New design - Toilet Paper Cover

I couldn't find very many "Toilet Paper Covers" on-line for free, esp ones that are basic and can be adapted to fit any color scheme or Holiday time of year so I made one up myself! I made this one for Christmas but you can do it really in any color combination and it's easy enough to whip up in an afternoon.

If you'd like to make this, feel free to use my pattern! It has not been tested yet so please let me know if you find any errors!


Please do not copy this pattern or sell it as your own! You MAY NOT sell copies of this pattern on eBay, etsy or any other on-line forum. You MAY, however, sell the actual item made with this pattern.

Materials:

Crochet Hook Size G

This was made to fit a double roll of charmin toilet paper. To make it smaller, use a smaller hook and/or smaller yarn.
