Free Eggs & Bacon Potholder Crochet Pattern

Eggs

Laugh it up in the kitchen with this Eggs & Bacon potholder. I’m a pretty patchy cook, so working in the kitchen isn’t something that I have a burning passion to do. So, if I can geekify my kitchen linens, it makes it more fun for me when I’m scratching my head wondering what to put on the table.

This free crochet pattern is a hot pad or trivet that depicts a couple of eggs and two slices of bacon atop a skillet. I can just hear them sizzling now.

Materials

Worsted weight yarn (any kind) in maroon, gray, white, and yellow

J hook

Project Notes

Egg whites and yolks are worked in spirals. The skillet bottom and top are worked in joined rounds. When joining rounds, do not turn after join; just keep goin’ in the same direction.

  1. This is soo cute! I’m wondering though, on round 5 of the egg whites.. I got to the repeat 3 times but the SC in final 3 sts, I have no more sts! 😦 I’ve counted and recounted and the row before that gives u 24 and that row would be increased to 33 but row 6 seems to have 36 sts so I’m always 3 sts off after row 5. Have I missed something? Please let me know if I’m just having a moment here cz I find myself being ocd when it comes to crocheting and I wanna make it right! Thanks 🙂

  2. This is adorable! I’m definitely going to be making this. I’m always looking for cute and unique crochet patterns like this to make as gifts. Last year I made your Facebook potholders for several friends for Christmas, and the recipients LOVED them! Keep up the great, creative work!
