It does not take Long before a newborn is up and curious!
Certainly longer than it took me to turn these --
A Crochet Cube!
I will show you the sides!
And the sixth is a bit special!
It has a pocket and I popped in a little finger puppet!
Ready for a game of Incy Wincy Spider!
Our little Grandson is due in 11 weeks and we shall be ready to Play!
If you want to crochet one of these cubes make six identical squares.
Mine measure 15cm by 15cm.
I used half Treble Stitch which gives a nice dense feel.
Then decorate the sides with all your favourite things.
If you want to copy the Curly Wurly bits I chain 20,turn and work 2 Half Double Crochet stitches in each of the chain stitches in your first row.
It magically curls as you work and I think it will be just the the to encourage little hands to explore!
I promise to write a tutorial for the spider soon but I am so busy finishing Crafty bits and pieces at the moment it will have to be put on hold for a while!
Finally, if you could look inside you would see the perfect Crafty recycling project!
NB. If I was making this again I would sew all the squares together with wrong sides facing and then turn it the right way out just finishing the closing seam with stitches on the outside!
Still, I am sure the baby won't mind!
All my scraps of wool make it soft and cuddly as well as, I hope,
LOTS OF FUN!
