4th Of July Apron

Lion Brand® Cotton-Ease®


14 sts + 10 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in hdc. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


Beginning ch does not count as an hdc throughout the pattern.

Beg at lower edge of Apron, with A, ch 52.
Row 1: Work 2 hdc in 3rd ch from hook, hdc in each ch across to last ch, 2 hdc in last ch - 52 hdc at the end of this row.
Beg ch does not count as a st.
Row 2: Ch 2, turn, 2 hdc in first st, hdc in each st across to last st, 2 hdc in last st - 54 hdc at the end of this row.
Rows 3-13: Rep Row 2 - 76 hdc at the end of Row 13.
Note: Piece should measure about 22 in. (56 cm) across at Row 13.
Next Row: Ch 2, turn, hdc in each st across.
Rep last row until piece measures 15 in. (38 cm) from beg.
Do not fasten off, but continue to Edging below.
Edging: Work sc evenly spaced around entire outside edge, working 3 sc in each corner; join with sl st in first sc. Fasten off.

With B, ch 51.
Row 1: Hdc in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch across - 49 hdc at the end of this row. Beg ch does not count as a st.
Row 2: Ch 2, turn, hdc in each st across.
Rep Row 2 until piece measures 7 1/2 in. (19 cm) from beg. Fasten off.


Join A with sl st at one top corner of Apron.
Ch for about 28 in. (71 cm) or desired length.
Row 1: Hdc in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch across. Join with sl st to top corner of Apron. Fasten off.
Make a second tie on opposite top corner of Apron.
With C, sew Pocket to Apron with large straight sts. With C, embroider 2 straight sts to make 'V's on Pocket and Apron as desired.
Weave in ends.

This is a really easy project! I made this for my mom,and it has super easy steps. I changed the colors a bit! This is a great project for people who are new to crocheting.
