Crochet Thick Potholder

My crochet thick potholder design has been made with 100% cotton yarn in 2 pieces and then joined together with single crochet stitch, I have used the very easy front loop, back loop technique.

It is a good pattern for beginner crocheters too, so hope you enjoy making it.

This is my first potholder on crochet ‘n’ create, if it’s received well I will do more patterns in different stitches and shapes, so make sure you pin it for later.
