Title pinched from Mrs Snail. Way back in July 2015 Mrs Snail was using Permaculture Principles in her scrap-busting projects and making some fun hats. Using all sorts of bits and pieces of yarn left over from other projects, she tied them together and wound them into a ball and crocheted hats to sell at a Permaculture event.
I thought this was such a FAB!!!!! idea and started tying lengths of left over yarn together, no ends to sew in. My hoarding paid off!!! Hurray!
I thought I would make some seat covers for Pippin, the caravan that sits in my garden.
which is great place to keep the Lego
But Pippin is a bit old and scrappy as it is, so I don’t think the seat covers made of odd bits of yarn works very well in there. I think granny squares in Cath Kidson colours might look better and smarten the caravan up a bit. What to do with what I have made so far….
I just love the random colours and texture this creates
I unravelled a cardigan that never gets worn
and added to the seat cover to turn it into a blanket. All sorts of yarns in every weight were added together, and I used the cardigan yarn for the border
It has made a snug and cosy blanket that will go off to Syria in November.
I’ve also made a scarf, much loved by Master R.
