Craft home decor: stool cover tutorial,

free crochet pattern

I did several small, 2-round granny squares (the easiest instructions I’ve found for these are here). I tend to do things like this over and over, till it feels as if those movements are actually imprinted in my brain. Suddenly, I can suddenly crochet a granny square out of cooked spagetti without even trying.

Well, ok, actually, that would be a stretch.

My little project got the nod from Gracie. She liked the cream yarn I was adding around the finished squares (just a half double crochet stitch all the way around, doing 3 at each corner.) I attached them all together using this method, which has become my favorite. I just can’t seem to do the sew-in method very well, at least not yet.

In a matter of an afternoon, I had myself a bonafide stool cover. Not nearly as lovely or well-made as Ingrid’s, and it doesn’t fit perfectly, but I’m still proud.
