Category: GeneralYarn Bomb the yard

Close

April 29, 2017

Let's yarn bomb the tree in our side yard again. Last year's pieces are looking pretty frayed, and April just invites a new set of clothes for the tree.

Let's change it up a little bit this year and do garter strip pieces in worsted weight, bright colors, and flowers in all colors, shapes, and sizes.

The blue flower in the picture is very easy: Chain 2.

Round 1: Sc 6 times in 2nd chain from hook.
Round 2: Sc 3 times in ach stitch.

Repeat Round 2 until flower is desired size. (Please leave about an 8" piece of yarn when finishing off, so that we can use it to attach the flower.

If you have your own favorite flower pattern, please feel free to use it. If you want to knit flowers rather than crochet, that is okay as well.

We need yarn strips approximately 6 inches wide by 22 inches long. You can knit these easily by casting on 30 stitches with size 7 needles and knitting back and forth for 22 inches. (You can slip the first stitch on every row for a nice edge!) (Please leave about a 10" piece of yarn when finishing off the strip, so that we can use it to sew the strips together.)

We could also use yarn strips 3 inches wide by 22 inches long in bright colors.
Using worstd weight yarn and size 7 needles, cast on 15 stitches an knit back and forth for 22 inches. Again leave a 10" piece of yarn when finishing off the strip.

If you prefer to crochet the strips, chain 21 stitches for the 6 inch strip, sc in 2nd chain from hook, and in each chain across, for 20 stitches. *Turn, ch1, sc in every stitch across*, and repeat * to * until you have 22 inches. For a 3 inch strip, just chain 11 stitches and work same as for 6 inch strip. (Please leave about a 10" piece of yarn when finishing off the strip, so that we can use it to sew the strips together.)

It takes 3 of the 22" strips to go around the tree trunk, so we will sew the strips together as we get them in.

Let's plan on Saturday, April 29th as "Yarn Bombing Day" from 1 to 4 pm. If you can come to the shop and help, that would be wonderful. We will bring refreshments and party with friends all afternoon!

Please send us strips and flowers in the mail if you don't live close by. It will be fun to see what the mailman brings each day!
