I have so many of these tape measures and usually buy this 3 pack from Amazon. My kids are always taking them, then hiding them in secret places, or I leave them somewhere. Regardless, I lose a lot of them.
I’m hoping by covering them it will stop me from losing them, although I guess it does make them more attractive to my kids.
Hook: US H/8 5.00mm
Needle for weaving in ends
Yarn Worsted Weight (approx. 11 yds or 10 meters)
This pattern is customized for the tape measures pictures (the ones I bought from Amazon).
Crochet Pattern (Make 2)
Round 1: 8 SC in magic circle = 6 SC
Round 2: Make 2SC in each stitch around = 16 SC
Round 3: *2 SC in stitch, 1 SC in next stitch* repeat until end = 24 SC
Round 4: SC in back loop of each stitch around = 24 SC
Leave long tail for sewing together.
Using the tapestry needle, sew the 2 pieces and measuring tape together, leaving a small opening where the measuring tape will be pulled from.
