Crochet Rocks

img_2935

My family and I had the opportunity/inconvenience of living in a tiny cottage on the top of a hill!  Why?  Because we had a flood in our kitchen and were temporarily moved there.  As you can see, the view was absolutely stunning but living in a remote area had its challenges (especially with a baby.)

While we were there I checked “crochet rocks” off of my project bucket list (because there wasn’t much else to do to be honest!)  There were so many rocks around so I thought, now is the time!  It’s actually quite a quick project if you’re familiar with crochet and do a little research.

A while back I watched a “crochet stones” video tutorial on a website called “Creative Bug“.  Once you subscribe you have access to a number of videos that are of really good quality.  (I ended up unsubscribing because I found the majority of the crochet tutorials catered towards beginners.  If you’re a beginner, I highly recommend it!)  The crochet stones video, in particular, was really great because it taught me how to make the netting that goes around the stone/rock.  See?  the rocks even look cool from the back!

Later on, I looked up a “crochet doily” video here.   I used the first few rounds of the pattern to make the circle design and then continued with the netting technique I learned from Creative Bug to finish it off.

I thought I’d try another one with a snowflake pattern here.

And, since I wasn’t about to pack two heavy rocks into my suitcase I thought, here is where I made them so here they will stay…bye bye rocks!  Bye bye cottage too because we’re back home safe and sound now.

Let me know if you give it a try!

Happy crochet’ing
