Free Crochet Pattern – Cat Tissue Box Cover

Crochet Cat Tissue Box Cover Free Pattern

I don’t know about you but I’ve never found a tissue box that fits in with my toilet. So I decided to change that and make a cover which will always look good there.

Funny, I don’t have many cat art around the house. Probably because Tommy (my tabby) is decorative enough.

Why not a cat cover then? What do you think, does it look good in my toilet?

This cover is for a 12 cm X 11 cm X 12 cm / 4.7″ X 4.3″ X 4.7″ box. If you have a different box just add / remove chains to the first row of the body and / or add / remove rows for the length.

    Dear MysteriousCats,

    not everybody of us has access to facebook and some of us don’t want it. I really like your tissue box and am able to copy it without a certain pattern, but I know people who wouldn’t be able to do so. It would be very nice of you to give those people access, too.
    Have a nice day,
    Boxi

      Hi Boxi!
      I agree, actually I don’t have a personal Facebook page myself.
      So anybody who asks politely I will send the pattern as I’ve already done it.
      I’m trying (really hard) to make a living out of my patterns (which I don’t) and Facebook is a great way to spread the word. Hope you understand…

    Hi, I don’t actually have a Facebook account but I would love to make this for my sister who has a gorgeous cat (not red, though!). Would you send me the pattern? If not, is there anywhere I can but it? Cheers! Sue.
