The River Rocks

on March 19, 2013

I’ve been doing small projects lately as it’s all I seem to be able to wrap my head around.  The recent rains have made the river swell, but luckily I plucked these before the waters rose.  ImageImagechet, riverImage

    These are absolutely gorgeous, and such a clever, neat idea! I would love to know how you did this; is there a pattern you followed, or did you come up with it all on your own?

      Hi! You’re too kind 🙂 I first saw them on etsy-there are some sellers there that do spectacular work. I see you do doilies-it’s basically that on a small scale. I use tiny hooks and crochet thread (not yarn) and make a small doily to the size of the front of the stone. Then I do a round of single or double crochet and then start decreasing on the back side so it closes around the stone. Once I get down to about 12 stitches I cut the thread, draw it back thru the stitches, and pull it snug around the stone. It’s a neat thing to do with beach stones or river rocks, and it’s quick and portable while I’m waiting for someone to finish something (which I’m sure you too do A LOT of 🙂 Good luck!

        Fabulous! I think I’m going to have to give this a shot, though I live in the desert and don’t have much opportunity to find river rocks. I’m sure I can come up with something equally as stunning; thanks for the explanation!
