a thumbs up and it always a big help if you could watch my videos from start to finish so I'm gonna show you how to make of this this is decorative for your kitchen you can use it if you want it I guess but it goes over your stove handle so it's like this is what it looks like now you are free to put this apron over here if you want it to look the same but this is the back so I only chose to put the apron on the front but it goes out like this will go behind your still you're still handle go in like this and then it wraps around so this is on the back part your still handle this goes in front of it and then you got your two little ties on both sides and then it just ties on it's really cute I think it turned out really nice I really like it it's super cute and it's really pretty easy to make so let's go ahead and get started on this okay for this project I am using I love this cotton from Hobby Lobby it is a medium a4 weight 100% cotton you do not have to use this yarn if you are going to use it as – as a wash rag or a dish rag to dry with I would recommend nothing less than an 85 percent cotton but if you're going to use it purely as decoration any for weight yarn would work cotton or a cotton blend would be best for anything in the kitchen but even if you did use acrylic it will still look the same so there's a hundred and fifty three yards per skein and I didn't quite used to so you're gonna need about three hundred yards up your main color a the color I'm using is called monkey brown and then I used the same brand for the apron and you're probably going to need if you just put the apron on one side you're probably going to need about a hundred yards if you're going to 120 hundred yards probably and you're going to put it on both sides you're gonna need about two hundred yards probably something like that in the color of this that I use is called antique cream but of course you can use any color that you choose and then I'm going to be using a size H which is a five millimeter crochet hook alright we're gonna start out with a chain of 42 and then without twisting the chain we're gonna follow it down and we're gonna slip stitch into the first stitch to form one large ring just like that now we are going to chain one and we're going to go back into the same stitch and do a single crochet like that and now I'm going to work one single crochet in every single stitch all the way around the larger ring until I get back to the beginning just like that so one single and every stitch to get back to your starting point okay I've made it to the end of round one and you should have forty-two stitches so we're gonna go ahead and end round one by slip stitching into our first single crochet not the chain one but the first single crochet like that now we will start round two by chaining three now that chain three counts as a double crochet here and for the rest of the pattern so now we're going to put a double crochet into the next stitch and then the next stitch we are going to put two double crochets into the same stitch so you can see what we did there that shins that chain three counts as a double we have two double crochets in a row and then the next stitch is two double crochets into the same stitch and that's the repeat for round two so we're going to go ahead and repeat it again we're going to put one double crochet into the next two stitches and then the next stitch we'll put two double crochets into the same stitch all right we're gonna repeat it again one double crochet and to each of the next two stitches so there's one and two and then the next stitch we'll get two double crochets into the same stitch and that's the pattern we're going to repeat for round three so it'll be one double one double two doubles one double one double two doubles all the way around until you get back to your starting point all right I'm coming to the end of round two your last stitch should had two double crochets in it and then we're going to end around two by slip stitching into the top of our beginning chain three and now you should have a total of 56 stitches all the way around alright so we're going to start round three by chaining three remember that count is our first double crochet now we're going to put a double crochet into the next two stitches so counting in that chain three we have three double crochets in a row now the next stitch we're going to put two doubles into the same stitch so that is a repeat for round three we're going to put one double crochet into the next three stitches there's one two and three and then two double crochets into the next and then we're will repeat that again one double into the next three stitches so there's one two three and two doubles into the next and I'm just going to keep repeating that pattern all the way around until I get back to the beginning one double into the next three and then two doubles into the next okay I made it to the end of round three and you should have ended it with two double crochets in your last stitch and you should have a total of 70 stitches now so I'm going to end around three by slip stitching into my first chain three there the top of that chain three and now I'm going to start round four by chain and three which counts as our double crochet now i'm going to put counting that chain three i'm going to put one double crochet into the next three stitches so counting that chain three that'll be four in a row so i'm going to put one double crochet into the next three which one two and three so like I said captain that chain three you got four double crochets in a row and now the next stitch is going to get two doubles into the same stitch and that's the repeat now for Round four one double crochet into the next four stitches so there's one two three and four and then two double crochets into the next one double crochet into the next four stitches so there's one two three and four and then two doubles into the next so that's what I'm going to repeat now for Round four one double crochet into the next four and then two doubles into the next and y'all want to repeat that all the way around until I get back to my starting point okay I have made it to the end of round four in nice household 84 stitches and we are going to end by slip stitching into our chain three there at the beginning and now what we're gonna do is tie this off because since it's a towel it can't really be connected because it has to hang over be able to hang over here of a needle so what we're gonna do now is we're going to need four stitch markers I'm just going to use this piece of yarn and we're going to mark off the armholes so we're going to count over starting with this chain three at 12 stitches one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve put a stitch marker in that twelfth stitch stitch markers just kind of make it easier I think and now we're going to count the other way okay so here's we already counted this chain three so we're going to start with the next stitch and make it number one one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve put a stitch marker in that twelfth stitch we're marking off the armholes now or sleeve holes oh my my I'm fumbling around here please excuse me okay now what we're gonna do is we're gonna mark off some more here maybe if I ever get this in here oh my gosh that's embarrassing well that's good okay so now what I'm gonna do is that's the back part of the towel the dress top part it's a dress but the back part of the talent dress whatever you want to call it so now we're going to mark off some stitches for the armhole so we're gonna leave 18 we're gonna mark up 18 stitches so we do not count this one we count the next one over so this one's already marked one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen fourteen fifteen sixteen seventeen that's 18 put your stitch marker in the next one so we'll have 18 stitches between the stitch markers of the sleeve for the armhole hope this is all making sense and we're gonna do the same thing on the other side okay so now we're gonna start with the next one in mark off our sleeves so here is one sleeve there should be eight one armhole or sleep there should be 18 stitches in between those stitch markers there should be 24 in between these counting the ones that the stitch markers are in there should be 24 now we're going to start right over here on this side we're gonna do the other sleeve or the other armhole not counting the one that this stitch marker is in starting with the next one we count 18 okay so one two three four five six seven eight nine ten 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 put a stitch marker in that stich not the 18th one but the next one so now we're going to go ahead and need to count all the way around to make sure we have the correct amount of stitches between the stitch markers just to make sure so what we got here is this is what it looks like we should have 18 here not counting the stitches that are in between the stitch markers okay or not count 18 counting the stitches that are in between the stitch markers we do not count the ones that the stitch markers are in so 18 right here on both of this side both of these sides now in the back and the front counting the ones that the stitch markers and we should have 24 so in the front here I count this one as 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 because we're counting the one that the stitch markers in and then if you move over to the armhole you should have 18 not counting this one so 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 because you're not counting this one and then again counting the one with the stitch marker you should have 24 all the way over here counting the one with the stitch marker and then the other area you should have 18 so that's what I have that's what it looks like now what we're gonna do we will go to the sleeve areas later we're gonna start working we have to work the back of the dress separate from the front of the dress that way it hangs on your stove so we're gonna start here is the back of my dress here's the front of my dress I'm gonna start right here in the front of my dress I'm saying that this is the back because this is where the chain-3 is you know so I'm gonna make that my back this is my armhole area and right here is the front so I'm going to facing me just like this I'm gonna start my yarn right here into the first stitch that the stitch markers in okay so I'm gonna go ahead and start my yarn in there but I'm only gonna go into the back loop of it so I'm gonna go into the back loop of the stitch that my stitch markers in so back loop only go into that back loop only and we will start off by chain and 3 which counts as a double crochet like that and now I'm gonna go back into the same spot and I'm gonna work another double crochet only going through the back loop like that now I'm gonna work across I can take that stitch marker out now it's we don't need it now because we already have that stitch worked so that's gone get it out of your way now I'm going to work across these 24 stitches here in the front putting two double crochets in every stitch in the back loop only so we're going to call this round one or row one of the dress skirt okay row one of the dress skirt so back loop only and work two double crochets in it so there's one and then there's two jump to the next one back loop only two double crochets into the same stitch and this is what we're gonna do all the way across back loop only of the next one two double crochets just like that next one back loop only two double crochets so we're going to do this all the way across back loop only in the next two double crochets into the same stitch so I'm going to continue working two double crochets in the back loop only of each stitch until I get over here to my stitch marker remember this is Row 1 of the skirt so two doubles on each ditch just make sure you're working in the back loops oh and when you look there'll be that Ridge will be working in those front loops later but for now back loop only over here until you get to the stitch marker two doubles in every stitch okay I'm coming over here to the end and here is my stitch marker I want to go into the back loop of that stitch with the stitch marker so I'm gonna go ahead and take the stitch marker out but we don't need it anymore that just helped us mark all our stitches go into the back loop of that last stitch and put two double crochets in it that'll in row one of the skirt part and now you should have a total of 48 stitches so it'll look a little roughly that's fine that's what you want now Row 2 of the skirt is the repeat row now for the skirt part so we're going to chain 3 and turn our work so that chain 3 is going to count as a double crochet so now we're gonna work one double crochet in every stitch across we're going through both loops now no more going through one loop okay so go right here not into this very first stitch but the next stitch and double crochet so remember we're going through both loops and I'm just gonna work one double crochet in every stitch across until I get back to the other side just like this all the way one double in every stitch until I get all the way over here okay I'm coming over here to the end of round two of my skirt here make sure your that your last stitch is this you're going into the top of that chain three gotta make sure you get that and you still should have 48 stitches so now that's the kind of that's the repeat now so we chain 3 turn our work and what this is going to do is make a skirt on the front and then we will do the same on the back that way it can fold over your handle of your stove and then we'll put some ties on it but for now we're just going to continue working one double crochet in every stitch back and forth back and forth until we get at the link that we want it to be so we just we're just wrote Row three is just a repeat of Row 2 so we'll we did our chain 3 and we turn and we start our first double crochet not here but here it's the next stitch so again we're just repeating Row 2 for Row 3 one double in every stitch until you get to the other side 48 stitches and then you chain 3 in turn and repeat again okay I have done a total of 17 rows double 17 rows of the skirt starting from row one where we put two double crochets in every stitch that counts as one I've done 17 you can always make yours longer if you want what I'm gonna do now is I am going to clip this yarn tie that off like that now we've got the front side of our work facing us you can see because there is that row of we just went through the back loop but there is that row of front loops right there so what we're going to do now is go ahead and clean up all the edges right here along the sides in the bottom so I am gonna start right up here at the top see here where we went in to our very first back loop of that stitch go ahead and start your yarn right there I'm just going to start it by chaining one now what I'm going to do is evenly spaced out one single Kerch just evenly spaced out single crochets and down the side what I like to kind of go by rule of thumb is I like to try to put two single crochets to each one of these double crochets that are on the side now it's going to be really hard to see the stitches because you're working on the sides of these double crochets and these chain three spaces so I kind of just do my best to kind of just evenly spaced out two single crochets to every double crochet and I'm gonna do that all the way down all this is doing is just kind of cleaning up my edges a bit so they look a little little cleaner and yours is probably not gonna be exact this mine and that's fine the number of stitches you have now doesn't really matter as long as you do your best to evenly spaced out your single crochets so I am going to continue working cleaning up these edges and I'm going to go all the way down the side and I'm gonna meet you right down here at this first corner okay I've made it down here to the corner I've been evenly spacing out my single crochets so what I'm going to do in the corner stitch right up here is I'm going to put three single crochets into the corner this can help around the corner off and now I'm going to do one single crochet in every stitch across the bottom you'll be able to see these stitches pretty good because they're just the bottoms of the double crochet not the sides so I'm gonna continue working my one single crochet in every stitch until I get over here to my next corner all right I've made it to my next corner down here and I'm gonna do the same thing I'm gonna work three single crochets into that last corner over here and then I'm going to continue evenly spacing out my single crochets along the other side so just do your best like we did on the other side to try to evenly space out your single crochets does not have to be perfect or exactly like mine so I'm gonna continue this all the way up until I get right up here to the other side here okay I've made it all the way back up here to the other side and you see this big spot here that we put our first single crochet in through the back loop we're just going to end by slip stitching into that spot and then we're gonna clip that off okay so now the edges are all cleaned up nicely now we're gonna put the apron on it next so we need to start off with a chain so we can tie it on to our stove handle see because this is going to be one side and we're going to do the exact same thing we do over here we're gonna do it on this side and then when it folds over on your stove panel it's going to look like a dress but we need to have a chain that we can on both sides that we can tie it with so what we're gonna do so we're gonna start off with a chain of 30 okay just a chain of 30 and now we're going to be working in those loops front loops that we didn't go into before so with your chain of 30 on your hook go ahead and go in to the first loop there that we skipped this is how we need to have our work facing us okay go into it and single crochet like that and now we're going to single crochet one time in each one of those front loops that we skipped or that we didn't go into they're on around one of the skirt okay see I'm only going into that front loop that's what we want okay once you went all the way across there you should have 24 single crochets and then you got your chain of 30 now after your last single crochet don't tie off we're going to work a chain of 30 again can once you got your Shana 30 go ahead and tie it off just clip it your yarn you'll have to sew in those in a little bit later but now we'll continue working on the apron so we have 24 stitches across okay we are going to work in 16 of them okay trying to find my yarn here end of it so with your work facing you like this you count over one two three four and you start in the fifth one okay so one two three four we leave unmarked go into the fifth one both loops and start your yarn we're going to start by chain and three and we're going to go back into that same stitch and work a double crochet and then we're going to put two double crochets in every stitch over 16 stitches or until you have four stitches that remain so two doubles in every stitch this is row one of the apron so work across putting two doubles in every stitch until you make it to your last four stitches all right Ivan made it and I have four stitches left one two three four go ahead I made them unworked and now you should have a 32 stitches for the apron for Row one now Row two is just going to be the repeat row of the apron we're just going to chain three and turn our work and now we're just going to work one double crochet in every stitch so we don't go into this very first stitch here go into the next one and work a double crochet and one double in every stitch until you get to the end of the row this is row two of the apron we're working on all right I've made it to the end of Row two I still have my 32 stitches so I'm going to chain three and turn my work so now for Row three and the rest of the rows I'm just gonna repeat Row two it's just one double crochet in every stitch remember you were not starting in this very very first stitch but the next one and we're working one double crochet in every stitch across every time you get to the end of the row you'll have your 32 stitches and then you just chain three and turn and continue again working rows of one double crochet in every stitch all right I have done a total of 11 rows total of that's starting with the row where we put two double crochet in every stitch that counted is one I went all the way down to 11 if you want to do more that's completely up to you but I'm gonna go ahead and tie this off now and we are going to do the same thing we did we're gonna go around it and clean up all the edges like we did with the brown or the main part so I'm going to start right over here and I'm just going to start right here along the side actually I'm going to start in this first the single crochet where we put our first set of two double crochets so right there and I'm going to chain one now I'm gonna work evenly spaced out single crochets all the way down remember I usually try to work two single crochets to every double but it doesn't have to be exact just something like that you know just to get them evenly spaced out the best that you can you probably won't have the same number stitches that I do and that's fine because it's really hard to tell where your stitches need to go when you're working on the sides of these doubles like this you so I'm just going to continue working evenly spacing out my single crochets until I get down there to the first corner and that's where I will meet you meet up with you at all right I made it down to the first corner so in the corner I'm going to put three single crochets in the corner just around the corner and then I'm going to continue working one single crochet and every stitch across until we get to the other corner so we're pretty much just doing the same thing we did on the main part of the dress when I get to the other corner I'll just work three single crochets into that and then I'll continue working evenly spacing out my single crochets up the other side of the apron three corners or three single crochets here evenly spaced your single crochets up the side and I'll meet back up with you when we get back over here to the top of this side alright when you're make it up here to this side we're gonna go ahead an end by slip stitching there into that single crochet where we put our last two double crochet so right into there tie that off and now we can hide all the tails that we have that are like hanging around a bunch of them but now what we're gonna do really everything that we just did over here we're gonna do it right over here in between these two so it'll be the exact same on both sides one thing though if you do want to leave off the apron on the back sides and it's gonna be on the back that's up to you you can leave that part off and just have the chains do the chains across single crochet across and the change and then not have the apron on the back or you can make the both sides the exact same but we're just repeating what we did on the other side over here that way when it drapes over your so handle it'll be the same on both sides go ahead and get started for what we did if we can remember here now we just worked we have our spots marked off from before with our stitch markers remember that so we need to start into in this very first stitch but we have to do it in the back loop so go ahead and move that stitch marker and start in the back loop of it remember we're only in look working in the back loops of row one another skirt and then we chain three which counts as a double and then we go back into the same spot and work another double so we work two double crochets in every stitch across until we get to our next stitch marker but we're only working in the back loops because remember we have to go back later and work in those front loops and that's where we attach the apron so I'm only working in the back loops putting two double crochets into every stitch and it'll be across 24 stitches remember that and when you get to the end you'll have 48 and then you just do your 17 total rows that's just like we did over here remember that we just do the exact same thing that we did on the other side so I'm working two doubles in every stitch here on row 1 across 24 stitches and then Row 2 will just be a 1 double crochet in every stitch rows 2 through 17 will be 1 double crochet in every stitch you'll always have 48 stitches at the end of every row and then we would attach our apron the same way that we did on the other side so I'm going to go ahead and finish the back the same way I did the front ok I have finished my back and I chose not to put the apron part on the back I just did the strings and you know I did my chain of 30 and then I did my 24 single crochet across there on the front loops that we did that we skipped in the beginning and then I did my chain of 30 there if you want to attach the apron to the back to make it look like the front you're more than welcome to but I'm just going to leave it at that on the back now what I'm going to do is I'm going to go around the neck with some of my cream-colored and around the sleeves and then we will be finished so I'm just going to start right back here somewhere in the back along the neck any stitch is fine and I'm going to go through that first stitch and I'm going to do a chain of 1 and then I'm going to go in the same back in the same stitch and I'm going to do a single crochet so I'm going to work around the neck now putting one single crochet in every stitch all the way around the neck just clean up the edge a little bit you don't have you can make it the same color as your main portion of your dress if you want it's up to you but I'm just gonna continue all the way around working one single crochet in every stitch until I get back to my starting point all right I've made it back to my starting point on my neck and you should have a total of 42 stitches because that's what you started with but as long as you have somewhere close to that that's fine go ahead and by slip stitching into your first single crochet and then you can clip that yarn and then we'll have to hide that tail now let's go around the sleeves real quick now remember we are not going to attach the sleeves together it ties on your oven handle like this so these are not ever attached and that way you can untie it and take it off but what we're gonna do is just do some single crochet around what is supposed to be the sleeve it looks like this leave I guess so I'm going to start in the same stitch there as that single crochet that my first single crochet that my chain is in okay and I am going to chain one now I'm going to jump to the next stitch and single crochet and I'm going to put one a single crochet and every stitch across here okay I've made it to the other side and you should have 18 single crochets not counting that stitch that we started in and I'm just going to go ahead and end by slip stitching in the same stitch over here see the way we started that single crochet right there I'm gonna go into that stitch and slip stitch so you'll have 18 single crochets we're not going to count that slip stitch or that chain one as a stitch but like I said somewhere around there's fine yes you know doesn't have to be exact and now I'm gonna do this exact same thing turn it around right over here on this side of the sleeve alright there it is it's finished I think it turned out pretty cute now remember you just put it over your oven handle like this this is going on the back side of the handle it's going from the handle and then you use your ties on both sides to tie it on I think it's cute I love it no I forgot to hide a tail that's embarrassing but that's it that's all there is to it I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and if you make this I'd really love to see
