Lately I've seen so many cute crocheted aprons that I decided to make one.
I used some leftover yarn from a sock monkey blanket I made 3 years ago.....look how CUTE!
I used the Happy Hooker's Crochet Stitch n' Bitch book for the monkey face pattern.*
I had just enough yarn to finish it!
If any crocheter is interested in how I did this...here you go:
For the body:
I used an "I" hook and crocheted 8 granny squares. (I did one solid so the face would show up.)
I attached the squares with slip stitch.
I went around the entire apron with sc to give it a nice edge.
I did NOT make a waistband.
For the ties:
I chained 130 for the first tie and then crocheted across the top of the apron, attaching the chain as I went, like how you did in the shamrock garland.
Then, I chained 130 on the other side for the other tie.
Turn and sc across.
Turn, sc across. I would have done it three times but ran out of yarn.
*For the face, I used an H hook instead of the one listed in the book.
