Crochet Pattern: Toilet Paper Caddy

Processed with MOLDIV

  Created as an add-on to the Toilet Paper Roll Cover, this cup shape pattern can be applied to other uses as well. Just give me some time to think on that.

  Both my Febreze and Glade air fresheners fit into the cup area but adjust as needed.

  You will be creating a double walled cup for support. You will work the outside by joining the end of your rows. Your color change will be where you fold in your project. The inside wall of the cup will act as the support.

Materials:

  • 3.5mm hook*
  • Stitch markers
  • Scissor
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton
    • White (Color A)
    • Black (Color B)

        *I tend to crochet tight and I like to go down in hook sizes when I can. Adjust as needed.

Gauge: Not necessary, but constantly keep checking the sizing with your air freshener.

Stitches:

MR – magic round

Ch – chain

Sc – single crochet

Sc inc – single crochet increase

BLO – back loop only

Sl st – slip stitch

FO – finish off

Before you start: Review working in the 3rd loop of the HDC. This causes the top of the HDC stitch to pop up, and out of the piece.

  Gauge is not necessary, but stitch count is. Your “tube” should be as even as possible.

Pattern:

  Start with Color A (white). Working in rounds. Use stitch marker as needed.

Row 1. MR. 6 sc. Close round with a sl st in the 1st sc. Ch 1 (6)

Row 2. 2 sc in each stitch around. Close round with a sl st in the 1st sc. Ch 1 (12)

Row 3. [1 sc, sc inc] around. Close round with a sl st in the 1st sc. Ch 1 (18)

Row 4. [2 sc, sc inc] around. Close round with a sl st in the 1st sc. Ch 1 (24)

Row 5. [3 sc, sc inc] around. Close round with a sl st in the 1st sc. Ch 1 (30)

Row 6. [4 sc, sc inc] around. Close round with a sl st in the 1st sc. Ch 1 (36)

Row 7. [5 sc, sc inc] around. Close round with a sl st in the 1st sc. Ch 1 (42)

   *Continue increasing if the base of your air freshener is wider

Row 8. BLO Sc around. Close round with a sl st in the 1st sc. Ch 1 (42)

  *You will start working up the side of the cup.

Row 9 through Row 26.  Sc around. Close round with a sl st in the 1st sc. Ch 1 (42)

Row 27. Hdc around. Close round with a sl st in the 1st hdc. Ch 1 (42)

   *Change to Color B (black). I prefer to FO color A, but it is possible to continue using it later.

Row 28. Working in the 3rd loop of the hdc, sc around. Close round with a sl st in the 1st sc. (42)

Row 29. Sc around. Close round with a sl st in the 1st sc. Ch 1 (42)

Row 30. BLO sc around. Close round with a sl st in the 1st sc. Ch 1 (42)

Row 31. Sc around. Close round with a sl st in the 1st sc. Ch 1 (42)

  *Change to Color A (white). FO color B. With a different color scheme, you can continue using color B as long as it is not visible through the cup.

  At this point, continue working in the round until you have completed the length necessary to fold the inside of the cup all the way until the bottom.

Row 32. HDC around. (42)

  *You can begin to check your project by folding in at round 30. You are creating a second wall to provide support for the cup. Your second color area should line up evenly.

  Repeat Row 32 until you have reached the bottom of your cup. If you stop halfway, your cup will have a ridge effect.

 You now have a free-standing double wall crochet cup.

To attach to the toilet paper cover:

  Choose the side of the cup that has your joins. We will hide them by attaching this part to the toilet paper cover. Using a tapestry needle and color A, weave color A yarn through both the toilet paper cover and cup. I stitched from the bottom of the cup up to the start of the black of the cup.
