how-to

Kitsch shouldn't be limited to crochet, should it?

I did up a knit version of the toilet paper roll cover.

My lesson for this pattern is that I'm not good with random. I tried to stagger the decreases so they wouldn't form lines, but the end result was just lumpy and bumpy, with lines. So I ripped back, and did wedges. Much better.

This one is going to my mother.
