Crocheted Knob Pot Cover

Posted on January 1, 2010

T-Yarn Knob Cover As promised in my last post, here is my crocheted knob pot cover pattern. This project was worked using recycled t-shirts cut into t-yarn or tarn. Tarn is the material created by cutting the t-shirt into a long strip about 3/8″ to 1/2″ wide and then is gently stretched so the tarn curls in on itself. Here is my tutorial for making what I call curled t-yarn.

Rug Yarn Knob Cover For those people who would like to crochet this knob cover using rug or chunky yarn, here is a picture of my lid cover crocheted using some black rug yarn. I have included the option for crocheting with rug yarn in the free pattern below.

Depending on your knob size, you may need to adjust your stitches in the crochet pattern posted. The important thing is to check the fit of your cover as you crochet the rounds so your knob cover fits snugly and doesn’t slip off.

I just love my knob cover and use it all the time on my old glass crockpot lid. It is so nice now to just slip the cover over the knob and I can lift the lid without having to worry about it being too hot or slipping out of my hand.

I hope you enjoy this free pattern and want to take this opportunity to say Happy New Year.
Have a wonderful 2010 everyone!

Using t-yarn / tarn or rug yarn make a magic circle and Sc 7 times into circle. Do NOT turn your work in this project. Mark so you know where the round starts as you do not join in this project unless specially told to but rather just continue working in rounds.

    Excuse my ignorance. What is a magic circle?

    Lois – A magic circle is just a way to make a ring that slips closed so you can tighten it later for a smaller hole. I added a link in the post and also sent you an email with a You-Tube tutorial link.
