 4. Cast Iron Pot Holders Free Pattern!

Fave Fave Pattern number 4 is the Cast Iron Pot Holders Pattern! I love that so many of y’all use cast iron pans for cooking too! I have been using them for as long as I can remember and absoutely love them! They do get hot though, and my husband kept burning our other handle covers that had a large opening and hung down near the burner! So frustrating and dangerous! So I was determined to create a cover that fit the handle perfectly and protected the user’s hands too! Of couse we need a pot holder for the other side too, so this wonderful set was born and we are still using them to this day with ZERO burns I am thrilled to report! Find the pattern here!

This pattern is quick, easy, and very popular! It comes with 2 sizes because sometimes you need a larger rolling area, and sometimes you need to take up less real estate on the table!

2. FUN Freeze Pop Holders Free Pattern

Fan Fave Pattern number 2 is the FUN Freeze Pop Holders! Honestly this is one of the most fun patterns I have created and they were a huge hit with my kids. So now you know where the name came from! These were inspired by my kids near continual consuption of ice pops during the summer, and they would grab a napkin or a crocheted dish cloth to hold them and then leave it where it lay outside or wherever! So I had to step in and create a freeze pop holder pattern, of course! And why not make their fave animals while I was at it? So this FUN pattern includes instructions to create a giraffe, dinosaur, unicorn, shark, mermaid, and clownfish freeze pop holder! Find the pattern here!
