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!
