Eight Great Projects to Kick Off Your Holiday Crafting

Top, Left to Right
Aaahh!!! Real Monsters Krumm Toilet Paper Cozy – What better way to celebrate the 90s than with a toilet paper cozy? And what more hilariously iconic cartoon character to keep your toilet paper safe than the lovable Krumm from Nickelodeon’s Aaahh!!! Real Monsters? Crochet pattern download – $3.

Reservoir Mitts – Women’s fingerless mitts with entrelac pattern on back of hand. Knitscene Accessories 2012.

It’s a Wrap – Knot! Headband – Looking for the perfect transitional season headband – something with a lot of scalp coverage to protect from the sun but one that won’t hold in a lot of head heat? This headband is a fun combination of turban and front tying headscarf, with no worrying about the knot coming undone. Knit pattern download – $4.99.

Striped Beanie or Stocking Cap – Single and double crochet stripes in beautiful Tweed Stripes yarn makes this hat a stand out. Quick and easy, crochet up a beanie in no time – add a few more rounds for foldable stocking cap. Perfect for ladies and gentlemen! Crochet pattern download – FREE!

Bottom, Left to Right
Twin Cities Headband – The seed stitch boarder keeps it from curling, the ruffle is just big enough to make a statement but not so big it takes over your head, and the handmade plaid fabric button is the perfect accent. In short: You need this headband! Knit pattern download – $3.50.

Chunky Cabled Cowl – This chunky knit cabled cowl is the perfect quick, one skein project. With a cabled band between a boarder of seed stitch, this cowl is as fun to knit as it is fun to wear. Chunky cables make it easy to wear with any coat; under your heavy winter coat or over a light spring jacket. Knit pattern download – FREE!

WORK+SHELTER Hand Warmers – Side to side knit hand warmers with seed stitch details. Knit pattern download – $2.

Aaahh!!! Real Monsters Krumm Toilet Paper Cozy

It takes a while to truly appreciate things. They come into your life, and you get use to it being around, and then it’s gone and you’re left with Rocket Power and you’re like, WHA?! Repeat this process for everything that was awesome in the 90s that was replaced with something way less cool in the 2000s. TLC -> Pussycat Dolls?! Hangin’ With Mr Cooper -> Super Nanny?! Barf.

What better way to celebrate the 90s than with a toilet paper cozy? And what more hilariously iconic cartoon character to keep your toilet paper safe than the lovable Krumm from Nickelodeon’s Aaahh!!! Real Monsters?

So turn on some Ace of Base, pull out your crochet hook, and get cracking on a project that’s sure to get laughs from everyone you invite into your house until the end of time.


Teeth! Blue Lips! Terrifying!

Finished Size This cozy will fit over a double roll of toilet paper, and can be easily customizable by adding or subtracting increase rows at the top and crocheting more or less length.


Protecting Your Toilet Paper!

Yarn Any worsted weight yarn in cream (MC – 150 yds), and very small amounts of light blue, white, and black. I used Loops & Threads Impeccable, 100% acrylic; 268yds/128g: Heather for my MC.

Hook Size G (4 mm) crochet hook.

Notions Small amount of stuffing for eye ball arms, and a tapestry needle.


Not important.


Back Stitch With your tapestry needle threaded with black, bring your needle and thread up from the back to the front of your work. Put the needle back down through your work about half an inch away from where you started. Bring your needle back up another half inch away from where you went down, in a line. Pull your yarn through. Put the needle back down in the same spot you did before, working backwards to complete your stitch and make a clean line.
