Elongated Shell Toilet Seat Cover

Elongated Shell Toilet Seat Cover ~ FREE
Elongated Shell Toilet Seat Cover ~ FREE Crochet Pattern

This elongated shell toilet seat cover is a modification of my original shell toilet seat cover. Both patterns were designed by request.

The elongated version is quite large, even for the lid pictured above. The reason for this is because I received a request to make it fairly large (18.5″ by 16″). The length is okay for my lid, but there’s a lot more room for the width as mine is only 14″. I know it will fit at least a 15″ lid, but it might also stretch to a 16″.

A few of my testers found it to be quite large, and therefore, suggested to go with one round less for a smaller lid. I would say eliminate round 13 and then finish with rounds 14 and 15 if you need something smaller.

Skill Level: Easy

Materials:
Yarn: Red Heart Comfort
Crochet Hook: I/9-5.50MM

Gauge: Measures approximately 2.5″ across from side to side of first round, and 2.75″ across the loops of first round.

Finished Size: Fits a seat that is 18.7″ long and 14-15″ Wide. My lid measures 14″ and there is room for more width if needed.

  1. SO excited to see you have this posted! If I could jump up & down, I would.
    Thank you so much for taking the time to design this pattern. I appreciate that you share your design gifts.

  2. How much yarn is needed? 1, 2, or 3 ‘balls?’ Thank you. I’m thinking of having a friend make this seat cover for me. I don’t know how much to tell her I need.

    1. Mary, I’m sorry, I honestly don’t know what to tell you because i worked off a large ball of Red Heart Comfort. If using small balls, I’d say maybe about two balls should do it.

  3. I made 2 of the elongated covers & they fit perfectly! I was concerned because I’m a tight crocheter but I am SO pleased with the results. The directions were easy to follow. Thank you again for designing this version!

  4. Thank you so much for this pattern. It is beautiful, simple and fits my toilet perfectly. I used chunky yarn and 5.5 mm hook.
    Your instructions are so easy to follow. I have started my second one
