Crochet Eyelet Apron Pattern

Hello Topsy Turvy readers! It’s Lindsay again with another simple, yet fun crochet pattern! Last month, we started out working on the basic single crochet stitch to make the Sailor’s Knot Crochet Belt. Did anybody try it? How did you do!?

Like I mentioned last month, we are going to be working on basic crochet stitches with each pattern that I share. I wanted to take it one stitch at a time so that we can all really perfect our craft! Once you have your single crochet mastered, the next step is the half double crochet!

To be completely honest…I hate cooking. I dread preparing meals everyday. I love to eat healthy and I have a huge desire to teach my kids healthy eating habits, but I still can’t get excited about the actual act of cooking. That’s why I have decided to make the meal making experience as cute and fun as I can.

What better way to feel cute in the kitchen, than with a new apron!

I introduce to you, the Crochet Eyelet Apron!

Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

Supplies:
1 skein worsted weight yarn for main color (I recommend using a cotton or easily washable yarn!)
Small amount of worsted weight yarn for accent color
Size L/11-8.00mm crochet hook
Scissors

Stitches to know:
Chain (ch)
Slip stitch (sl st)

*and our new stitch for the day:

Half Double Crochet (hdc): Yarn over hook. Place hook into next stitch. Yarn over. Pull hook back through stitch. Yarn over hook. Pull hook through all three loops on hook.

Let’s Begin:
With main color:
1. Ch 3. Sl st in first ch to form loop.
2. Ch 2. Work 2 hdc in center of loop. Ch 2. Work 3 hdc in center of loop. Ch 2. Work 3 hdc in center of loop.
3. Turn. Ch 2. hdc in next 2 sts. (2hdc, ch 2, 2 hdc) in ch 2 space. Hdc in next 3 sts. (2 hdc, ch 2, 2 hdc) in next ch 2 space. Hdc in remaining 3 sts.
4. Turn. Ch 2. Hdc in next 4 sts. (2 hdc, ch 2, 2 hdc) in ch 2 space. Hdc in next 7 sts. (2 hdc, ch 2, 2 hdc) in next ch 2 space. Hdc in remaining 5 sts.
5. Turn. Ch 2. Hdc in next 6 sts. (2 hdc, ch 2, 2 hdc) in ch 2 space. Hdc in next 11 sts. (2 hdc, ch 2, 2 hdc) in next ch 2 space. Hdc in remaining 7 sts.
6. Continue in this fashion (working hdc in each st, and (2 hdc, ch 2, 2 hdc) in each ch 2 space until you have 31 hdc along each side and 59 hdc along the bottom. On last round, fasten off.
7. Fasten on in one ch 2 space. Ch 2. Hdc in each st across bottom edge and finish with hdc in last ch 2 space.
8. Turn. Ch 2. Hdc in each st across.
9. Repeat step 8 for 4 more rows. Fasten off.

With accent color:
1. Ch 50. Sl st into top corner of apron piece. Now, hdc back down along your strand of chains. Fasten off.
2. Repeat on the other side.

The little details of this crochet apron pattern are what I really love the most. I love how the top edge becomes this nice “v” shape as the rows progress. And my favorite part are the little eyelets created by the “chain 2″ spaces. These details give the apron a feminine flair. You don’t always need to have ruffles to make something girly (don’t get me wrong- I do still love a good ruffle)!

I added a tiny little pocket to this apron, but any fun applique that you dream up would be cute! Perhaps a doily, or a flower, or maybe even a teapot applique!? I also tried a fun technique with this pocket which is using single crochets to make the fabric look like a knitted stockinette stitch, rather than crochet.

I go into a little more detail about how that technique works and I provide a pattern for the crochet pocket applique over on my blog, Love City, today.

That’s it! Now you can put on your cute Crochet Eyelet Apron and convince yourself that slaving over the hot stove is fun! Or maybe you can just prance around the house wearing your apron and a flouncy spring dress like I did!

Hello, there! This is Cher with Designs by Studio C. With the arrival of Spring and the rainy season upon us (depending on which part of the country you live in) it may be time to change the blades on the car’s windshield wipers. Never done this before? Let me show you how easy it is to replace wiper blades on the car! Let’s start by finding the correct sizes of wiper blades for the car… Have you ever noticed the books near the wiper blades in the Automotive section of the store?
