Bowl Cozy/Hot Pad FREE Crochet Pattern

Several months ago a friend had posted pictures of some bowl hot pads she had sewn as gifts for Christmas.  I really liked the idea of them, but living in a small space that does not afford leaving my sewing space set up I decided to design a crochet pattern for them instead.  My first one was a gift for my Daddy for Christmas, along with some other hot pads and dish cloths.  He sent me a picture as soon as he opened the package!!  With a little more work on the pattern I am finally ready to publish it here!!




This pattern is GREAT for holding your hot bowl of soup OR cold bowl of ice cream!!  It can also go in the microwave while re-heating items in your bowl and the corners can be used for carrying.  Be careful to NOT get your hot pad wet before putting it in the microwave.  This can cause serious burns!! 

Remember....I am a human and sometimes make mistakes!!  If you find an error with my pattern, please let me know in the comment section and I will try to correct it as soon as possible!!!


This is an Original Design by Amy B Stitched. Feel free to make for profit, but remember to give credit to me, and link back to my blog www.amysastitchatatime.blogspot.com

Size: fits a 6 inch bowl 
·         Base: 5 inches, measured from increases across.
·         Finished Sides Height: 3 inches
·         Edges: 7 inches x 4 sides

Gauge:  4 sc = 1 inch, 5 sc rows = 1 inch

Stitches and Terms Used:
·         Ch – chain
·         Sc – single crochet
·         St(s) – stitch(es)
·         Sl st – slip stitch

* NOTE: This pattern is worked up tightly so that it holds shape around the bowl. Not all worsted weight cotton's are equal.  Some work up much smaller, so be sure to check your gauge to ensure a proper fit.

BASE: make 2, DO NOT finish off after the 2nd one. 
Rnd 1: Ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook. DO NOT JOIN. Place marker in last st and work in continuous rounds.
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st around. (12)
Rnd 3: (sc next st, 2 sc next st) around. (18)
Rnd 4: (sc next 2 sts, 2 sc next st) around. (24)
Rnd 5: (sc next 3 sts, 2 sc next st) around. (30)
Rnd 6: (sc next 4 sts, 2 sc next st) around. (36)
Rnd 7: (sc next 5 sts, 2 sc next st) around. (42)
Rnd 8: (sc next 6 sts, 2 sc next st) around. (48)
Rnd 9: (sc next 7 sts, 2 sc next st) around. (54)
Rnd 10: (sc next 8 sts, 2 sc next st) around. (60) Finish off first one (DO NOT sl st in next st to even out row).  DO NOT finish off after Rnd 10 for 2nd one.

JOIN BASES:
Holding wrong sides together, matching up increases and working through both thicknesses.  Don’t worry about the step from the last rnd of the 1st Base, it will even itself out and be much easier to see the stitches without a sl st in the way.

Rnd 11: Sl st in each st around.  (60)
