Planning to cook up some cast iron skillet recipes? Save your hands and make a handle cover with this easy crochet cast iron skillet handle cover pattern!
The weather is warming up and people are starting to think about camping. The number one cookware for camping is cast iron.
However, cast iron is also becoming fun to cook with on the grill and in the oven. Boy, I have seen some delicious desserts made in a cast iron skillet.

I thought it would be neat to make a handle cover that a person could slip on to the handle and help protect their hands from the heat. Sort of like a pot holder for the handle.
So, I got up my cast iron skillet from the garage. Cleaned it up and re-seasoned it.
Since it is going to help protect hands from heat, I chose to use two strands of cotton yarn. It just makes it a little bit thicker.
Also, I only used single crochet stitches. This way there are fewer holes for the heat to seep through.
Supplies for a Crochet Cast Iron Skillet Handle Cover
