How to Make a Pot Holder Loom

When looking for a simple, kid-friendly way to create pot holders from colorful pieces of fabric, consider a pot holder loom. This fun project is fairly easy to do and can be completed in about an hour. To get started on your pot holder loom, you will need a few simple materials:

Supplies Needed:

  • 6-inch styrofoam or wooden loom
  • Yarn
  • Crochet hook
  • Pre-cut fabric strips of various colors
  • Latch hook


  1. Wrap the yarn around the loom: Secure one end of the yarn to the bottom of the loom and, using a wrapping motion, wind the yarn around each peg of the loom. When you reach the last peg, secure the yarn to the bottom of the loom.
  2. Cut the fabric strips:Using pre-cut fabric strips, cut the fabric into 7- to 8-inch pieces and set aside. Make sure to have a variety of colors.
  3. Latch hook the fabric strips: Starting at the bottom right of the loom, use the latch hook to pick up and secure a fabric strip to the yarn. With the fabric facing the back of the loom, secure the strip on the bottom right around the last peg counter-clockwise, then move to the next peg and secure the fabric strip around it. Continue this pattern around the loom until you reach the last peg.
  4. Wrap the yarn:Once you reach the last peg, wrap the yarn around each peg of the loom, securing it underneath the fabric strip in the back. When you reach the first peg, secure the yarn to the bottom of the loom.
  5. Secure the yarn: At the top of the looped yarn, secure the yarn with a knot and cut remaining string, leaving room for the crochet hook.
  6. Crochet the last row and knot off: Insert the crochet hook through the looped yarn on the top of the loom. Yarn over the hook and pull it back through the loop, creating a new loop. Repeat this process until you reach the end of the loom. Secure the yarn with a knot.
  7. Remove the pot holder:Gently remove the finished pot holder from the loom, and you’re finished.

Now you have a gorgeous, colorful pot holder for your kitchen. Making a pot holder loom is an easy way to get crafty with your kids, and with the help of this guide, it should be a breeze!
