Stethoscope Cozy Crochet Pattern

Cozy Free Crochet Pattern


At the beginning of this semester I noticed something, my stethoscope was really cold when I threw it around my neck. Besides being really unpleasant for me I figured this must be very unpleasant for it too. I mean think about how hard it works all day, then at the end of the day is tossed into a bag cold and lonely.  So I decided to make my little work buddy it’s very own sweater.

This is a great project for getting rid of that yarn stash, I used some yarn that I had left over from a previous project, it’s silky soft and I loved the color. I also worked mine in two colors and my pattern is written for a solid color, I think that you should be able to figure out how to add stripes. If your stethoscope has a long forked section just add a couple more rows on the closure flap to make it fit.  This pattern is very customizable and would make a great gift for your favorite nurse or nursing student.

Materials:

Sport weight yarn

4mm Crochet hook

Velcro

Snap fastener


Abbreviations:

SC – single crochet

DC – double crochet


Directions:

Row 1 – Chain 20

Row 2 – SC in the second chain from the hook and continue to SC to the end.

Row 3 – Chain 1 and turn, SC in each stitch to the end

Row 4 – Chain 3 turn and DC in to 14 SC

Row 5 – Chain 3 (counts as the first DC) turn and DC in to each stitch to the end, slip stitch into the 3rd chain at the beginning of the row to join.

*This will make a V opening at the bottom so the bell will fit through the bottom of the tube*

You will have a V opening at the bottom with a “tail” to close it

Row 6 – Chain 3 DC into first DC. Working in the round DC in each DC, joining each round with a slip stitch into the 3rd chain of the first DC

Continue Row 6 until the length of your tube reaches from the bell of the stethoscope to the fork of the tubing of stethoscope.

Last Round – 2 DC into the first stitch, DC into the next 6 stitches, 2 DC into the next stitch , DC into the next 6 stitches. Join row with a slip stitch into the 3rd chain of the 1st DC. (Total 16 sticthes)


Closure Flap

SC in the next 8 DC’s. Chain 1 and turn

SC in each of the 8 SC’s. Chain 1 and turn. Continue for 5 rows.

Tie off and break thread.

Repeat for the other 8 DC’s

This creates 2 “flaps” that when folded will close over the binurals and hold the sweater on.


Finishing

Single crochet into every stitch along bottom opening of the sweater in a contrasting color.

Single crochet into every stitch along the edge of the two flaps with a contrasting color.

Sew a fastener on the flaps. I used Velcro feel free to try something else because it took forever to get it sewn on. I think next time I may use a cute button and make a button hole.

Sew a snap fastener on the little “tail” at the bottom opening closes snuggly like so. This keeps your V opening from gaping open and getting caught in stuff as your go running by.
