However, with the Chunky Farmhouse Hot Pad, your search for the ideal kitchen accessory is over. This beginner friendly pattern combines the rustic charm of farmhouse aesthetics with the practicality of a hot pad, making it a must-have addition to any kitchen.


The inspiration behind the Chunky Farmhouse Hot Pad was born out of a desire to create a versatile and visually appealing kitchen accessory. Inspired by the cozy and warm atmosphere of farmhouse decor, this pattern incorporates chunky cotton cord and a simple garter stitch to bring a touch of rustic charm to your kitchen.


One of the key features of the Chunky Farmhouse Hot Pad is its ability to seamlessly blend style and functionality.

Additionally, you can adjust the size of the hot pad to fit your specific needs, making it adaptable to various kitchen tasks.

Cast on 15 stitches loosely - I use the long tail cast on.

If you want your hot pad to be bigger or smaller, simply increase or decrease your stitch count and adjust your rows accordingly.
