Recycled T-Yarn Kitchen Set

T-Yarn Kitchen Set

Now that Christmas is over, I can share my t-yarn kitchen set that I made as a gift. It was crocheted using recycled tee-shirts cut into yarn or tarn as some call this recycled craft material. My set included a trivet, potholder, knob cover and a skillet handle.

If crafting with recycled tee-shirts is new to you, here is my tutorial on how to create what I call curled t-yarn or tarn. Below is the free pattern for the round t-yarn potholder. I previously posted the patterns for the trivet hotpad here and the skillet handle cover here.

T-Yarn Knob Cover
The knob cover pattern is available now here. I wanted to keep this post to just the free pattern for the round potholder so people could find each pattern more easily on my patterns page. In case you didn’t know, my patterns page has all my patterns listed together so you can find them quickly by clicking here.


T-Yarn Round Potholder Pattern

Materials needed:
One tee-shirt (white) and another partial shirt of contrasting color (blue)
Cut into 1/4 inch wide strips and gently pull to curl your t-yarn

Hook: K (6.5 mm) size metal crochet hook
Finished Potholder approx: 7 inches wide

Make Two

Rnd 1
Using magic circle with white t-yarn, work 6 Sc in circle. Do not turn your work in this project.

Rnd 2
Work 2 Sc in ea st around.

Rnd 3
Ch 1, work *2 Sc in next st then Sc in next st*. Repeat between * to end of round. Join with a Sl St into the beg Ch 1. FO.

Rnd 4
Join using blue t-yarn and Ch 1. *2 Sc in next st, then Sc in ea of the next 2 sts.* Repeat between * to end of round. Join with a Sl St into the beg Ch 1. FO blue.

Rnd 5
Join using white t-yarn and Ch 1. *Sc in ea of the next 3 sts, then work 2 Sc in next st.* Repeat between * to end of round. Join with a Sl St into the beg Ch 1.

Rnd 6
Ch 1, *Sc in ea of the next 4 sts, then 2 Sc in next st.* Repeat between * to end of round. DO NOT join, but just continue working in rounds from this point on. Place marker at round beg if needed so you know where ea rnd begins.

Rnd 7
*Work Sc in ea of the next 5 sts, then work 2 Sc*. * Repeat between * to end of round.

Tip: If needed add a st here or there to make your potholder lay flat. Working with recycled materials isn’t a perfect craft and you may have to adjust your sts to get a flat product.

Rnd 8
*Work Sc in ea of the next 6 sts, then work 2 Sc*. * Repeat between * to end of round.

Rnd 9
*Work Sc in ea of the next 7 sts, then work 2 Sc*. * Repeat between * to end of round.

Rnd 10
*Work Sc in ea of the next 7 sts (one more or less – adjust as needed), then work 2 Sc*. * Repeat between * to end of round. FO and weave under ends.

Holding your two round potholder pieces with wrong sides together, join blue t-yarn and work Sl St around the complete potholder through both layers. Ch 8 at top to make a loop holder and join with Sl St into beg Ch 8 and FO.

I didn’t have enough blue t-yarn left so I had to finish off this last round in Sl Sts but if you have enough materials, you could Sc evenly around the complete potholder as an optional edging.

    Wow Cindy, that is so creative! I’m in awe of anyone who can turn one item of clothing into another, especially when you have to make your own yarn to do it!

    I bet the recipient of your thoughtful gift was over the moon. Thanks for sharing!

    I found you through the All Things Eco carnival 🙂

    Warm wishes
