Crocheted Rock Art

Standard

I totally love crochet covered rocks. I think the contrast between the hard cold stone and the soft warm yarn is great.

The first covered rocks I saw where the ones from http://www.resurrectionfern.typepad.com/ . She creates such beautiful things with materials she finds in nature.

Inspired by her rocks I started hunting for pictures and ideas on the net. In the meantime a lot of people discovered the joy of creating Rock Art. No matter if they are made with white thread (which looks really elegant) or multicolored. I love them all.

You can use lace crochet patterns or doily patterns and adapt them to your rocks or you use freeform crochet. In the Crochet Today! Magazine Sept/Oct 2009 were three nice patterns by Margaret Oomen (You can take a look here: http://www.crochettoday.com/crochet-patterns/lacy-river-rocks). These where the ones I used for my first experiments. After that I was was compleetly infected. I went for very long walks to search for nice stones (they are not easy to find in my area) and started my collection.  I even went for a walk with some finished rocks to take pictures. Today I want to show you some of my creations:

The little fish is a free pattern by Margaret Oomen and you can find it here:

For this rock I used one of the patterns from the Crochet Today! Magazine

For this one I adapted a pineapple motif pattern

For these rocks I used one of the patterns from the Crochet Today! Magazine

This one I copied from a doily picture I found on the internet. This is the biggest stone so far. It nearly weighs 3 kg and measures 20×18 cm. It´s quite big and I use ist as a doorstop sometimes.

This one is an adapted irish crochet doily. I added a big bead in the middle of the irish rose pattern to make it look more elegant.

I hope you like what you see and maybe you are inspired to try it yourselft. Purlbee has a nice tutorial posted if you want to (http://www.purlbee.com/little-urchin-crochet-covered/). There are endless possibilities to create and have fun.

Happy Hooking everyone 🙂

In the crochet Magazine “Inside Crochet, Isuue 21, September 2011”   they really published my version of the “Leigh Fascinator by Linda Lunn”  and they asked me for a comment and published it aswell (in the green box). So that´s me (well my had from the backside “LOL”)
