Crochet Your Own Instant Pot Cover
The new kitchen appliance rage is the Instapot. For many of us, the Instant Pot will become something on the counter as a permanent fixture. Daniel is the cook of the house and is looking forward to getting his soon.
There’s not a lot of patterns out there for a cover for these appliances. So this is why we are creating this challenge.
Running from Jan 28, 2018 to 11:00 pm ADT on March 15th, 2018.
- Create and crochet a cover for your Instant Pot or Slow Cooker. There is no requirement on which size Instant Pot you use.
- You may use an existing pattern you have found or self create your own design.
- The cover can be free-formed as we will not require you to submit a pattern with your picture.
- Optional: If you want to write a pattern and submit it to us, we will make a separate pattern with your name on it as the designer and list it on The Crochet Crowd Website.
- Each cover you make is classified as an entry. If you make two or more identical covers, ensure you submit us photos with all of them in one photo to prove there are multiples.
Anything kitchen related should be 100% cotton based. Cotton is heat resistant and can be washed in a washing machine. It’s why dishcloths are in 100% cotton. We recommend Bernat Handicrafter or Lily Sugar’n Cream Yarns as they are 100% cotton. Home grown in the USA, spun in the USA and dyed in Canada.
