Thick Pot Holders – Easy Crochet Project

Thick Pot Holders – Easy Crochet Project

Making new items for your home is always fun, in this post we will make these thick pot holders – Easy crochet project.  

This item uses only basic stitches and works up super fast.  These pot holders make great housewarming gifts.  Now you can use colors that match your home decor.  It’s also great because it uses so little yarn that it is a great way to use up partial skeins of yarn. 

Cotton yarn is the ideal fiber since it can absorb water and heat.  Also it will not burn the way that acrylic yarn does. 

I have to admit that I just love these kinds of projects.  They are fast, easy and I just like to have a stack of gifts ready to give on every occasion.  Whether for a housewarming gift, bridal showers or just when I know someone may be feeling a little down and needs some encouragement.
