Rosettes Tissue Box Cover

Image of Rosettes Tissue Box Cover Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

This tight fitting long tissue box cover starts off with making 20 squares of the same size. 8 of them are Stitched together to form the top and the other 12 are stitched together to form the sides. The top has 2 rounds of single crochet and the sides have a round of sc and half double crochet on each side. The top is stitched to the bottom with a different type of slip stitch technique that forms a small ridge along the top outside edge of the box. It is fun and fairly easy to make and can be completed in few evenings.

Final Assembly
Stitch top to bottom with wrong sides facing each other. Line up the top to the bottom so that the corner 2 sc match up with 2 of the hdc that are in the ch2 space. Insert hook in front loop, from front to back, of the top piece and insert hook in back loop, from front to back, of corresponding hdc of bottom piece, yo, pull through both loops on hook. Do this for each stitch around. Join w/slst to first sl st. Fasten off and weave ends into back side of work.

NOTE: I used just a small scrap of lemon. About 1/2 skein of the Aspen and about 2/3 skein of the Medium Sage.

Here is the first model I made that had 11 squares around. I really do not like the way this one looks so I started over and made the one above. I had made 11 squares that had an extra round on them, then stitched them together. Everything was then whip stitched together which made the seams wider. The resulting cover was looser and did not fit right. Click image to see larger version.
