Inspiration: Modern Crochet Potholders
I always see the cutest potholders at the store, but usually the price doesn’t match with my budget. So what do I do, think about how I can make a similar version of the potholders using different crochet methods.
Have you ever done this at the store? Let me know in the comments.
These would make really cute gifts too for friends and family! I’m already thinking about all the different color combinations you can make using this pattern.
The yarn I chose to use for this project is cotton, because it holds up against heat really well. I would not recommend using acrylic for this project as the yarn can actually melt when its put against something hot. I used a mercerized cotton yarn from Lion Brand.
We will also be holding two yarn strands together for that extra double thick feel and look!
Create a modern double thick crochet potholder using only single crochet stitches in the back loop. This easy crochet potholder takes only a few hours to make. Plus, it would make such a cute gift for your friends!

- darning needle
14 stitches x 12 rows = 4 inches
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
scblo – single crochet back loop only
sl st – slip stitch
- Pattern written in U.S. terms
- Chain at the beginning of row does not count as a stitch

holding two strands together
row 1: In second chain from hook, sc across (44)
row 2: ch 1, sc across (44),
place stitch marker on the 44 ch, 2 sc on next chain (this counts as 45 and 46). continue with sc on opposite side till end (90), 2 sc on next chain (this counts as 91 and 92).
at this point you will work in the round (look at picture 1)
row 3: scblo in the round (92)
row 4 – 19: repeat row 3 (It should start to fold over and resemble a boat)
Once finished with all rounds, sl st to last ch
Fasten off and leave a 10 inch tail (The tail end can be used to close together both sides).
Using the whip stitch method, close both sides of the crochet piece together and weave in ends.
