Mini Cabled Toilet Tissue Cover

by Linda

[Mini Cabled Toilet Tissue Cover] I love these tiny cables, more like a cabled rib actually, inspired by a similar pattern seen on the web. I decided to work it up into a toilet tissue cover.

  1. Beginning at lower edge, cast on 56 sts, loosely.
  2. Work 4 rows of k1, p1 ribbing.
  3. Continue to work in rib pattern, but increase 1 st in every second knit stitch and in final stitch - *k1, p1, k1, m1 (make one) in same st, p1* ending k1 - total 71 sts.
  4. Wrong side - *p1, k1, p2, k1*, repeat to end of row, end p1.
  5. Right side - *k1, p1, cr2, p1* across, ending k1.
    cr2 - Cross2 - skip first st, knit into second st on needle but leave st on needle, then knit first (skipped) st, then slip both sts off needle together.
  6. Wrong side - *p1, k1, p2, k1*, repeat to end of row, end p1.
  7. Repeat these last two rows 11 more times (12 cable twists total), end ready to work next right side row.
  8. *K1, p1, k2tog, p1*, repeat across, ending k1. - 57 sts
  9. *P1, k1* across, ending p1.
  10. *K1, k2tog, p1* across, ending k1. - 43 sts
  11. P1, *k1, p2* across.
  12. *K2tog, p1* across, ending k1. - 29 sts
  13. *P1, k1* across, ending p1.
  14. Knit first st, k2tog across rest of row. - 15 sts
  15. Purl across.
  16. Knit first st, k2tog across rest of row. - 8 sts
  17. P2tog across row. - 4 sts
  18. Break yarn, leaving a long enough length to sew top and back seams, thread through 4 remaining sts, sew top and back seam.
