I am about finished with my potholders. I wanted to share the stitch I use for you crocheters out there. I don't know the true name of it. I call it a fat single crochet. It makes a double thick fabric with little work and does not use any more yarn or very little more than a normal single crochet. To start, ch 30, do a normal single crochet in second chain from hook and all the way across your chain for a total of 29 stitches. I used a size H hook and dishcloth cotton yarn. On the next row insert hook in the back loop (the loop furthest from you) and catch the loop at the bottom of the chain row.
It makes a very lovely pattern and once you get used to what it looks like it is really not hard if you count carefully and be a little careful.
Now for a little Sylvia picture of a little foot.
