Felted Pothandles

I've posted before about these felted pothandles (here and here) and now that I've had my own for a year I can't imagine how I used cast iron pans without them.  We use ours constantly and the people I've gifted them to have told me the same thing.  So...this year most people are getting one as a gift from me. ;-)  I made two more to give away this past weekend and I have several more on the go.  I knit them up (easy to knit on the go) and felt them and then needle felt a design on them.





I really enjoy making them too because there is no pattern to follow, they're just right for my slap-dash personality. ;-)  I think my favourite is still the flame one I did for my Dad shown in that first link.

Nice blog, have a nice day!

Have you ever written down anything like a pattern for these? My sister and I both use a lot of cast iron. These would be a lot nicer than using hot pads! I'd like to make her a couple for Christmas.

So pretty! I need to get some handle covers for my cast iron pans too...

What a great idea Heather! How much bigger than the pan handle do you knit them before fulling?

So beautiful! I tried to make some but was slightly off in the measurements. ;-)

I love these! I missed the hen and chicks one when you originally posted it but that is my favourite. I would just like to add to your growing list of fans requesting some kind of pattern/guidance??!
