Certainly! Here’s a simple crochet pattern for Siem’s Hot Pad:

Materials Needed:

  1. Worsted weight cotton yarn in your choice of colors.
  2. Crochet hook size H/5.00mm.
  3. Yarn needle for weaving in ends.
  4. Scissors.


  • ch: chain
  • sc: single crochet
  • hdc: half double crochet
  • dc: double crochet
  • sl st: slip stitch
  • st(s): stitch(es)


Hot Pad Front:

  1. Make a slip knot and chain 26.
  2. Row 1: Starting from the second ch from the hook, sc in each ch across. (25 sc)
  3. Row 2: Ch 1 (does not count as a st), turn. Sc in the back loop only of each sc across.
  4. Repeat Row 2 until your piece measures about 7 inches in length. This creates a textured pattern. You can adjust the size by adding or subtracting rows.


  1. Ch 1, turn. Sc evenly around the entire square, making sure to place 3 sc in each corner to keep it flat. Sl st to the first sc to join.
  2. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Hot Pad Back: Repeat the same steps as for the front of the hot pad.


  1. Place the two squares (front and back) together with the right sides facing each other.
  2. Join the squares together by single crocheting through both layers around the edge, making sure to place 3 sc in each corner.
  3. When you have crocheted around three sides, insert your hot pad filling (you can use a store-bought hot pad or make one by sewing together two layers of heat-resistant batting).
  4. Continue crocheting the fourth side closed, then sl st to the first sc to join.
  5. Fasten off and weave in any remaining ends.

Finishing: You can add a decorative border or embellishments if you like, such as a contrasting color edging or surface slip stitches for texture.
