Star Trivet or Centerpiece ~ Free Crochet Pattern by Jessie At Home

Star Trivet or Centerpiece
Crochet Pattern
Easy Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

This star crochet pattern can be used as a trivet or a centerpiece. If your gauge is the same as mine, I have marked where to stop the pattern for the trivet, or you can go all the way to the end to make the centerpiece. However, you do not have to match my gauge for this pattern to work! It will just be a different size. Please remember to stay safe: don’t use meltable yarn for a trivet, and this pattern is not intended to be used as a potholder.

This pattern is part of the Patriotic Party CAL/KAL.
