Square Trivet Crochet Pattern

Free square trivet crochet pattern, crocheted in a cluster v-stitch design, make two pieces the same and crochet them together for double thickness.

I have used cotton yarn, it is a great one to use in the summer, as it’s cool and easier to use, but you could use other yarns too.

I have used a simple single crochet and chain loop border for the trivet, it will be great for a beginner to practice their crochet skills.
