scrappy stool cover

Top of stool cover made in crochet
I've been looking for a small stool that was just
the right size for my husband to put his feet on.
I found one on the curb that was
 a bit torn but was the perfect height.
 I originally planned to sew a cover for it
but I've been looking for ways to
use up my stash yarn so that is when
I decided to crochet this cover.

The centre part is the free pattern
called Sunburst granny by Priscilla Hewitt.
I continued working double crochet in rounds,
adjusting the fit as I went which was sometimes
difficult because my cat pounced on top of it
each time I tested to see if it fit.

I made 2 rows of each colour and when I reached
the edge I continued making double crochet but
with no increases.
I also worked the first row that went over the edge
into the back loops only so it would fold over nicely.

Here is a picture showing a peek at the stool
and also to show how it is removable so
that it can be washed.

Make sure that you post a pic if you end up making one....I'd love to find an old wooden stool but they are hard to find.
Maybe in the spring I'll just make one.
