These lid grippers are made with non slip fabric, rather like soft plastic canvas. This type of material is also sold in rolls to use as non slip shelf liners from dollar stores.

-non slip fabric or set of placemats that grip
-plate to trace circle
-scissors
-yarn or crochet cotton
-4.5 mm or 5 mm hook

Trace around a small plate to get the round shape. Cut out. I was able to get 3 circles out of one placemat.
Once I cut out the circles I did some crochet around the edges just to fancy them up a bit.
Row 1 was just to do a single crochet in the holes around the edge of the gripper.
Row 2 was a double crochet in the first stitch, a double crochet in the second stitch, and then two double crochet in the third stitch. This was repeated around the edge. By adding the extra double crochet every third stitch it stops the edge from curling inward.
The final row was a chain of 5, skip the next stitch, then join chain into the third stitch. Repeat around the edge till finished.

My version of the edging is very simple, you can add any of your own favourite edgings when making this simple craft.
I’m much better at doing the crochet than writing down the pattern. There are no set numbers of stitches as circle sizes may vary.
