Crocheted Covers for Stones and Other Objects


I love collecting rocks, shells, and sea glass on my vacations. What better way to add something special to them than by adding some embellishment? These natural treasures hold memories of serene beach walks and moments of discovery, and with a touch of creativity, they can be transformed into cherished keepsakes.


Whether it’s by weaving on them or crocheting on them, we love making these little keepsakes outstanding. The act of embellishing these items adds a layer of personal touch and creativity, turning simple finds into beautiful, handcrafted mementos. The intricate patterns and designs can reflect the beauty of nature and the joy of the moments spent collecting these treasures.


I have multiple patterns (along with 24 other great weaving patterns) for weaving on rocks in my book Weaving Within Reach. This book is a treasure trove of inspiration and guidance, offering a variety of techniques and designs to help you get started. From simple weaves to more complex patterns, there's something for everyone, whether you're a beginner or an experienced weaver. For the woven stone patterns, each pattern is designed to enhance the natural beauty of your collected items, turning them into unique works of art.


Crocheting on rocks is one of my favorite pastimes. The delicate lace-like designs that can be created with crochet add an elegant touch to the rough texture of the stones. Now, you can also purchase a detailed pattern that walks you through the process step-by-step, ensuring you have all the information you need to create your own beautiful crocheted stones. If you prefer video instruction, I also have a video class available on Creativebug: Crochet Stones. This class provides a visual guide, making it easier to follow along and learn the techniques. They are currently offering 60 days free!

BUY THE PATTERN: Crocheted Covers Pattern For Stones and Other Objects 

When I teach crochet covers for various objects, I always recommend starting with a larger object and thicker yarn, such as a large stone or even a pumpkin. This allows you to learn the stitches and see what’s happening easily. The larger scale makes it easier to understand the techniques and see your progress. For these projects, I use a Size I-9 Crochet Hook and Worsted Weight yarn. I love using Malabrigo Rios for it's gorgeous variegation:

These tools are perfect for beginners, as they provide a good grip and make it easier to handle the yarn. The worsted weight yarn is thick enough to see the stitches clearly and understand the pattern.


Once you have a handle on the basics, the Crochet Cover Patterns also transition well to smaller projects. The transition to smaller scales can be both challenging and rewarding. Switch to a steel hook and beautiful Valdani thread to make those collector items even more exquisite. The finer thread transforms the detailed and delicate designs, adding a touch of elegance to your creations:

These tools and materials will help you create intricate and stunning pieces that turn ordinary rocks, shells, and sea glass into extraordinary keepsakes. The intricate patterns and tiny stitches add a layer of sophistication and artistry to your collected treasures. Enjoy the process and let your creativity shine! The joy of turning simple, natural items into beautiful, handcrafted pieces is immensely satisfying and a wonderful way to preserve memories of your vacations. Happy crafting!
