Looking for a crochet pattern that makes a potholder
That folds in on itself to make a double thick potholder then you just stitch the ends together.
I have instructions for a double thick potholder that is crocheted as one piece (rather than folded then stitched). Happy to share what I have or you might try a Google search.
Here's the one for which I copied the instructions but if you Google double thick potholder you'll find other versions.
and here's the link
I was taught a different way years ago. Cast on as many stitches as the size you want. Odd, even, it doesn't matter. Then working in the back loop only single crochet down the length.
Now do not turn your work and do not work in the end of the row. Work single crochet in the other half of the cast on stitches.
You will NEVER turn your work. Just keep going around working in the back half of the stitch only. After a few rounds you will notice the ends starting to fold in. Work till the fold intends meet. So it looks like a square. End off and leave a long enough tail to sew together the diagonal.
If this doesn't make sense let me know.
Thank you all. The one I was looking for was the one by metwo.This message has been edited. Last edited by: valetta,
Glad you could understand the sketchy directions. I have made dozens of these while riding in the car because they are so easy. I often use leftover yarn just changing color when it runs out. Makes it interesting looking....some more than others.
"Cast on as many stitches" when you say cast on, do you mean to use a long afghan hook instead of single crochets? I've been trying to do some Tunisian crochet with the long hook so I may have 10 stitches on my hook at once.
Or do you mean it's done like this one?
