Cast Iron Skillet Box- crochet pattern


My daughter is a new cast iron enthusiast. It started with me getting her a skillet of her very own a few months ago, then I got a new grill pan for myself that she has been using regularly. So I decided to make her a little cast iron box for her rings. This box is very quick to make, but does take some piecing to attach the handles, and the disk on the lid so the lid sits right instead of just balancing on the pan.

You will need:
Black worsted weight cotton yarn- I used Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton
Size F or G hook (4.25 mm) - I work pretty tightly so a G hook worked for me.
large tapestry needle to sew pieces together and weave in ends
scissors

This box is made in 5 pieces.
Ch=chain
sc=single crochet
sl st= slip stitch
st or sts= stitch or stitches
repeat ** around means repeat what is between the asterisks all the way around.

Pan
Chain 2 or make magic ring
Round 1: 6 sc in first ch, sl st to join
Round 2: ch 1 (does not count as first sc), 2 sc in each st around, sl st to join (12 sts)
Round 3: ch 1 (does not count as first sc) sc in same st, 2 sc in next st, *sc in next st, 2 sc in next st*, repeat ** around, sl st to join (18 sts)
Round 4: ch 1 (does not count as first sc), sc in first st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next st,*sc in next st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next st*, repeat ** around, sl st to join (24 sts)
Round 5: Working in back loops only! ch 1 (does not count as first sc), sc in each st around, sl st to join.
Round 6-7: working in both loops, ch 1 (does not count as first sc), sc in each st around, sl st to join.
Round 8: Reinforce the top by slip stitching in each stitch around from last round. Break off and weave in ends.

Lid part one:
Chain 2 or make magic ring
Round 1: 6 sc in first ch, sl st to join
Round 2: ch 1 (does not count as first sc), 2 sc in each st around, sl st to join (12 sts)
Round 3: ch 1 (does not count as first sc) sc in same st, 2 sc in next st, *sc in next st, 2 sc in next st*, repeat ** around, sl st to join (18 sts)
Round 4: ch 1 (does not count as first sc), sc in first st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next st,*sc in next st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next st*, repeat ** around, sl st to join (24 sts)

Lid part two:
Chain 2 or make magic ring
Round 1: 6 sc in first ch, sl st to join
Round 2: ch 1 (does not count as first sc), 2 sc in each st around, sl st to join (12 sts)
Round 3: ch 1 (does not count as first sc) sc in same st, 2 sc in next st, *sc in next st, 2 sc in next st*, repeat ** around, sl st to join (18 sts)

Center the smaller piece on the bigger piece and sew together.

Handle for the pan:
Ch 9, skip 5 chs, and sl st in 6th ch, sl st back to first ch.
Round 1: ch 1 to turn, sc in next 3 sts, sc 6 times in loop, sc down the other side of next 3 sts. Break off leaving a tail to sew to pan.

Handle for lid:
chain 5, sk last chain, sl st all the rest of the stitches, break off leaving a tail to sew piece on.

Now it's time to sew it all together, the handle for the pan goes on the top row of the pan, the lid handle is centered on top of the larger circle and stitched into place.

  1. What a find! I have been using my grandmother's "black skillet" for almost 30 years, and my great-grandmother's "black pot" (Dutch oven) almost as long. Thank you SO much for sharing this marvelous pattern! :-)
