Every fall, I like to get a pumpkin and bake something with it. I like to crochet pumpkins, too. Well (long story short) I got an idea to make a pumpkin TP cover. This isn't the greatest picture, (phone pic) I don't have batteries for my camera. But, you can get an idea what it looks like, anyway. ;) Also, this hasn't been tested~ so if you find any mistakes please let me know! Thanks!
Side Note: This was made to fit over a 'double' roll of toilet paper, just 'FYI' ;)
WW yarn (I used Red Heart) probably a 3 oz. skein would be plenty for the orange and just a little bit for the green
