These are very big and sturdy pot-holders made in Tunisian crochet. The yarn I used is thick cotton in three colours. I made four squares and the crocheted them together two and two to get a good thickness. With these, even very warm oven pots can be handled without the risk of getting burned.
I also made a pair of crocheted pot-holders that can be used when handling smaller items. These are also made in thick cotton, but they are not doubled. All pot-holders in this post were made for my mother who has moved to a new apartment, and lost her pot-holders in the process.
