I found a stool on the curb which was a bit battered but still in good condition.
I decided to make a cover for it so I crocheted a new top for it.
Here is a closer look from the top.
It's a bit stretched from my cat's claws and my husbands feet :0)

Here is a pic showing the old stool peeking out.


The centre part is from this free pattern

The rest is rows of double crochet.

Wow....that looks immense with your crochet cover on. It looks kind of Paul Smith-esque with the colour choices  Smiley

I wish I could find things like that lying around in my neighbourhood

Thanks guys,
I was really happy that I could use a lot of my stash up and it feels so good
to reuse something that would normally end up in the trash.

littlmissmanics, I've see pictures of the most rickety old stools that have been covered
and they look great. Some of them looked like they were just a few boards nailed together
yet they looked amazing when they were covered in yarn.
