Here are some free patterns for crochet potholders. Maybe you'd like to crochet some potholders for your own kitchen, or perhaps you'd like to make some potholders as gifts for others. Either way, we've got you covered with a variety of free potholder patterns.
This is my favorite potholder pattern. It's easy. It's relaxing. It's a chic and simple design which will fit into any decor, whether your kitchen is decorated in contemporary style, country style, cottage style, any other style, or no style at all.
Afghan stitch is the main stitch used for crocheting this potholder; it's accented with single crochet around the edges. The afghan stitch works up into lovely fabric that I think makes an ideal texture for a potholder.
This is the same basic pattern as the afghan stitch potholder shown above, but I gave it a different edging. This edging is fancier, utilizing V-stitches for a sophisticated look. This version also doesn't have a hanging loop, so you'll want to store the potholders in a drawer in your kitchen or linen closet.
If you like to crochet coordinating sets of kitchen accessories, this potholder matches a lacy openwork cotton dishcloth I've designed. Both of these items would make fantastic gifts for weddings, housewarming, Christmas, birthdays, etc.
Crocheting these fun Christmas-themed potholders will put you in a festive mood. You'll be baking your Christmas cookies, cakes and pies in style when you use them. Even better, crochet several sets - one set to keep and a few more to give as gifts to all the cooks on your Christmas shopping list.
Brighten up your kitchen with these eye-catching striped potholders. The link above takes you to the free pattern for making the potholders.
This eye-catching potholder is crocheted using a free charted pattern featuring diagonal stripes.
This potholder is basically the same as the potholder linked above, but it looks totally different -- and Christmas-y!-- when you crochet it with red and white yarn.
This potholder is crocheted using variegated yarn in a colorway known as "shaded brown". The colors in this particular yarn have quite a bit of contrast, and are prone to producing a phenomenon known as color flashing. This unique combination of stitches and pattern work together to create an argyle-type effect.
