little urchin....

I've wanted to make one of these 'little urchin' covered stones for the longest time.... and finally made one last night as I needed a break from my two big projects and as a reward for finishing another smaller project (which I cannot show you just yet).

Pattern was designed by Margaret Oomen and is so easy to follow,

it can be found on

Ravelry and also on the Purl bee blog

I hope you are having a wonderful week,

we are enjoying our annual leave at the moment....

so our days are full and we are making the most of the beautiful spring air!

I really love your crocheted stone! What yarn did you use - cotton??

Gillian said...

Thanks ladies :)

Annemarie,
I used 100% cotton (Nerine by Moda Vera) it is a Fingerling weight 4ply and I used a 3.25mm hook (D)

the original pattern calls for a finer cotton and a smaller hook. But I just used what I had on hand :)

I love the wonderful contrasts here.....solid,hard rock encased in a soft yet secure crochet 'net'.
