Toilet Seat Cover Crochet Pattern

Howdy, all! Wednesday is my cleaning day. I know I am the strangest woman in the world, but I love to clean my bathroom. While this is a constant source of puzzlement for others, I'm sure my guests and family appreciate it. However, I noticed yesterday that my toilet seat cover had developed a blowout:



Well, I thought to myself that I could either go out to Big Lots and drop another $5 on a cover....or I could use this as motivation to make my own. So I did:


No offense, Big Lots, but I like mine better. I left mine plain because I have a really noisy shower curtain and I didn't want to crowd it. However, feel free to add your own embellishments to yours!

So I wrote out the pattern for this week's blog.



And now, without further ado:

Toilet Seat Cover Crochet Pattern


Materials:

J Hook
Bernat Premium Worsted Weight Yarn in Dark Green or your choice in worsted weight yarn

Ch 8.

Row 1: Hdc in third chain from hook. 2 hdc in next st. 1 hdc in next st. 2 hdc in next st. 4 hdc in next st. Now flip the chain over, so you're working on the opposite side of your foundation chain. 2 hdc in next st. 1 hdc in next st. 2 hdc in next st. 2 hdc in next st. Join by sl st in top of ch 2.

NOTE: You are going to be working your increases only on the curved ends of your piece. That would be the top and bottom of the piece below. Work only hdc in sides. You're working to get an oval here, not a circle.


Row 2: Ch 2. Hdc Inc in each stitch of the curved ends of your oval. Hdc in the one stitch in sides. Join by sl st in top of ch 2.
Row 3: Ch 2. Hdc Inc in every other st of the ends. Hdc in sides. Your sides will be getting longer. Join by sl st in top of ch 2.
Row 4: Ch 2. Hdc Inc in every third st of ends, and hdc in sides. Join by sl st in top of ch 2.
Row 5: Ch 2. Hdc Inc in every fourth st of ends, and hdc in sides. Join by sl st in top of ch 2.
Row 6: Ch2. Hdc Inc in every fifth st of ends, and hdc in sides. Join by sl st in top of ch 2.

Now your piece should be shaping up:



Row 7 - 8: Ch 2. Hdc Inc only THREE TIMES in each end. Imagine your ends are half circles. Inc where the marks are below. Hdc elsewhere and in sides. Join by sl st in top of ch 2.


Row 9 - 15: Ch 2. Inc only as needed each round until the piece covers the top of the toilet lid as you desire. You no longer have to do increases only in the ends. Now just do an increase whenever you feel your hook is having to reach a bit. For my lid, I stopped after row 15. Join by sl st in top of ch 2


Row (16?): Ch 2. Hdc in each st around. Join by sl st in top of ch 2.
Row 17: Ch 2 Hdc Decrease in every fifth st. Join by sl st in top of ch 2.
Row 18: Ch 2 Hdc Decrease in every fourth st. Join by sl st in top of ch 2.
Row 19: Ch 2 Hdc Decrease in every third st. Join by sl st in top of ch 2.
Row 20: Ch 2 Hdc Decrease in every other st. Join by sl st in top of ch 2. Fasten off.

Ta Da!
