Crocheted Potholders with Recycled Rings

Posted on February 4, 2015

I love crafting with recycled materials. So when I crocheted these potholders, I used recycled plastic rings for the projects. I recycled these plastic rings from milk, juice and other plastic bottles.

Here are two crocheted potholders I made using my recycled rings. The green potholder has a milk jug ring for it’s loop ring and the blue speckled potholder has a smaller juice ring for the hanging ring. So depending if you like a larger hanging loop or smaller, just choose the ring dimension that you like best to crochet around the plastic ring for your potholders.

Both of these potholders were crocheted using my free basic potholder pattern.

So save all those plastic rings and use them for your potholder’s hanging loop in your next crochet project. They work wonderfully for a potholder’s loop and you can’t beat the price of them — They are FREE!

    Do you have any tips on getting the rings off of the bottle without stretching it out?

    I usually press down on the plastic bottle neck so I can slip off the ring. Sometimes I use a spoon and try and use gentle pressure to get it off if its stuck on hard. I have been known to break them if I use too much pressure. Try putting the bottle on the countertop and pressing down on the neck to flatten the opening. This seems to work as it stretches the bottle allowing the ring to slip off. Best wishes and hope this works for you.
