  1. This is not a toilet seat cover, it’s a toilet lid cover. Very disappointing.

  2. Re the knitted toilet seat cover, I saw some site online about using the herringbone stitch for a casing. Does anyone have any ideas if that might work?

  3. I saw before.Looking for toilet tank to knit or .

  4. Trudy du Plooy says

    I was looking for the Seat round seat cover not the top cover of the seat for the toilet.

  5. I love this set! It reminds of grandma’s house when I was a kid xxxxx years ago! I’m going to make one….no a bunch for gifts!

  6. A casing stitch is a stitch which forms a little tube which is used to pull a draw string through (as in a draw string bag). It is used a lot in crochet (say when you crochet a bikini but don’t want the edges to sag, you’d pull some elastic through the casing to keep it all tight). Stitchionaries will have instructions. I don’t have any handy right now but go to my site and I’ll try and find the right book for you (I saw this somewhere recently).

  7. Does any know what a “casing stitch” is? The pattern calls for this, but I can’t find anyone who knows what it is.

  8. omg – i want to make this just to freak out the kids!!!

  9. I admire who ever took the time to do this. a LOT of work and it’s beautiful
