Crochet Thick Potholder uk

A free crochet thick potholder uk format pattern which has been      designed using cottonsoft yarn.

To make it a nice thick holder I have made 2 pieces then crochet them together to join. Both the main pieces are made using the front and back loops stitch.

This pattern is an easy project if you are just starting to crochet and learn to work from a pattern, hope you have fun making it.

I am hoping to add more potholders in different stitches and shapes as I go on, so let me know what you think by pinning it for later or commenting below (or both lol)
