How To Crochet The Striped Apron

The main part of the crochet striped apron is worked back and forth in rows with back loop single crochet stitches and front loop treble crochet stitches, so you have to know how to crochet in the front loop only and in the back loop only.

While crocheting the main part you will create holes in the crocheted fabric, so you can thread the ties into while finishing.

The tie is made working back and forth in rows until desired length.

The best thing about this crochet apron pattern is the fact that there’s no sewing, as long as you don’t want to get creative and add some large pockets in the front for a more vintage look.

Yarn For The Crochet Apron Pattern

The suggested yarn for this crochet apron pattern is Basic Stitch from Lion Brand Yarn. It’s an acrylic yarn, and the best thing about it is that the overall weight is light and that it is super easy to wash.

Next, the yarn does have some great color options, going from colorful to more muted.

If you want to substitute yarn, a great choice is cotton yarn with similar thickness.

How Long Does It Take To Crochet That?

How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?

Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Calculate how long it takes to crochet that.

Techniques Used In The Crochet Pattern

Changing Color With Different Color On Different Rows

When working with different colors on different rows, you’ll never finish the last stitch on the last row/round with one color, with the color you where working with.

Do all the steps of the stitch, then leave the last step unworked. Yarn over with the color for the next st & pull yarn through.

Repeat this for every row/round you change colors to make the color changes look beautiful.
