From the first time I saw crochet covered rocks, I knew I wanted to try my hand at making some.
I found this easy how-to, Margaret Oomen’s Little Urchin Crochet Covered Sea Stones,on the Purl Bee and decided I’d start there.
I bought a bunch of cotton crochet thread at our local secondhand shop with this project in mind. Even though the crochet hook I used was bigger than recommended, I’m happy with how it turned out.
So far, I’ve only made this one. I want to make some more of these though, since I have tons more thread and have since bought a smaller sized crochet hook that should make working with the thread A LOT easier.
These make great paper weights or just decorative pieces for your home or even garden!
I like to think that my grandma (“Mom”) would have loved these too. She always had a large decorative basket of sea stones and shells on display in her house that I enjoyed looking through when we’d visit her.
