These are the pot holders I use daily. They are made of nice thick cotton, so that I don’t burn my hands. Each row in the pattern will end with the same stitch as you started. You will find the written pattern and crochet chart of these pot holders below.


  • crochet hook 4,5 mm and 5 mm
  • cotton yarn for crochet hook 5 mm. I used Epic from Yarn and Colors, color number 072.
  • a needle for sewing ends


  • Chain
  • Half Double Crochet (hdc)
  • Slip Stitch (sl st)

Crochet Pattern Lisa’s Pot Holders

Using hook needle 5 mm, set up a chain of 28. The last chain is your turning chain. Your pot holder is 27 stitches wide.

  • Row 1: (from now on we use crochet hook 4,5 mm) Crochet 1 sl st in the second chain from the hook. Then continue to crochet * 1 hdc, 1 sl st * Repeat between * * until the end of row. The row ends with a slip stitch.
  • Row 2: Chain 2 (this counts as your first hdc, so you do not crochet in the the stitch underneath). Work a sl st on top of hdc of the previous row. In the next stitch you crochet a slip stitch. Then continue with * 1 sl st, 1 hdc * repeat from * * until the end of row.
  • Row 3: In this row you start without a chain. Immediately crochet a sl st in the first stitch (not too tight). Then continue with * 1 hdc, 1 sl st * repeat between * * until the end of row. (You will have to take a good look now, because you have to crochet the last slip stitch into the second chain of the previous row.
  • Row 4 to 28: repeat rows 2 and 3.
  • Row 29: Crochet hdc around the pot holder. In the corners I have crocheted two hdc. On 1 corner you will crochet the loop, it is best to not end with this, because that will make your loop less strong. I crocheted this as follows: chain 12, 1 sl st in first chain.
