I finished mine last week and gave them to my friend for her housewarming present last Friday.  She loved them! between that and the Kure Kure Takura bag I made her she was almost in tears! Thanks so much mk_carroll for the pattern(s).

Here are pictures of mine. 
I subbed red glass beads for the french knot looking things on mk_carroll's version.
I am not an embroiderer, so the tops left a little to be desired, lol, but I tried hard.

Maki Sushi Toilet Paper Cozy, all knit version

Maki Sushi Toilet Paper Cozy, crochet+knit version

My original crochet and crochet + knit versions are available for free in the first issue of CrochetMe magazine.  The knit version below has been rewritten as of September 2007 to address some design issues.  If you really want the very first version of this knit pattern, it's still available on my blog.  
US #6/4mm double pointed needles
worsted weight yarn, white and black (this pattern doesn't use much; you could get several cozies from a single skein of each color)
scrap yarns in assorted colors, as desired for filling
blunt yarn needle
stitch marker (or coilless safety pin)
roll of toilet paper to use as a fitting model

gauge is not vital to this project, as you will be fitting it to the model as you go.  

glossary of terms:
yf = yarn forward.  This is an increase - like doing a yarn over (yo) but taking the yarn from the back of the needle to the front of the needle.  If you don't like it, use a different increase, like kfb (knit front and back) or m1 (make one).

CO 8, divide among 4 needles.  Mark beginning of round.
1) k all
2) *yf, k1* = 16 sts
3) k all
4) *yf, k2* = 24 sts
5) k all
6) *yf, k1* = 32 sts
7) k all
8) *yf, k9* = 40 sts
9) k all
10) *yf, k5* = 48 sts
12) k all
13) *yf, k6* = 56 sts
15) k all
check for fit if it almost fits the top of the tp roll, continue with nori.  If its not quite there, continue, checking for fit and moving on to nori when youve reached the desired diameter:
16) *yf, k7* = 64 sts
17) k all
18) *yf, k8* = 72 sts
19) k all
20) *yf, k9* = 80 sts
21) k all
22) *yf, k10* = 88 sts
23) k all

switch to black yarn.  Knit one round, purl one round, then knit all following rounds until sides measure 4.5/11.5cm or 1/2 shorter than desired length.  Work k1, p1 ribbing for 3 rounds and bind off.

Return to the beginning - using yarn needle, thread tail through first 6 sts and draw together to close the center.  

Weave in all ends.

using scrap yarns and blunt yarn needle, stitch in fillings as desired.  I marked off the inner 7 rounds and kept the fillings within that perimeter.  Recommended: acquire maki sushi for study purposes and then eat.

- more sushi + knitting: super tasty sushi stitch markers at Amyville.com!  She also has cupcake, donut, and chocolate.
-use a boucl yarn for the rice
- larger needles, like US 7 (4.5mm) or 8 (5mm), will save you some time and the results will still look good; the toilet paper might show through a little.
- glue or sew on pieces of felt or other fabric instead of embroidering the fillings
-if working on double pointed needles is not your idea of a good time, you can work the pattern back and forth in stockinette and then seam it up at the end.

Just finished my cozy!  This was fun.  I dropped it in the mail to my friend Jen this morning.  The only problem I had was because I didn't feel like dealing with dpns I knitted the nori flat and decided to seam it up after.  I must have miscalculated or something because I ended up with about 5" of overlap.

Hee hee, this is such a cute pattern I just had to try it  Cheesy. I made mine as a Kappa Maki which worked out great because I had some green leftover yarn. To make the cucumber filling I just knitted it as a separate piece and sewed it on (I don't know any embroidery techniques) so it's a little lumpy, but I like it!

Here's the crocheted version I made for my mom for Mother's Day, very fitting since we are Japanese! I did not use the pattern, I just winged it, then added makeshift yarn embroidery. Thanks so much for sharing this idea!
