The Thermal Stitch is by far the best stitch (that I know of) you can use to crochet a thick potholder. It’s quite dense and thick – it’s basically double the thickness of a normal single crochet. It’s perfect for a potholder or anything that needs that extra thickness. When trying this stitch for the first time, the trickiest part is to find the right stitch that you need to crochet into. The whole pattern consists of Thermal Single Crochets (single crochets that are worked into the back loops of current and previous rows together). That’s what creates the thickness.
This is a Thermal (Half Double Crochet Stitch) Potholder. This Thermal Stitch is a variation of the stitch I used in my Extra Thick Potholder. It’s also a Half Double Crochet Thermal but with a slight change which creates a different texture. You can see the lines between the rows are more prominent whereas the Extra Thick Potholder does not have them. Free written pattern and a video demonstration on how to crochet this stich is available on my website.

This Thick and Bumpy Potholder is bumpy with puff stitches on one side, and ribbed on the other. It is super thick and has a really nice texture. The best part - you only need 1 ball of yarn to make the whole thing!

No need to worry too much about weaving ends. At the end you will have a beautiful double thickness heart potholder. The pattern makes great gift for your loved ones, friends, teachers and especially who love to cook.
