T-Yarn Pot Handle Cover

November 8, 2009 10 comments

This recycled craft project was created by me out of necessity. I needed a pot handle cover for my old cast iron skillet. The handle gets hot and I wanted a sleeve type cover that I could just leave on the skillet. Well I grabbed some curled t-yarn or tarn and started crocheting. Here are my two finished t-yarn skillet covers.

Maybe you haven’t heard about t-yarn yet. Well it’s yarn you create from old recycled t-shirts. You take the t-shirts and cut them into long continuous strips. I then stretch it which causes the t-yarn to curl in on itself. Here is a picture tutorial if you’d like to make your own t-yarn.

The nice thing about t-yarn or tarn is that it stretches and fits snugly on my skillet handle. I also wanted to make one using regular rug so I crocheted this handle cover using some thrift store black rug yarn.

So whether you’d like to crochet your handle cover using recycled materials or regular yarn, here is the free pattern and details below. This pattern is easily adaptable for pots and skillets of different sizes. It’s a very easy pattern with simple stitches that works up quickly. So what are you waiting for — Grab your hook and crochet!
