(Updated) Crocheted toilet set....
Thanks to mathwizard and fibernut for their help in making sense of this old pattern. Ended up doing my own interpretation and pleased with how it turned out. Next up, design a matching tank set. (I'll just use the funky old green pieces as templates.)

What a pretty cover!

On Decorating Cents this week, one of the designers made a cover out of an inexpensive 'Persian' rug. I've got to do that, it will just kill my family.

I love it!
If I knew how to crochet I would make the two that I need. I just bought a new one yesterday and I hate it, but there was no other choice!!

fibernut, I opted to do one less wrap for the 'poofy' st (it was too bulky and wasn't sure I'd ever want to sit on something so bumpy) and like the clean look of the revision. Once I did a sample of what the sts were going to produce I just kept checking the shaping against the actual seat. It was actually easier than the orig patt because I never broke the yarn so was able to work start to finish. (I also opted not to work '3 sc in the back corners' for the last few rows which helped with the shaping there.) If I'd followed the orig patt to a 't' doubt I'd have liked it so a bit of tweaking gave me better results.
