This free crochet pattern is for an easy measuring tape cover. This pattern is made from 2 small circles using single crochet stitches and Shine Sport yarn from WeCrochet and includes a video tutorial.
A few weeks ago, my amazing friend Claire made me this gorgeous beaded measuring tape. I’m seriously in love with it. So much so that it inspired me to make my own crocheted measuring tape covers. Yes more than one, cause let’s be real. Crocheters need a measuring tape in every pouch, bag or purse. Just in case. LOL
So I grabbed this beautiful yarn called Shine, sport weighted, from WeCrochet and it was perfect. It’s soft, shiny, and the perfect thickness. And I started designing not just one but 3 different measuring tape covers. Here you will find the first version, which is easy and the ideal beginner crochet project. Below you will find the links to the textured and lacy patterns also.

Crocheting Measuring Tapes
Measuring Tapes can be so plain. So crocheting some cute and fun covers for them is the ideal solution. It makes me smile every time I grab my crochet hook pouch to pull out my measuring tape. And of course, designing 3 different versions is only the beginning. I can see myself creating so many different versions, including animal measuring tape covers. How cute would those be?

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.
