|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!

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.
It is never too late to be
What you might have been.
