I was cleaning the kitchen last Sunday and noticed how yucky the toaster looked on the counter. Of course I immediately decided to put a cover on it, I just didn't know what kind. After some searching Amazon for something that I liked, I decided to just use some of my leftover yarn and make my own. I tried to find a pattern online, but I didn't find anything simple enough and you know that if it's not simple then it's not for me! I know this picture doesn't do the cover justice, but believe me it is a major improvement over simply having a toaster sitting on the counter and it absolutely looks better than the toaster alone collecting dust in the corner.
This pattern depends upon the size of your toaster, but mine is a two slice Oster (see affiliate link at bottom of post). The cover is a little larger than necessary but this is because I plant on getting a bigger toaster with 2 slide wide mouth and longer slots to fit Rye bread some day. Nothing like planning ahead!
