What I love the most about ripples tissue box pattern is the crochet stitch which is a turkish star crochet stitch. The look of this stitch associates with light ripples on the water thus the name of a pattern.

Ripples tissue box pattern is perfect for days when you are not up to stitch counting or for any complicated patterns but rather binge watch while crocheting. If you’re anything like me, those days are pretty frequent.

Tissue cover crochet pattern is a wonderful pattern for any time of the year, whether you want to keep a finished item for yourself (and put it in every room, like in my house) or give it to your family and friends, it’s also a great item for selling in the markets.

What will you need to crochet a tissue box cover?

You’ll need a poly crochet cord or it works beautifully with tshirt yarn. Wooden tissue box bases will make your box sturdy at the bottom and the lid cover has a special cut opening for tissues just like in regular cardboard tissue boxes. The wooden base is designed to fit a standard tissue box or it can be used without the cardboard box. I actually take all tissues out of the cardboard box and put them inside my crochet box and then refill it as needed. And did I mention that lid covers have a variety of printed patterns on them. The wood also has a waterproof coating which comes very useful at times. All the materials can be found at my etsy shop either separately or in the KIT which includes 2 bobbins of poly crochet cord and wooden base with a lid. The best part of getting a KIT is you’ll get a PDF of a ripples tissue box crochet pattern free!

How to crochet Tissue box cover?

Crochet through the designed holes to start the “walls” of the box. Look down below in a pattern for a quick tip on how not to leave any gaps. Once you crochet around the base you’ll work up to the desired length of the tissue box using turkish star crochet stitch. The wooden lid is worked up the same way as the base with fewer rounds.
