Learn how to crochet an easy knit stitch Hexagon Trivet with this free pattern and video tutorial!
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.
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!
