It is reported that Albert Einstein once said "Even on the most solemn occasions I got away without wearing socks and hid that lack of civilization in high boots."
This Einstein toilet roll cover shows no evidence of wearing socks though you can see his boots.
His head and body are knitted in one piece, either flat or in the round, and the arms and legs are knitted separately and stitched on. The sweater can also be knitted either flat or in the round.
The simple pattern includes full instructions. The cover can be made from any standard Double Knitting yarns and uses about 50 metres in each of four colours.
The pattern will be sent electronically so there is no postage to pay.
Our book ‘Toilet Roll Covers’ was published in September 2007, by Guild of Master Craftsman Publications Ltd. We had far more designs than would fit into the book. Some of those that were not used are now available as individual pdf files.
