Candy Cane Hot Pad – Free Pattern (Knit and Crochet!)

Candy Cane Hot Pad Free Crochet Pattern

Candy Cane Hot Pad Free Crochet Pattern

It’s week number 3 of our Holiday craft-a-long, and time for another cute free pattern with both a knit and a crochet version!

This week’s pattern is more suited as a hot pad than a pot holder…..as I really can’t imagine grabbing something out of the oven with something this long and skinny!  Haha.  It would also make a cute wall decoration or, if you make it with tiny yarn and hook or needles, a really adorable ornament.

A reminder for those of you who may have missed weeks #1&2…..We’re crafting up these cute little pot holders (or trivets…or hot pads) so we’ll all be able to add some awesome fun to our Holiday tables.  After we’re done making all of them, I’ll be asking you to submit a photo of your Holiday Pot Holders in action!  Everyone who submits a photo of all their finished pot holders together will be entered to win 10 of my patterns (or entry into my next 2 Mystery Create-A-Longs) for free!  You’ll have until January 1st to submit.

Want to join in on the fun!?  You’ll find the free Christmas Tree Pot Holder Pattern from week #1 by clicking here.

Come and share your photos with everyone in the Melody’s Makings’ Facebook group along the way…..or e-mail me your photos at melody@melodys-makings.com. I always love seeing them!

    • Hi Donna! Mine is about 9.5″ tall and 6.5″ wide at the widest point. Size 9 is what I used, but I didn’t include a gauge since the exact size doesn’t matter as much for these hot pads. It’s possible we knit at different tensions if yours’ turned out quite a bit bigger. Please feel free to adjust the needle size as you see fit 🙂
