Ok hands up, I have never tried crocheting C2C, the girls in group especially @lyndascraftroom do this all the time, I’ve never been intrigued by it, but with this secret project Lynda and I are working on we thought it would be good to use it. Well I’m hooooked! I really like it, this is my first attempt
I had to obviously get a little help from @lyndascraftroom to be fair and I know she won’t mind me saying but she’s not the best of teachers 😂 sorry Lynda!! So I went to good old YouTube and figured it out straight away, including how to crochet a rectangle C2C, so of course now I’m looking for tonnes of C2C projects.
Quite some time ago my 16 year old sone asked me to crochet him a captain America cushion cover, I lost interest in it quite quickly using the tapestry crochet method, I find tapestry crochet a bit frustrating even though I like the end result.
So I’ve been on the hunt for a captain America shield cushion cover, 16 x 16, could I find one? Nope. So I’ve mind my own using Stitch fiddle cracking website and free!!! Please feel free to copy the graph and use it for yourself to print it off click hereCaptain America Sheild C2C Graph
This should work out at 30 little C2C blocks wide and should measure 16 inches, which should nicely fit a standard uk cushion. So a little bit more work on our secret project then I’m getting started on this. Captain America Sheild C2C Graph
More yarn bombing!
A Facebook friend of mine posted some amazing pictures yesterday of Allesley Village near Coventry which is where I used to live, I’ve not seen any yarn bombing here and I’m still guilty of not doing any! But these are by far some of the best yarn bombs I have seen, so I thought I would share them with you
