 Smiley Has anyone made a simple 3-tier Hanging TP holder? I saw one for sale already crocheted with a simple flower on the front . Would like to see if anyone else has made one it consists of HDC and DC. It will hold 3 rolls of TP paper and hangs on a hook. Would like a pattern if someone can share  Huh

I can remember those from my youth! There used to be tons of patterns available but now they are really scarce.
There is this one which is quite cute:

you may be able to adapt the pattern

Is this what you have in mind?(sorry no pattern there!)
http://mickidmw.blogspot.com/2008/03/my-rendition-of-hanging-toilet-tissue.html (its in the 29 march 2008 post )
It looks as if it is 15 stitches wide and enough rows to go over the rolls. I would measure over three rolls of tp and allow an extra 1" (or so) for space to slide the rolls in and then crochet the strip that lenght. You can either sew the areas in between the rolls or (if your math is good and its not 2am  Wink) you can crochet the seams together as you go along to form the partitions. The top is just a decrease like in a dishcloth topper. The edging can be as complicated or as simple as you like. There are heaps of flower patterns on the net - so many it is hard to choose one!
EG. crochet 19 chainst. Dc in 4th chain from hook and every chain across. repeat until strip is long enough to accomodate the rolls then attach to the beginning row. Dc across and then work decreases on either side until only 8 dcs are left. Cover a round wooden ring with sc making sure the ring is completely covered and attach to the top of the cover. Work a simple shell edging along both sides ( sc, skip enough space to make the next dcgroup stand nicely. do dc group(2 dc , ch1, 2dc) into same space , skip enough space etc, sc, dcgroup etc)
 I hope what I wrote made sense! Aks away if it doesn't! Wink

I am rather enamoured of the puple flower one myself - pity I bulk buy TP - a 42 tier one may just be a bit over the top I think Cheesy
I suspect the one in the pic with the purple flowers was actually stitched at the joins - if you upsize the pic it seems to have stitches running across in the same color thread. This would make creating the item much easier as you could just do a long strip and then sew the seams to separate the tiers.
I reckon that way you could also experiment with different stitch patterns easily

To crochet the tiers together would be the same as when you crochet blocks/squares together - stitch through both sections together. This will leave a single line of stitches, then carry on with the rest of the project.

there is a pic here to show the single crochet seam - you could just use that technique through or around the stitches in the back.
