Easy Crochet Apple Trivet

Written by chanie on July 12th, 2011

When I imagine getting old, I like to think of myself sitting on a rocking chair on a porch somewhere, crocheting. It doesnt have to be for oldies though. In fact, I think crocheting keeps me young. There’s something about sitting down with a ball of yarn that I find so peaceful and relaxing. It really helps me unwind. When I have some free time, especially in the summer months, I love to whip up quick and easy crochet projects in the cool summer breeze.

I recently purchased these cork trivets at Ikea. Trivets really come in handy, especially when cooking for Shabbos. At $2.99 for a 3-pack, they were really a steal and I just couldn’t pass them up. They were not too exciting as far as looks go, so I decided to crochet some fun designs around them.

Since they are made of cork, you can use these for your hot pots, or as little bulletin boards in your kids room!

  1. My crocheting doesn’t get more ambitious than scarves and blankets. I love crocheting but have never crocheted in the round. I am very impressed.

      Thanks Rivki! I used to be intimidated by crocheting in the round as well (forget about knitting – 4 double pointed needles, oh my!) but I am so glad I learnt. I’d be happy to help you, if you are ready to take the plunge :)

    All of the items shown here are beautiful. I would love to make copies of the pattern’s but I have no printer and don’t know anyone who does. Does anyone know what size the cork circle is and where to get them? My daughter has an apple-themed kitchen and she would love these. Have a great day.

      Thanks Sheila! Actually my trivet cracked a little while ago, so I can’t measure it for you. It’s the size of a basic potholder and I got them at Ikea.
