Simple Puffy Pot Holder

This is a project I’ve been meaning to get to for YEARS and I’ve finally done it! There have been at least a few times that I have needed a few more pot holders (hot pads) and it seems silly to buy them when it’s pretty darn easy to make your own. I’m actually going to come up with a few different patterns, but this is my first and I love it! After spending time trying to find a pattern I loved I finally gave up, sat down with all of my tools (yarn, hook, ruler, pen, paper) and created my own pattern. I’m sure there are others similar out there but this is my own. I hope you love it! And, stay tuned for more pot holder patterns!


-2oz 100% cotton medium weighted yarn (see below for colors I used)

-Small amount of contrasting cotton yarn

-H/8-5.00mm crochet hook

-Tapestry needle



sc = single crochet stitch

ch = chain

sl st = slip stitch

puff stitch = YO (yarn over hook), insert into desired stitch, draw up 1 loop, YO, draw through 1st 2 loops on hook & repeat for a total of 3 times, then YO and draw through all 4 loops on the hook.


1. sc chainless foundation = 27sts (8ish”)

2. ch 1, turn, sc in first, *puff stitch in next, sc in next*, repeat from ** across ending with sc = 27sts

3. ch 1, turn, sc in first and across = 27sts

Repeat rows 2 & 3 until it measures 8″ long, ending with a puff stitch row.

~At the end of the row chain 10, then sc in the same stitch to form a loop, and be careful not to twist the loop!

~Switch to contrasting color and evenly sc around the edge, 3sc in the corners.

~Finish by doing sc stitches around the loop, then sl st and fasten off, weave in ends and you’re done!

I used Peaches & Creme cotton yarn for this project, the main color is “Oasis” and the contrasting color is “Ecru”. You MUST use cotton yarn, acrylic will melt if you place a hot dish on it. For washing I would recommend cold water and either hanging or laying flat to dry.

The back looks quite lovely too!
