Someone was asking for a potholder pattern. I have made this one in the past and I love it...it is thick enough to actually work!

*** Posting directions just in case link ever stops working
Double-thick Diagonally Crocheted Potholder
Materials: Sugar ‘n Cream 4-ply cotton yarn, G or H or I crochet hook

Gauge: Not critical - experiment! I get an approximately 5" square.

Chain 26 (This will be diagonally across the back of the potholder; so with future potholders, you can guess-timate how many you want to chain, to make the size you want).

Turn. Sc in 2nd ch from hook THROUGH BACK LOOP (photo shows where the back loop is). Sc THROUGH BACK LOOPS in each ch to end.

Sc 2 more times in last ch, so you will now be able to sc on the opposite side of the chain.

What was the front loop will now become the back loop (refer to photo - needle shows where hook should go). Sc in back loop of each ch back to the beginning.

Sc one more time in last ch. (53 sc)

Sc THROUGH BACK LOOP (where the needle is) of each sc around and around.

The two corners will start to curl - don't worry - as they should.

Crochet until you can fold the potholder so that the top edges touch.

Time to finish off, leaving a tail 4 times the length of the seam.

Sew up the seam. I go under one half of the stitch on one side...and under the whole stitch on the other side.

Trisha would it be wise to put a piece of Insul-Brite inside to act as a heat deterrent? I love this concept and will give it a try tonight. Thanks, Barb

I got two crocheted today. One I started with ch 26. I thought it was a bit small. So I made another and started ch 31. I like it much better. I haven't sewn the seam yet because I want to add the insul bright. I'll try it first thing tomorrow. These would go great with the table runners I'm doing for the craft fair next fall. I'm all excited about having a new project to work on at night. Thanks Trisha....

I found the original pattern to be too small also....Handling hot things I perfer mine much larger than those little squares! I am doing the Crocheted basket with pot holders, dish cloths, a towel, a scrubbie etc. for misc. Christmas Gifts for SIL's, Nieces and Nephews...all those people that we don't exchange gifts with but need to give some little gift to. I may do some bath sets also... but the pot holders are one of my favorite things to do... Thumbs up

You need to post your scrubbie pattern.

I love the potholders, and find they are plenty thick....
