Do you love the look of old fashioned potholders? I do, I had one small crochet potholder that was my grandma’s and then it became mine.

It was hand crocheted with crochet thread, and even though it was double thick it still wasn’t quite thick enough for a really hot pot. I wanted to make another hot pad that was thicker and my search began for a pattern.

I searched the internet for a pattern that was similar but I couldn’t find the right one. I decided it would be better to make my own pattern from the potholder I had.

I counted the rows, deciphered what stitches and where to use them, and came up with this double thick crochet potholder pattern.

These are quick to make, even though you need to make two of them. I was able to get one done in about an hour.

For this double thick crochet potholder pattern, I used a baby weight cotton yarn, but any thinner cotton yarn would work. I would suggest using a fingering, baby, sport or DK yarn. I’ve linked to my favorite DK yarn below, it’s a mix of cotton and linen and it’s inexpensive too.

  1. I love this pattern! So pretty and useful too 🙂 You should see how awful my old potholders look…so many of them have burn marks where they got too close to a burner on the stove. I should really make myself some new ones, in colors to match my kitchen!
