These crochet pot holders are double thick in 2 ways, the way you make the stitch itself and the fact that it’s 2 layers. I’ve never been burned when using one of these, they make great hot plates as well. And look GREAT in variegated yarn.

SC In 2nd chain from hook and in all 30 stitches, put another sc into the last stitch and pivot your work and work a sc into the rest of the 29 sts on this side giving you a total of 60 sts.
sl st and ch 1 into beginning st, DC into this beginning stitch as well. *Ch 1 and sk a st, dc into next stitch* sl stitch into beginning stitch and ch 1
You will be working in the stitches that you skipped from last round.
The beginning stitch you work one row down below, to the right, put a DC here. See picture below
Ch 1 and DC into next skipped stitch to the left. * repeat sl st into beginning stitch.
For beginning stitch ch 1 and working two rows down just to the right of the beginning stitch, put a DC, * ch 1 and DC into next stitch two rows down beside the dc from two rows down * so for this row it will be the dc’s from round 2. The picture below where the tip of my finger is.
This will be how you will work this Thick Mesh stitch for the rest of the potholder. When you get to the last DC of the round, DO NOT ch 1, just sl st into beginning stitch.
Rounds 5 – 19
Repeat round 4 – remember you will always be working 2 rows down, so the next round you will be working beside the DC’s from round 3 and so on and so forth.
This round you will be working like you did the following rounds, the only difference is you will be using SC’s instead of DC’s. This will close the holes made from the DC’s. So repeat round 4 only doing SC ch 1 instead of DC ch 1.
Once you finish the round, sl st into the beginning stitch. Now you have two options. You can use a tapestry needle to sew your potholder closed or slip stitch it shut.
Option 1: If you want to sl st it closed, then fold your pot holder diagonally and sl st to the corner and start sl stitching it closed, once at the end you can ch 5 or 6 or however long of a loop you like, and sl st it to the potholder. Ch 1 and cut yarn, work in tail.
Option 2: You can ch 1 and cut your yarn leaving a long tail. Work your yarn up to the corner and create a loop, holding it with your two fingers, repeat and make another loop.
Now using both loops, tie a knot. This will be your hanging loop for this side. Sew your potholder up and hide your tail.
