It’s been a few years since I crocheted anything. I got my feet wet with a simple dish cloth and then started on THIS PATTERN I found on Ravelry (It’s free). I made a few mistakes and ended up with one less shell than the pattern called for, but in the end, I think it turned out super cute. The first few double crochet rows are actually triple/treble crochets. I did crochet around the border, but didn’t add the picot stitch to the bottom as I really like the way the shell stitch at the bottom looks. I used 100% cotton yarn I picked up years ago for dish cloths. If the apron gets soap on it, I’m not worried since it’s so simple to wash. If you make one, I would suggest drying it outside the dryer so that it doesn’t shrink.
Since my sink is in the kitchen island, the soap is really visible, so I like that it’s is a little dressed up!
I also tried the apron on a different soap bottle and it fit great on that one too.
What I love about crocheting is that it’s a relatively cheap hobby. You just need crochet hooks and yarn. And you can crochet pretty much anywhere. I can easily watch a simple tv show while crocheting. And I love multi-tasking!
