Robyn’s Yarn Bombed Sticks
For the July 2014 issue of Your Family magazine I was asked to yarn bomb some sticks. Which Robyn, one of the staff loved so much that she asked me to make her some too.
I used Vinnis Colours Nikkim yarn with a 4mm hook and various stitch patterns, some from Robyn Chachula’s book Crochet Stitches Visual Encyclopedia (my go-to stitch pattern book).
I also used Jan Eaton’s 200 Crochet blocks for Blankets, throws, and afghans (both these books are also available on Kalahari for my South African readers.)
The above stitch is from that book (without the added slip stitches).
Some of the patterns I made up as I went along. I also used some of the granny squares from Simply Crochet’s Granny Square app.
It was really difficult to photograph these sticks to convey a sense of what they really look like to you.That’s why I’ve added so many photos. I honestly couldn’t choose any less and wanted you to feel as if you were seeing them in real life.
