What a beautiful pink lace toilet paper cover. The cover is quick and fun to crochet as you hold two strands of worsted weight yarn. It is 10″ long and 5.5″ wide across the bottom. The basket is 4.25″ tall and will accommodate 2 double or triple rolls of toilet paper.
Do you love making toilet paper covers and crocheted baskets as much as I do? Many baskets and covers have been made by me over the years. My favorite is the Victorian Lace basket and all of the accessories that go with it. Then again I am pretty happy with the plaid toilet paper cover. Actually my all time favorite is the Santa Toilet paper cover, and I made an Elf toilet paper cover to go along with it!

Pictorial Instruction for High Back Post Half Double Crochet – h bp hdc
This is not the standard way of executing a BP HDC, but is how to execute for this basket…so I am calling it a High Back Post Half Double Crochet.
Use “L” Hook
Hold two strands of Pink yarn, ch 15 (foundation ch made)
Beginning Chains do not count as stitch unless otherwise noted.
hdc in 2nd ch from hook; (hdc in nxt st) 12x; 3 hdc in last st; going down opposite side of foundation ch; (hdc in nxt st) 12x; 2 hdc in last st; join w/slp st in 1st hdc made (30 hdc)
ch 1; 2 hdc in joining st; 2 hdc in nxt st; (hdc in nxt st) 11x; (2 hdc in nxt st) 4x; (hdc in nxt st) 11x; (2 hdc in nxt st) 2x; join w/SLP ST in 1st HDC made (38 hdc)
ch 1; 2 hdc in joining st; (2 hdc in nxt st) 2x; (hdc in nxt st] 14x; (2 hdc in nxt st) 5x; (hdc in nxt st) 14x; (2 hdc in nxt st) 2x; join w/slp st in 1st hdc made (48 hdc)
ch 1; hdc in joining st; 2 hdc in nxt st; (hdc in nxt st; 2 hdc in nxt st) 2x; (hdc in nxt st) 15x; (2 hdc in nxt st; hdc in nxt st) 5x; (hdc in nxt st) 14x; 2 hdc in nxt st; hdc in nxt st; 2 hdc in last st; join w/slp st in 1st hdc made (58 hdc)
ch 1; h bp hdc; in each st around; join w/slp st to beg. h bp hdc (58 h bp hdc)
Use “K” hook
(Hold the basket so that the outside of the basket is facing you until it is time to turn and execute the drop over lace. You should be looking at the ridge that was created at Round 5.
Round 6 -11:
ch 1 hdc in each st around; join w/slp st to beg. hdc ending off with pink and pulling up white at the join at the end of Round 12 (58 hdc)
ch 1,hdc in joining st and in each st around; join w/slp st to beg. hdc; end off with one strand of yarn and turn.
Drop Over Lace Edge
(Please use “G” hook for next step)
Using one strand only
ch 1 you should be looking at the inside of the basket, since you turned at the end of Round 12; sc in blo of joining st; ch 3; skp nxt st; * sc in blo of nxt st; ch3; skp nxt st;* Repeat between * * around; join w/st in beginning SC. (30 ch 3 arches)
slp st in 1st ch of ch 3 sp; ch 1; sc in/under ch 3 space; Shell in/under nxt ch 3 sp; *sc in/under nxt ch 3 sp; Shell in/under nxt ch 3 sp; * Repeat between ** around, joining w/slp st to beg. sc (15 fans; 15 SC)
(Note: all SC stitches will be skipped in this next sequence) *slp st to 1st trb of nxt shell; (ch 3, slp st in nxt trb) 3x;* repeat around; join w/slp st to beg slp st, end off. Weave in all ends.
Add two double or triple rolls of toilet paper to the basket. I think it would be pretty with a bit of satin ribbon woven into the beading area. I think this is such a pretty basket. I hope you enjoy!
