KNITTED FRUIT POT & PAN PROTECTORS

Along with dishcloths, these fruit slices make great knitted Pot and Pan Protectors. Knit up various sizes to protect against your cookware’s scratches and scrapes. The sweet, cheerful fruit design is perfect to brighten up your kitchen cupboards!

Measuring at 8 inches in diameter, this is a fun little quick knit that is sure to challenge and obsess you! Although this design is a rounded shape, we are knitting on straight needles, not on circulars… and no decreasing nor increasing stitches either.

Wedge by wedge, our citrus shape appears by knitting twelve little triangles with the magic of turning! Make sure to watch my step-by-step video tutorial below… let’s knit it up!
