They have already done the work

For my own crochet potholders, I use 4-ply cotton yarn,
pounds have been purchased from Peaches-n-Creme Yarn

size 4.5mm crochet hook, which is between a G and an H

foundation begin with 37 chain stitches, but shorter or longer will work

and my own little preference is to grab only the back loop which makes a nice ridge providing friction when picking up a hot dish
I whip stitch the edges together

okay, I found some links, many with pictures

Mielke’s Fiber Arts, LLC/> is the closest to what I crochet

My Boring Life

Thrifty Fun this one shows pictures of how to crochet on the hanging loop

Nightly Knitter’s Lotsa Stitches which links back to Mielke’s

if you need more, look up a ‘Net search saying
Crochet Diagonal Potholders

I hope this gets ya going.
I need a nap.

~~love and Huggs, Diane
update Wednesday afternoon: received a phone call asking how much yarn to purchase
Usually, I find that about 2 ounces Peaches-n-Creme cotton makes one potholder, which is what the ombre colors are
a solid ball weighs 2.5 ounces
if using scraps, I just tie a knot and keep working, making sure the knot goes to the back and will be folded inside when finished
