Pot Holder/Hot Pad - Free Crochet Pattern

Pot Holder/Hot Pad - Free Crochet Pattern
These pot holders work great because they are so thick, and they make great gifts.

The pattern looks more complicated than it is because of the colors. It is actually really simple!

You hold three strands of cotton yarn together throughout the whole thing, and that's what makes it so thick. In the example above, I used two strands of white and one strand of black in the one on the left, and on the one on the right, I used two strands of black, and one of white.
