In an effort to live healthier we’ve slowly been transitioning from using non-stick cookware to cast iron & stainless. Over the holiday I decided to finally sit down and make some skillet handle covers and am very pleased at how they turned out. I wrote down the pattern as I went, if you catch a mistake please let me know.
