Crochet PotHolder with plastic Ring Double Thick




Crochet PotHolder with plastic Ring

This is a double thick crochet potholder made with crochet cotton yarn.  I have been guilty of making these potholders out of acrylic yarn in the past.  However acrylic yarn will burn and melt with  heat and hot items.  I only recommend using cotton.


Here are a few more potholder ideas.

  4. I was just wondering about the instructions. On your video, you have round 1 with 5 hdc then in the next stitch 1 hdc, 1 ch, 1 hdc, but the instructions say 2 hdc, 2 ch, 2 hdc. Which is correct?
