Double Thick Crochet Potholder / Hot Pad Free pattern! This easy-to-make crochet potholder is double thick to protect your hands, counters, and table. A pretty, yet practical gift that will last for years. I make these for gifts and people always love them. I like to use cotton yarn because it is insulating and machine washable. Unlike some yarns, cotton will not melt when you put hot pots and pans on it.
I found this amazing afghan block pattern and envisioned several possible projects that could be made from this pattern. I love the use of color, shape, and texture in this unique motif. This pattern uses fingering yarn, but you could use worsted weight for a bigger motif for a blanket or pillow. Worked in worsted weight cotton yarn, this would also be a beautiful trivet for your kitchen. Click Here to see the free crochet pattern.
