Christmas Tree Pot Holder Crochet Pattern

Christmas Tree Pot Holder Crochet

Free Christmas Tree Pot Holder Crochet Pattern

Let’s have some fun collaborating on Christmas with this adorable Christmas Tree Crochet Pattern!

I’m always about five steps behind the curve on my holiday decorations, and planning. This year, though, I’m determined to get ahead….at least just a teeny tiny bit ahead.

So I thought it would be really fun if we all collaborated on a little holiday cheer. What do you think!?

Every week or two for the next 5 weeks until Christmas, I plan to create a cute free holiday themed pot holder pattern. Well, really these are more suitable as trivets, but you could make 2 to make them extra thick and use them as pot holders too. My husband and I went back and forth on what we should call them. We finally decided that “Thing to put your hot turkey on during Christmas dinner” wasn’t really suitable….so pot holder it is!

By the time Christmas rolls around, we should all have a really cute set of holiday pot holders to use during Christmas dinner!

Don’t worry! These are all really quick and cute patterns. After all, I know knit and crochet time is quite valuable this time of year.

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!

  8. This is precious! Thank you for sharing your patterns with us.
    I feel I must mention, though, that heat can melt acrylic yarn. Cotton is best!

    • Thanks Julie! I actually just grabbed something from my stash and then totally thought of that after….so this one may just end up being a decoration instead. The next ones I’ll have to either find some cotton or start using them as coasters 😉

  9. I’ve already requested to join the group, saved on Raverly and queued it, also shared on Pintrist. Yeah I’m really excited about this Christmas Collaboration. And I love this first pattern. I can’t wait to see what’s next. Will be starting this pattern later in the week. Thanks Melody.

  10. Is there a particular hashtag you want to use on Twitter for these pot holders?

  11. What a great pattern and a great idea as well. I know for myself, when I am working hard on a Christmas or birthday project there is always some point at which I need a little break and a little project to do during that break. My problem is that is spend so much time trying to find a simple quick project that I get WAY behind schedule and end up annoyed with myself. With you giving us the project ideas, I won’t have that extra to worry about. Thank you for all you do Melody. I love your designs and I truly appreciate you, your talent, and your willing joy at sharing it all with the rest of us.

  18. are we to use regular worsted yarn?It won’t catch fire will it? or do we use cotton yarn?

    Reply

    • You can use whatever you’re comfortable with. Cotton is the best if you’re going to use it to get things out of the oven, etc. I just use mine as hot pads, so I don’t worry as much about the fiber.
