Recycled T-Yarn Kitchen Set

December 27, 2009 3 comments

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.

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.
