how to create a thick Crochet potholder

A potholder not only keeps our hands safe from hot surfaces – it’s a fun and easy way to spruce up your kitchen decor. This simple guide will give you the best tips on how to crochet a thick potholder that is comfortable to use and durable enough to protect against heat.

Choose the Right Yarn:  Cotton yarn is the best choice for a potholder. It’s durable, resistant to heat, and washable. For a thicker and more protective potholder, opt for a chunky yarn, or for an extra boost, use two strands of standard-weight yarn. However, a too-thick potholder may lack flexibility for utensil use so keep that in mind, too.

Use Tight Stitches: Tight stitches are your best bet when making a potholder. The single crochets or the half double crochets are excellent choices because they create a dense fabric that insulates heat well.

Double Up: Why stop at one layer? Crochet two layers and join them either by sewing or crocheting. This will increase both the thickness and heat resistance of your potholder.

Add Thermal Stitches: Certain stitches, like the waffle stitch or the thermal stitch, are especially suited for potholders because they naturally create a thicker, more insulated fabric.

Remember, the perfect potholder is thick enough to protect from heat yet flexible enough for easy utensil use. Finding the right balance between these aspects is key to creating a practical kitchen accessory.

For a step-by-step guide on creating a beautiful and functional home item, take a look at this quick video tutorial on how to make a thick potholder. It not only demonstrates some of the techniques mentioned above but also adds a festive twist, perfect for St. Patrick’s Day.
