I designed the Northern Trivet with simplicity in mind. I love quick crochet patterns as well as adding fiber and texture to my home decor, so I kept these things in mind when adding rounds to the design. The Norther Trivet is versatile and can be used under a potted plants, tea pot or as wall decor.
I hope you enjoy the Norther Trivet Crochet Pattern. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out. I am happy to chat about the pattern and answer any questions.

• 5.5 MM Crochet Hook
• 60 yards of Hobby Lobby I love this cotton yarn or 3.5 weight cotton yarn
• Yarn Needle
• Leather Tag (optional)
1”x 1” square | 5 SC x 7 rows
SKILL LEVEL: Beginner – Intermediate
PS – Puff Stitch
SC – Single Crochet
SK – Skip
NOTES & SPECIAL STITCHES:
CH1 and SLST count in stitch totals for each round. CH1 in the puff stitch counts in stitch count for each round.
Wrap yarn around hook, insert hook pull up a loop, wrap yarn around hook, repeat 3 times. (10 loops around hook) Wrap yarn around hook and pull through all loops, CH 1 to close.
Laying flat the finished trivet measures approximately 7” across & 8” with the loop.
CH 3, SLST into 1st SC to make a circle. Keep the SLST loose. (4) I find this technique works better with puff stitches than a magic circle.
Round 1. 6 PS into circle, SLST to top of the 1st PS (18)
Round 2. 2 PS into spaces between each PS from the previous round for a total of 12 PS, SLST to top of 1st PS (25)
Round 3. CH1, 1 SC in each CH1 around, for a total 24 SC, SLST to top of 1st CH. (26)
Round 4. PS in each ST around for a total of 24 PS, SLST to top of 1st PS. (49)
Round 5. *1 PS in 1st 3 spaces between PS from previous round, 2 PS in 4th space. Repeat from * for a total of 28 PS, SLST to top of first PS. (55)
Round 6. CH1, SC in each stitch around, SLST to top of 1st SC. (57)
Round 7. * PS1, SK 1, repeat from * around for a total of 28 PS, SLST to top of PS. (56)
Round 8. CH 1, *SC 1 into 1st CH from previous round, SC 2 in top of PS from previous round. Repeat from *
around ending with 1 SC, SLST to top of CH 1. (88)
Do not cut yarn.
Loop: Row 1. 10, SK 3, SC into 4th SC of previous row. Flip your work.
Row 2. SC 1 into the edge of the trivet and along the outside of the loop. SC 1 into 5th CH of trivet to secure the loop to the edge of the trivet. (12)
Finishing: Cut yarn and weave in ends. Optional: Add a leather tag to edge of your trivet.
