Cast Iron Pot Holders

Free Crochet Pattern

Hey there Crochet Friends! I am so excited to bring you another fun and functional (my fave combination!) Free Crochet Pattern! I had a lot of fun making and designing the Cast Iron Handle Cover and Pot Holders Pattern. I sure hope y’all have as much fun making these as I did!

The Cast Iron Handle Cover pattern was inspired by my sadly burned and endlessly dirty handle covers. We only cook with Cast Iron Pans in our house, but I found that the covers I was given were not a good fit and were NOT easy to clean! Crochet Queen to the rescue y’all!

With these issues in mind, I started thinking about a way to create a Cast Iron Handle Cover that was both quick and easy to make and clean, that would fit the handle well, and was thick enough to keep us from burning our fingers! I know there are lots of similar patterns out there, and this is by no means an original idea, but I think you will find my method of construction to be quick and easy, and the fit to be great!

Make a quick gift of a Cast Iron Handle Cover!

So I played around with a few different methods, but quickly settled on what I think is the quickest and best approach to construction. The Cast Iron Handle Cover is very quick and easy to make, great for instant gratification and giving them as gifts! I love a fun project that I can give away, and this one great because you can make several pretty quickly.

Of course I couldn’t stop with the handle covers, and had to design a Pot Holder to go with it! They make the perfect pair, and the Pot Holders can be used for any dish, hot or cold! Give these together with a pan, a recipe and the ingredients (best for desserts!), or make a nice matching set of pot holders and handle covers! Don’t forget to make a few for yourself too!

Cast Iron Pot Holders are great for Craft Sales!

The Cast Iron Handle Cover pattern is very quick to make, you could make several in an hour, and the Pot Holder works up in under an hour too! The patterns both consist of simple repeats, so this is a great Netflix and Crochet project! The Cast Iron Pot Holders would make great items to sell at your  fall markets! It’s always good to stock your table with quick projects you can sell for a lower price point!

Materials: 

Worsted Weight yarn (120-180 yds) 

Handles: 25-35 yds
Pot Holder: 120 yds
I used Lily Sugar’n Cream
I 5.5 mm hook   

 

 

Pattern Key:

st(s) – stitch(es)  
space – sp(s)  
sl st – slip stitch  
ch – chain  
sc – single crochet
puff st – See tutorial below
incr – incr by 2 sc in same st  
decr – decr by sc2tog  
yo – yarn over  
FO – fasten off

Gauge: 

Handles: 6 sc and 7 rows = 2”
Pot Holder: 4 puff st + sc  x 10 rows = 4″
Check your Gauge first with a hook
Special Stitches:
PUFF STITCH: Yo, insert hook in next st, yo, pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), yo, insert hook in same st, yo, pull up a loop, (5 loops on hook), yo, insert hook in same st, yo, pull up a loop, (7 loops on hook), yo, pull through all 7 loops on hook, ch 1. Puff stitch formed!

NOTES:

  1. Read through the entire pattern first.
  2. Make a gauge swatch to ensure accurae sizing. Having the correct gauge is helpful, but not entirely vital for this pattern. The best gauge is to try the handle cover on your pan once you have completed the first few rounds. The fit should be snug but easy to put on and remove for cleaning.
  3. Beginning chain does NOT count as a stitch.
  4. Handle is worked in rounds. Pot holder is worked back and forth in rows.
  5. Repeat stitches between * and * the number of times indicated.
