Crochet Fez Toilet Roll Cover

Sometimes you have an idea that you realise later was a stroke of genius.

Growing up in the 1970’s I have a fear of toilet roll covers, they usually involved a scary doll with a large knitted/crochet dress that covered the toilet roll.

There’s no reason why the idea can’t be updated though.  What’s toilet roll shaped?  A FEZ!

I have to admit that this idea did come to me whilst watching the Dr Who 50th Anniversary adverts in October/November 2013.

So after a couple of trial attempts I came up with the perfect pattern and voila… here is the end result.
