After using the Thermal Stitch for multiple different patterns, I got so many requests for a potholder pattern that I went right to work and crocheted a free pattern for it. It sure is very easy to create and you can make as many as you like for yourself or even as gifts.
I am sure anyone would appreciate a handmade crocheted potholder as a present. I sure will make many for my mom for Mother’s Day and her birthday. And as I know my grandmother well, she will want several of them for Christmas.
In fact, I will also create a lot for myself. I even think these potholders make great washcloths too. As I am writing this, I realized I do need some new washcloths. So, I will create more and I will show them off on my social media pages. So be sure to follow me! I have some nice color choices and combinations in my mind.
As mentioned the potholder pattern is crocheted using the Thermal Stitch which is also known as the Double Thick Crochet Stitch. I have an extremely detailed photo and video tutorial available for you as well.

How to crochet the Potholder Pattern

Measured only from one side: 3 thermal stitches x 2 rows
Row 1: 1 sc in each ch (going into the back bump) starting from the 2nd ch from the hook, turn (16 sts)
Row 2 – 24: ch 1, 1 sc as a thermal stitch in each st, turn (16 sts)
