Well, I found a great stitch to use as a potholder. Its called the rib stitch in crochet. I just love it! It has depth to it which makes it perfect for a potholder. Heres the pattern:
you will need: worsted weight 100% cotton yarn, size F crochet hook.
Stitches used: ch,dc, fpdc,bpdc, hdc.
1 skein makes 2 potholders.
Make a slip knot and put it on your hook. Chain in multiples of 2. I chained 20. DC in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch accross.
Row 2:** * FPDC around 2nd dc, BPDC around next DC * repeat from *to* across, hdc in last dc or ch 2 made, ch 2 turn** repeat from ** to ** for entire piece.
If there is a fpdc put a fpdc and if there is a bpdc put a bpdc. Follow what the pattern does.
