Cast Iron Handle Cover

September 9, 2018 1 comment

After 5 years my old cast iron skillet’s handle cover was worn out. The top edge was scorched and the stitching was frayed. So it was time for a new handle cover. I got a ball of t-shirt yarn and crocheted this new handle cover.

I crochet my cast iron handle covers using this free crochet pattern and t-shirt yarn. I cut my t-shirts in thin long continuous strips and then pull on it to make what I call curled t-shirt yarn or tarn. Here is a picture tutorial showing how I make yarn from t-shirts. […]

Crocheted T-Shirt Yarn Skillet Handle Cover

May 25, 2013 4 comments

I bought myself a new cast iron skillet today. I love cooking with cast iron. No worry about non-stick coatings coming off the skillet and eating the coating material. Cast iron cooking pots and skillets literally can last a lifetime if cared for properly.

So I needed a medium-sized skillet for cooking and bought myself a new Lodge cast iron #10SK 12 inch skillet. Of course I needed a new handle cover for the new pan. I have crocheted pot covers for my other cast iron pans and they are so handy. You don’t need a potholder to move it and the handle cover is always on the pan. I just leave the cover on the pan as generally the handle doesn’t need cleaning or seasoning.

Here is the free crochet pattern for the t-shirt yarn handle cover. I cut my t-shirt strip in one continuous strand about 1/4 inch wide. Then I gently stretch the narrow strand which causes it to curl in on itself. I call this material curled t-yarn.

This skillet handle is a bit narrower than my big cast iron 14 inch pan so I had to work a decrease on each side of the cover[…]
