Special Pattern Notes:

Beginning chain does not count as a stitch unless noted. Chains are not listed in stitch counts.

Carry main color (or if repeating any colors) up the inside while working.

If size of tissue box is different than the listed measurements on page 2, adjust hook. Different size boxes may result in too loose or too tight of a cover.

Sew on Crocheted Tissue Cover

First, layer the smaller leaves on between and on top of the larger

Next, sew through both leaves

Then, add the next leaf, either large or small, and sew.
