Anyone ever knit a cover for their mixer? It's big enough that it sits out on my counter and I want to keep it clean and less noticeable. Love to have someone share their pattern or website. Thanks!

Gee, I have one too. Problem is I use mine so much I never cover it. I even have some extra parts that I use just to make craft clays and the like.
I will have to think about a pattern for this one.

I would love the pattern to! Mine has to stay in the basement. Because my counter is so small. I have to really wash it it every time I bring it up so mine is more for practical then pretty but sure would like a pattern.

Would you guys make once to cover the shape or an overall cover like a toaster cover? It could go as far as zipping it in the back :)

I could see it getting fancy! :D

I have mine on my table.... for now. I need to get a second table, in the kitchen. Like a work table. The one i had I took it to my bedroom to use with my sewing machine, but now it's COVERED in yarn! LOL In baskets and space savers... there's yarn every where really.


Anyhoo, back to the kitchen aid. Mine is kinda out there... it's a pink one though so it looks pretty out on my black table with my black and white checkered floor. :)

I would like one as well. In all of me searching on the internet I have not come across any so far. Mine sits in the corner of my kitchen counter. I have been looking for something to cover it and to dress up the kitchen a little bit.

I can understand you wanting to make the cover yourself but I went to the Kitchenaid web site and ordered the one they make. It's quilted with piping and a large pocket. You have a choice of color as well.

Hi just a thought what about if u knitted or crochet a rectangle bag that has 2 squares on either side with a strip running between them for the width that way u could alter for the size that u want u could also jazz it u to suit your décor as well

Great ideas everyone! Now I have to decide if I design one myself or order on from Kitchen Aid. :)

I made a cover for mine and absolutely love it! I adapted a basic hat pattern. I did mine in a 1x1 rib stitch. I also covered my toaster and can opener. I used sugar and cream cotton; I also hung pot holders and dish clothes made with the same cotton against the wall under the cubboards for decoration (and use).

I'll check into posting the pattern in here, so everyone can have a copy. Right now it's a dox so I'd have to resave as pdf inorder to share, but will do that today.

Why on Earth would someone want to hide their KitchenAid mixer? I consider mine to be a work of art :)

Oh, Please. Please do. I have a Cuisinart, because my DH, went to bed bath and beyond when Kitchen Aid was on sale but he checked out the Cuisinart and it had more power so he purchased it. It is bigger than the Kitchen Aid and not as nice looking so I really need a cover. Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I made on from Sirdar boa (it was on offer for £1 a ball) and the fluffy rectangle took 2 balls. I also lined it with part of a cheap pillow case.
