I crocheted myself a new cast iron handle cover this weekend. My old one was all scorched and the stitching was frayed so I got out a ball of t-shirt yarn I had and crocheted a new one. Here is a photo of my new handle cover. I used this free handle cover pattern which is compatible for bulky yarns or T-yarn which is cut very thin from an old T-shirt and stretched. The T-yarn works wonderfully for handle covers. My old one lasted 5 years and makes it so handy to just leave on the cast iron pan. You never have to look for a potholder.
I bought a new cast iron skillet yesterday and crocheted a skillet handle cover for it. I used my original t-shirt yarn handle cover pattern, but had to work a few decreases as this handle was a bit narrower. I just love adding these thick handle covers to my cast iron pans as you don't need to worry about getting burned. I just leave it on all the time.
