A touch of summer evening. Without the mosquitos.
Dimensions: To fit your roll of toilet paper. The sample measures 4.75" in diameter by 4.75" high (12cm by 12cm)
Supplies:Hook: To give a fabric you like with the yarn you're using. The sample was made with a US H8/5mm hook.
Yarn needle: To weave in ends
Stitch markers: safety pins, bobby pins, scraps of yarn - at least one, possibly more as needed (If you buy official stitch markers, be sure to get split rings or safety pin types. Unbroken ring markers are good for knitting, but not for crochet.)
Toilet paper roll: Yep. This is more couture toilet roll fashion. Custom made to fit that particular roll.
Yarn: White, beige, and brown.
If your roll of toilet paper is larger, you may need more yarn.
Marshmallow toilet paper roll cover
The basic idea of making a circle is that you increase the number of stitches in each round by the number of stitches that you had in the first round. So if you have 7 USsc in the first round, the second round will have 14, and the third round will have 21, and the fourth round will have 28 and so on. You do this by working 1 stitch into a certain number of sc from the previous round, then working 2 sc into the next stitch. So if you have finished the 5th round, you have 35 stitches, and you want to increase to 42. You would work four sc in a row, then work 2 sc into the next sc, then four more sc, then another increase.
Use common sense, though. Put the circle down occasionally. If it is cupping, you need to work more increases. If it is ruffling, you need to work fewer.
And do NOT be afraid to frog. It's just yarn.
Graham cracker mat
This is a simple mat, alternating front-loop-only and back-loop-only stitches to create a slightly bumpy texture. The mat will be largely hidden, so feel free to substitute rows of straight sc if you prefer.
With beige, chain an even number of stitches, about as wide as you want the graham cracker mat to be. The sample was 26 chains, for a mat that's 6" wide.
This is worked as a simple solid granny square until it's slightly larger than the roll of toilet paper, but smaller than the graham cracker mat. (If you want, you can use back post dc for the last round to give some texture.)
With brown, chain 4, join with a sl st in the first chain to form ring.
Block pieces as desired. Assemble s'more: graham cracker, chocolate, marshmallow. Admire.
So there you have it. A toilet paper cover that's just a bit of summer, even on the coldest day.
