Cast Iron Skillet Handle Cover (Free Pattern)


Worsted weight cotton or wool yarn
Size I hook

I don't recommend acrylic yarn as it is more flammable. I made the first few with acrylic because I happened to have the scrap yarn in the colors I wanted in my stash. 

Remove before using skillet in the oven.

Hold 2 strands of yarn together throughout

Ch 3, join with slip stitch to first ch, ch 1

Round 1: 5 sc in ring, join with slip stitch to first ch, ch 1 (5 sc)

Round 2: 2 sc in each stitch around, join with slip stitch to first ch, ch 1 (10 sc)

Rounds 3 - 6: Sc in each stitch around, join with slip stitch to first ch, ch 1 (10 sc)

Round 7: Sc over first 2 sc (decrease made), sc in each sc around, join with slip stitch to first ch, ch 1 (9 sc)

Round 8: Sc in each stitch around, join with slip stitch to first ch, ch 1 (9 sc)

Round 9: Sc over first 2 sc (decrease made), sc in each sc around, join with slip stitch to first ch, ch 1 (8 sc)

Round 10: Sc in each stitch around, join with slip stitch to first ch, ch 1 (8 sc)

Round 11: Sc over first 2 sc (decrease made), sc in each sc around, join with slip stitch to first ch, ch 1 (7 sc)

Round 12: Sc in each stitch around, join with slip stitch to first ch, ch 1 (7 sc)

Finish off.


I'd love to see your pictures if you make some of these. I've had lots of questions on how well these protect. I have had no problems with using those made with 100% cotton. Acrylic is just a bad idea for this project!

Feel free to sell your finished product but please do not publish or sell my pattern elsewhere.

  2. Just made this and can't wait to try it out tomorrow. I made one change to the pattern which was working it in the round rather than joining at the end of each round. Turned out GREAT!! Thank you so much for this pattern.
