So... 2020 was a pretty tough year for all of us. Amongst the craziness was the supreme hoarding of toilet paper since everyone was panicking about not having enough. To commemorate this crappy year (excuse me), I wanted to bring a little relief to others with sharing this super quick crochet pattern.
During the month of December '20, I hosted a free CAL (crochet along) through my Insta and had prizes to spread some joy! There were 5 categories that people could enter and win - largest, smallest, most made, most scenic, and random. I was amazed at the turnout and it made me happy knowing that so many people had a good laugh at this pattern when I was a novice designer.

-medium worsted yarn in white and tan
-size 3.75 hook
-yarn needle, hot glue, scissors
-HDC (half double crochet)
TOILET PAPER (in white yarn):
ROW 1: CH 61. Starting from the second CH from the hook, HDC all the way down the row. 
ROW 2-10: CH 1, turn. HDC all the way down the row. (9 rows total) 
Fasten off and leave a short tail to weave in.
ROLL (in tan yarn):
ROW 1: CH 26. Starting from the second CH from the hook, HDC all the way down the row. 
ROW 2-12: CH 1, turn. HDC all the way down the row. (11 rows total) 
Leave a long tail for sewing and fasten off. Using your yarn needle, sew row 12 to row 1, creating a tube.
STEP 1: Right now, your tube is looking like a churro! Flip the two outer edges inwards towards the middle to create more structure. The roll should be the width of the toilet paper.
STEP 2: Sew only the edge of the toilet paper onto the roll so that the empty roll shows!
STEP 3: Cut out two ovals for the eyes and three skinny rectangles for the brows /mouth out of black felt and glue the face on. (We don’t want embroidery thread or safety eyes to show through when we unroll the toilet paper which is why we won’t be using them).
STEP 4: Tie ornament string around the tube. Hide the knot in the inside of the roll.
That's that! Your Angry TP Roll is finished. Hope you enjoy the unrolling action! Let's hope that there never has to be a TP shortage again ;).
