. This is a good alternative. Perhaps as a gift to her!

      What a sweet idea that would be!
