Great Granny Rounds Stool Cover… Free Pattern Review!

You know you are a Crochet Addict when you start to recover furniture with crochet….  I have two kitchen stools that have seen better days!!!  For quite some time, I have wanted to make stool covers for them or even paint them to make them look better!!  I am just a little to cheap to buy new fancy stools…

I finally had a free moment to start a new project…I do have several crochet projects going, but I wanted to make something I could make in one evening…  I just love the feeling of a finished project!!!  I walked in my kitchen for a cup of tea and saw my two sad stools,,, The were worn and plain…  I did a quick search on Ravelry for Crochet Granny Stool Covers and found a few…  I chose a great Free Crochet Pattern for a Granny Mandala by Crochet with Raymond…  They showed several ways to use this Mandala, one way was to cover a stool…  I am so glad I found this pattern… It was easy to read and fun to make!!!  I used my stash of yarn and made one cover in just a couple of hours!!  I finished the second one last night!!!  I am so happy with the results and my new crafty looking stools…

 

**Update**  I have had many questions about how I finished these off to fit… so here is what I did…

I Made the cover slightly shy of the size of the stool, then I made 3 rows without increasing. I then made one row without the chain 1 spaces to make it a bit smaller and then I Sc, Ch 2, Sk 2 around to make an area to lace through. I made a long chain and then weaved it through and tightened it up…

When my Granddaughter came over this morning.. She spotted them right away… She said the funniest thing… “Grandma, those look like targets I could use to shoot my bow and arrow”… I laughed to myself and agreed with her… She is 6,,, What a great mind!  What to you think… Would you make these for your kitchen??

 

Happy Crocheting!

  1. Thank you for posting these. I have a craft room with stools around a table and have been wanting to crochet covers for them. You have inspired me to get started.

  2. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE…my stools are brand new and I so want to make these!!!

  3. How did you finish it off? By that I mean did you decrease to fit under the stool top, or did you weave a long chain through it to tighten and tie?

    • Yes both… I Made the cover slightly shy of the size of the stool, then I made 3 rows without increasing. I then made one row without the chain 1 spaces to make it a bit smaller and then I Sc, Ch 2, Sk 2 around to make an area to lace through. I made a long chain and then weaved it through and tightened it up… Have fun!
