This free crochet pattern is for a lacy measuring tape cover. This pattern is made from 2 small circles using mostly double crochet, and single crochet stitches, and Shine Sport yarn from WeCrochet and includes a video tutorial.
Every crocheter or crafter needs a beautiful measuring tape. As Spring is just around the corner flowers are starting to bloom everywhere. So this inspirational lacy measuring tape cover has a flower in the center as the main attraction. Since it’s lacy, it allows the flower of the lacy crochet pattern to blend in or stand out, depending on the color of the inserted measuring tape.
Whether you are a beginner or a more experienced crocheter, this pattern is made in just under 30 minutes and makes the perfect quick and fun project. If you love this pattern, you’ll likely also love my other two modifications of this pattern, which you can see below.

You can truly use any yarn you want. But I prefer using cotton yarn for my measuring tape covers as they are more durable that way. I used Shine Sport yarn as it has really bold and beautiful colors. The ideal thickness for these covers is a yarn that is sport-weight or thinner. I would likely not go heavier in yarn as you won’t be able to crochet many stitches.
