Yay! This is the ninth post of the year for the 2017 GrannySpiration Challenge!

This month, I am sharing a fun tissue box cover. I wanted to share this one last month, but I couldn’t get around to working it up in time to share, so I saved it for this month. This is a great project to work up as a teacher gift, or to decorate your desk if you work in an office, or as I have used it, in my bathroom (even though it doesn’t match my current color scheme).

Materials:
- Scraps of Lightweight #3 Yarn - I used Baby Bee’s Sweet Delight in Toy Elephant Gray, Naked Cream, Baby Sage and Chocolate Brown
- G6/4mm Crochet Hook
- #18 Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends

Material Notes:
Yarn Alternatives: Anne Geddes Baby Yarn, I Love This Sport Weight Yarn

I suggest going up to a 4.5mm crochet hook - see Pattern Notes below.

Time Spent:
I worked my cover over two days, for a total of about 3 hours, 45 minutes.

Measurements:
Fits a Kleenex box that measures 4.25” Wide by 5.13” Tall on one pair of sides, 4.38” Wide by 5” Tall on the other pair of sides and 17.25” in circumference with a 4.38” wide top.
