About this Pattern
If you’re looking for a quick one skein project this spring or summer, you’re in the right place. Our textured crochet trivet uses the loop stitch to add enough thickness to be a safe buffer between your table and a hot pot.
With this project you’ll get lots of practice with the loop stitch, a unique stitch that’s great for projects like this as well as rugs. You don’t need a ton of experience to work it either. It’s made up of basic stitches you probably already know how to crochet.
Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We have a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations here on this page as well as written instructions and a tutorial to walk you through our textured crochet trivet from start to finish.

FAQ: Can I use a different yarn?
Sure, as long as it is in the same weight category. Check your gauge to make sure this substitution won’t affect the sizing and keep in mind the recommended amount will likely be inaccurate.
