This free crochet pattern is for a textured measuring tape cover. This pattern is made from 2 small circles using mostly double crochet, front post double crochet, and single crochet stitches, and Shine Sport yarn from WeCrochet and includes a video tutorial.
After crocheting an easy measuring tape cover, I knew I had to crochet modifications of my pattern. Why? Cause they are fun and fast to crochet. They make the ideal gift and to be honest, I need a lot of them. They seem to be all disappearing after a while. Do they get feet? I don’t understand them. LOL
Since they are so fast to crochet, I made 2 more versions of the easy measuring tape cover. And here you can find the textured cover version. I think it might be my favorite. I just love how the front post double crochet provides so much extra texture and dimension.

Crocheting Measuring Tapes
Crocheting measuring tapes are so easy and fun, I don’t know why I never made them before and started with them much earlier. I literally designed all 3 patterns in one evening and finished them in one sitting while watching a very interesting Hallmark Channel Show.

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.
