Thanks. It's fairly thick but I don't think it would work as an oven mitt or pot holder as the columns between ribs are pretty loose, it would be fine for setting something hot on so yeah, a hot pad would be OK. Thicker yarn would make it thicker of course so if you like the stitch pattern and want to try it, I suggest using some different yarns for testing it out and then decide how it would work for you. If I wanted double thick I think I'd go with double knitting.
