Crochet Tissue Cover

To save money on Kleenex when my children were little, for blowing little noses to wiping dribbles and messy fingers, I would substitute toilet tissue. To keep it handy, I came up with this hat to cover the roll.

Finished tissue hat.

Approximate Time: a couple hours

Supplies:

  • 2 oz 4 ply yarn in color of your choice ($.75)
  • 1 artificial flower, ribbon bow, or choice of trim ($.50)
  • 1 roll toilet tissue ($.50)
  • 1 size H crochet hook

Steps:

  1. Starting at top of hat : Ch 20 Sl St into the first chain to form a ring.

    (Work all rounds in back loop of stitches only to create details shown in photo.)

    Round 3. DC in next st, 2 DC in next St, *DC in next 2 sts, 2DC in next St. Repeat from * around. Sl St, Ch 3. (50 Sts)

    Rows 4-9 will form the side of the hat.

    Repeat Round 4 five more times. (Each row will be 50 DC)

    On last row, Sl St into Ch 3 from the beginning of the row. Finish off and weave end into the hat.
