A crochet toilet seat cover is an easy needlework project for anyone who has mastered a few basic crochet stitches. The cover will work up quickly and can be made in the color of your choice. Select a fine-gauge yarn for a lacy, old-fashioned look, or choose a bulkier yarn for a more contemporary or casual design. Use a machine washable cotton yarn so your toilet seat cover will be easy to care for.
