As seen on Knitty Gritty, this is an entire bathroom set including bathmat, washcloth, toilet paper cozy, and toilet tank mat. Knit mainly in garter stitch and using short rows for shaping, the bathmat and washcloth are soft, comfortable, and absorbent. The toilet tank “bamboo” mat is surprisingly simple, with vertical stripes created using a slip-stitch pattern. The TP cozy pattern for this set is not the same as the Crochet Sushi Roll as seen on Crochet Me or the Knit Sushi TP Cozy from M.K. Carroll’s blog.

The pattern calls for Tulip White and Ink Black, but the finished projects shown in the episode used Bone and Fern, because TV cameras have difficulty with stark black and white.

This project is worked in 100% cotton at a tight gauge. Some test knitters reported this being hard on their hands - if you think it may be hard on yours, you may want to consider substituting a worsted weight yarn with more give and bounce, such as Knit Picks Comfy Worsted Yarn, Lion Brand Wool-Ease, or Red Heart Super Saver.

For the bathmat and washcloths: If you live in a humid climate, you may want to substitute a yarn that dries faster, perhaps an acrylic or acrylic blend.

The current PDF available for download is very ‘bare bones’ - no schematics, photos, or charts.
