Knit Stitch Hexagon Trivet - Free Crochet Pattern - Raffamusa Designs

For this trivet, I wanted to make a simple and classic design to match my bee-themed kitchen collection.

The collection is still a work in progress, but you can already get a feeling of the mood and style by taking a look at the patterns that I already shared. These are the Honeycomb kitchen towel, the Honeycomb dishcloth, and the Tapestry Crochet Bee Potholder.

When you want to crochet a trivet, you definitely need to choose a solid and sturdy stitch. And that’s why I chose the knit stitch or waistcoat stitch!

The knit stitch is a simple modification of the classic single crochet, and it creates a beautiful and sturdy fabric, which is ideal for hot pads, baskets, or warm winter accessories.

If you’re new to the knit stitch, take a look at this detailed tutorial HERE on the blog or watch the video tutorial that I recorded for this pattern HERE on my YouTube channel.

Hexagon or Circle?

When you crochet in the round using the single crochet or a variation of it, you can essentially end up with either a hexagon or a perfect circle.

What makes the difference between the hexagon and the round shape is the position where you place your increases on each round!

I talked in more detail about the difference between a single crochet hexagon and a perfect circle in this blog post HERE.

Feel free to take a look!
