Extra Thick Crochet Potholder – Free One Skein Pattern

Another thermal stitch pattern – a step up from the one before, with a slight twist! This one, I think, is even thicker than the previous as it’s using a different thermal stitch. I love the texture of this potholder and in my opinion there is nothing that compares to thermal stitch in terms of creating a thick and dense crochet fabric! I classify this stitch as Intermediate level and you’ll need attention to detail to master this stitch! But the result is so worth it.
