Ok, I know this might be a stupid question and I should just go with my gut feeling...
Anyway, I'm making the skull potholder from the "Happy Hooker" and have just finished one square. It's pretty thick as it is and I've made a potholder before where I only made a simple square. Is there any reason for doubling it here and using two squares for one potholder that is just escaping me at the moment?
Or am I just beeing cheap, because potholder yarn is not the cheapest over here... Cool

Is it open at one end? If so, you can insert your hand in it and protect the top of your hand as well as your palm. Or double the thickness, double the protecion from the heat.

I sitting here with a burn on my finger...
I would err on the side of an extra layer.

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

If you know that they're just going to be hanging around looking cool, I'm sure one layer would be fine. If you're actually going to be carrying around hot dishes, I would go with two layers. I'm always surprised at how quickly heat can seep through fabric.

Thanks for the replies!
I guess since I'm probably going to offer it in the Shop the Swap I will leave it to the one who claims it.
