Crochet Hot Pad Pattern *AND* Knit Hot Pad Pattern

Happy Friday! I am heading out today for a mountain getaway. Whatever you’re doing this weekend, I hope you have a wonderfully relaxing weekend!

I have 2 patterns for you today – one knit, and one crochet.

*This post may contain affiliate links. If you click on them and buy the product through that link, they’ll send me a little check as a thank you, and I’ll get to keep buying yarn, making the things, and sharing them with you.*

The bamboo stitch in knitting looks very similar to the crunchy crochet stitch, so you can achieve a very similar look no matter which is your preferred method. 

One of the fun things about these patterns is that they’re SO easily adjustable. Gauge isn’t really important, and you can adapt to make these into dishcloths, hand towels, or even blankets!
