Thanks for the pattern! Is it thick enough to use as a oven Mitt?

Thanks Sarah.
I've used it to move things quickly from the oven to the top of the stove. You could make it thicker by using 2 strands instead of one.

I have the time to crochet this lovely project but not the COTTON yarn (yet). On SSD and money is tight, though time is generous. Ania

Love this pattern :) As some people have commented on how thin it is with cotton I thought I'd mention recycled tshirt yarn. It's very good for heat! Making this for a wedding present :) Thanks!!

**NOT TOO THIN!! PERFECT!! Just wanted to say I made this with the cotton yarn and I've used it several times! I just now made some tater tots in the oven at 400°F and this oven mitt is NOT too thin. It's perfect. I even carefully tested by holding the pan as long as possible (ready to put it down if needed) and I did not feel burning heat. Just warmth. So, in conclusion. this pattern is easy, fun, and functional!! LOVE IT! <3

I would love to make this for my son but I'm not sure if it will be big enough. He is 6'8" and has VERY large hands. I don't know how to alter patterns. Any suggestions?

I think I did something like this by accident. I did the pattern with two strands of yarn and the oven mitt came out very large. Would Probably work for your son
