Grilling Apron Crochet Pattern

In our home, the kitchen is located on the main floor and the grill is located out back, and down a flight of stairs. Depending on what you’re cooking, carrying all of the necessary grilling accoutrements in one load (not to mention a plate or platter) can be cumbersome or flat-out impossible.

How to make an apron for grilling

This Grilling Apron pattern is equipped with a sturdy strap, four medium sized pockets, and one large pocket to aid in all your grilling needs. The medium pockets are great for your meat thermometer, cheese singles, to hold your beverage while you flip the burgers or baste your meat, a cell phone, or whatever else you fancy. The large pocket is plenty large enough for either a bottle of BBQ sauce, your favorite dry rub, tongs, etc.

Since this is using Comfy Worsted, a delicious blend of cotton and acrylic from WeCrochet, we can wash the apron as often as needed.

Materials:

Comfy Worsted yarn (cotton acrylic blend)
-approx. 565 yards

Crochet hook in size G/4mm

Gauge: 14 sts x 14 rows = 4” square

Pattern Notes:

For this pattern we are using the Thicket (Suzette) Stitch – tutorial here

Start with Foundation Single Crochet (an alternate is included in the pattern)

The turning chain does not count as a stitch.

  1. This apron is just what I need. Not for grilling, but, since I have limited mobility I can fill up the pockets with the items I need for whatever I am doing. This will save me from making several trips to get everything that I need. This is great! Thank you.
  2. This is awesome! I'm putting together a post at the moment about summer crochet and this is for sure going in there. Thanks!
