Crochet
The vibrant colours of this stool cover add interest to a practical project. Worked in the round using trebles and double crochet, this is an ideal project for someone with some experience of crochet.

Treble crochet gives a lovely openwork finish to the top of this cover, but the underneath is much more dense because it is worked in double crochet. This will ensure that the cover fits snugly over the stool, preventing it from slipping.
