I’ve needed a sewing machine cover for a long time
….good news! I finally made one.
It’s basically just a crocheted sewing machine blanket. It works great as just a drape over the machine but I wanted to close it up so I cut and sewed fabric for the sides. It also seemed fitting that there was a little bit of sewing involved in a sewing machine cover ( :
just in case anybody is interested in crocheting a sewing machine cover, I took notes so I could write up the pattern for you. It’s pretty customizable if your sewing machine is smaller or larger than mine (read pattern notes)
*Worsted weight yarn (I used Vanna’s Choice)
You’ll need a Main Color (MC) and 3 Contrasting colors (CC) for your chevron stripes
Gauge: 6sc’s and 8 rows = 2” square
My finished sewing machine cover measures 16 ½” wide and 26 ½” long.
Pattern Notes: If your sewing machine is smaller, then you could make this cover smaller by subtracting 6 stitches from your foundation chain…this will take away 2” from your sewing machine covers width. You can also make this cover wider by 2” by adding 6 st’s to the foundation ch.
Sewing Machine Cover
With MC Ch 50,
Row 1 – sc in 2nd ch from hk, sc in each ch across. (49)
Row 2 – Ch 1 and turn, *sc in next, hdc in next, dc in next, 3tc in next, dc in next, hdc in next, repeat from * 7 more times, sc in last st.
Row 3 – Ch 1 and turn, sc2tog, sc in next 2, 3sc in next, sc in next 2, *sc3tog, sc in next 2, 3sc in next, sc in next 2, repeat from *6 more times, sc2tog.
Row 4 – Repeat Row 3
Row 5 – Ch 3 and turn, tc2tog, dc in next, hdc in next, sc in next, hdc in next, dc in next, *tc3tog, dc in next, hdc in next, sc in next, hdc in next, dc in next, repeat from *6 more times, tc2tog.
Row 6 – Ch 1 and turn, sc in each st across.
Row 7 – Repeat Row 6
Repeat Rows 2 through 7 two more times. Then continue working sc rows until the cover wraps nicely around your sewing machine.
After cover is long enough Fasten off and weave in your ends.
Notes: to work this pattern up a bit faster you could work dc’s instead of sc. I think it would also be fun to just continue the stitch pattern (Row’s 2 through 7) throughout the whole cover with lots more Chevron Stripes in lots more colors!
