Crochet Covered Stones


I have always loved crochet covered stones and decided to give one a go (cause as you know, everyone needs a crochet covered stone or two sitting about their home).


This free pattern was perfect - easy to follow and great having the photos of the process to help.


I used light pink cotton, and am already onto my second one... I can see Symon having a grizzle about them soon!! Hmmmm, maybe I should make him a bunch of these for his Christmas present?



The perfect sweater for your pet rock...

  2. These look absolutely delightful, rather than try myself, I may take this around to Mum and get her to make one for me!! Cop out, I think so!

  5. I love these. I've been wanting to do them for ages, but seeing as I can basically only crochet in straight lines, I haven't mastered it yet. I might look at your pattern though, you never know...

  25. I remember when pet rocks were all the rage but they never had such pretty sweaters to wear. I've thought about giving this go and am inspired once again to try. Yours turned out great. Best wishes, Tammy
