Double Thick Crochet Hot Pad

The Benson Hot pad is double thick and textured for the perfect kitchen accessory.

The pattern is crocheted in continuous rounds, using 2 strands of cotton yarn held together, to give this pot holder great integrity, holding up to heat and keeping your hands and counters safe.

I chose to use *WeCrochet’s *Dishie yarn in Silver and Navy. I love that Dishie is strong and functional, and still soft!

A special thank you to *WeCrochet for providing the yarn for this project.
