The inspiration for this pattern came from CreativeJewishMom.com. I had to modify it for my stool, yarn and hook size. Using worsted weight yarn and a size H crochet hook I created a simple crochet cover for my naked wood stools.
Ch 6 to form a ring.
Round 1: Ch 3, DC 19x in the ring = 20 DC
Round 2: Ch 3, DC in same space, *DC in next DC, 2 DC in next DC*. Repeat around = 30 DC
Round 3: DC 2x in the V space, Ch 1, 2 DC in V space, repeat around. Join with slip stitch.
Round 4: 7 DCs in the chain 1 space of the previous round (inside the V shape)
Round 5: Slip stitch to middle of the 7 DCs from the previous round. Ch 3, then chain 8. *DC in middle of next cluster, ch 8*. Repeat around. Join with slip stitch.
Round 6: Ch 2, *skip the next stitch, DC in next DC* repeat around. Join with slip stitch.
Round 7: DC in each DC around. Join with slip stitch.
Round 8: ch3, DC in same space, Ch 1, 2 DC in same space (forms a v shape), *Skip 2 sts, 2DC, ch1, 2DC* repeat around.
For me was the edge of the stool. You may need to increase or decrease the number of rows depending on the size of your stool, yarn weight and hook size.
Round 9: ch 1, sc around and join to first stitch with slip stitch.
