Ever since I saw my first yarnbomb, I've wanted to have a go at it.
Rather than attempt a tree (!), I decided to try something simple, like a stool.
I used some yarn I originally bought for an Attic 24 bag - I think I still have enough left to still do it! The stool was a £3.99 metal stacking stool from Dunelm.
For the stool seat, I followed the first few rows of a Trivet Cover pattern. I then "busked it" ... crocheting in back loops and decreasing to get the cover to fit the seat.
I crocheted very simple tubes for the legs - a long rectangle whipstitched together.
I twisted the tubes once they were on the stool to give a swirl effect.
I love how the crochet has transformed the stool into something I'd happily have around the house.
So there you have it ... my first yarnbomb! From now on, no object is safe!
