If you love to crochet
and want to add a touch of style to your kitchen, then why not try crocheting a kettle pot cover? These covers not only look beautiful but also protect your kettle from dust and scratches.
Before starting, gather the following materials:
- Worsted weight yarn in your favorite color
- 5mm crochet hook
- Tapestry needle
Follow these simple steps to make your very own kettle pot cover:
Step 1: Starting the Foundation Chain
Begin by creating a foundation chain that is the same length as the circumference of your kettle pot. Make sure that the chain is divisible by 6. For example, if the circumference of your kettle pot is 24 inches, then make a foundation chain of 72 stitches (6 x 12).
Step 2: Creating the First Row
For the first row, create a single crochet stitch in the second chain from your hook. Create another single crochet stitch in the next chain, and continue this pattern
until the end of the row.
Step 3: Creating the Second Row
For the second row, chain 3 and turn your work. Create a double crochet stitch in the next stitch, followed by a chain stitch. Skip the next stitch and create another double crochet stitch in the next stitch. Repeat this pattern until the end of the row.
Step 4: Creating the Third Row
Chain 1 and turn your work. Create a single crochet stitch in the first stitch, followed by a chain stitch. Skip the next stitch and create another single crochet stitch in the next stitch. Repeat this pattern until the end of the row.
Step 5: Repeat Steps 2-4
Repeat steps 2-4 until you reach the desired height of your kettle pot cover. Make sure to end on a row 3.
Step 6: Finishing the Kettle Pot Cover
To finish, fold your work in half, so that the right sides are together. Use a tapestry needle to stitch the sides of your cover together. Weave in the loose ends using a tapestry needle.
