Lucky Clover Stone

This is another crochet-covered stone I made from Margie's patterns in Crochet Today.

I found the stone in Cherokee Park, half-buried in the dirt. I hauled it home, hosed it off, and crocheted away. You can't tell from the photos, but it's a bit odd shaped--thick on one side and thin on the other with lumps and bumps all around. Once I'd gotten the hang of the crochet pattern, it was so easy to make adjustments to fit this very stone. Margie explains it as basically making a mesh netting that will stretch to fit whatever rock you have.

I have to include a quote from K, who appreciates my work even if he doesn't always understand it. His take on the crocheted stone: "Well, I'm sure glad that rock isn't naked anymore."

Oh! Margie's got lots of giveaways going on at her blog, Resurrection Fern, right now. You've got until tomorrow to enter to win some of her beautiful creations. Get on over there!


  1. So sweet. I've always wanted to give this a go. The combination of gray stone and white lace is so beautiful.

  2. That's beautiful - I love pretty things just for the sake of loveliness. You may like this:
