Crochet Spiral Hot Pads
The inspiration for these easy crochet spiral hot pads came from a crochet design that I made a couple of years ago. I ended up putting that design (Modern Double Thick Crochet Potholder) on the blog and they became quite a hit! So I figured why not create another quick crochet kitchen pattern and put it on the blog.
I love quick beginner-friendly crochet home patterns! How about you? Don’t get me wrong, I love the long ones too. But there’s something so satisfying about finishing a project within a few hours. Especially when you’ve had a really long day. So I hope you enjoy making these easy crochet spiral hot pads.
These spiral hot pads are made in the round and contain only single crochet stitches. Add a cute loop on the top and you’re done. You can whip these up in under an hour. These easy crochet spiral hot pads would also make the perfect item for markets. I find that a lot of home items, like these hot pads, potholders, and coasters sell really well. Plus, they add an adorable homemade modern touch to your kitchen!
Crochet hot pads for any kitchen!
One thing that I love most about these easy crochet hot pads is that there perfect for any kitchen. Whether you have a modern kitchen or a farmhouse-style kitchen, these hot pads would fit right in. With its simple construction and textured look, they would look good in any room. I’ve also added a loop to these hot pads, so you can easily hang them up in the kitchen.
Plus, these hot pads are double thick! That’s due to the yarn choice, but more on that later!
Perfect for markets or gifts
These crochet spiral hot pads would make the perfect item for markets or gifts. If you’re into markets, I think these crochet hot pads would make an excellent item for your booth. Everybody loves kitchen items, especially when they’re homemade. I know from my experience, that customers always love it when they find out you made the items in your booth.
A lot goes into creating a pattern and picking the perfect yarn, so I always love to talk about that process with customers. Often times they appreciate the item even more.
These easy crochet spiral hot pads are also great as gifts. Make two of them and put a cute bow on top. You can even add some cute homemade recipe cards or a cookbook. Either way, I think the person is going to love your gift!
Yarn Choice + Substitution
I chose to work with Ganxxet double-thick Cotton Air yarn line. It’s this gorgeous number 5 bulky braided cotton yarn made from 95% recycled cotton. Although this yarn looks thick and is classified as a bulky yarn, it’s actually very lightweight. Making it the perfect yarn for spiral hot pads. Plus, it comes in multiple colors.
My favorite colors being natural, charcoal, beige, and cherry blossom. Another cool thing about this yarn line is that the fiber isn’t dyed. It’s actually made from old garments that get broken down and then spun back into thin fibers. The whole process is amazing and it helps eliminate waste. Waste that would otherwise end up in landfills.
Did I mention that its affordable, one small Cotton Air ball 3mm cost $8.95 and you only need one ball to make 2 easy crochet spiral hot pads. So if you haven’t checked out this yarn company, I highly recommend that you do!
Cotton yarn is the best for these spiral hot pads!
I highly recommend using cotton yarn for these crochet spiral hot pads. Since these will be used to put something hot on, you definitely want to use a natural fiber. Cotton yarn is the best option in my option. Acrylic yarn can actually melt when something hot is put on it, so cotton is the way to go. Plus, cotton yarn performs better if you spill something on it. Easier clean-up!
If you go with another yarn option other than the one recommended in the pattern, make sure it’s bulky-weight cotton yarn. Or use multiple strands of cotton yarn to double up the thickness of these hot pads. Another yarn option would be Lion Brand 24/7 cotton yarn, but I would double up the strands.
