I love this movement I’ve seen in social media. It consists in crocheting a cover for a stone on the beach and leaving it there as a trace of our passing by on that sand. I think there’s something very magical in it; a token of our connection to nature. These are some examples I really liked.
They are very easy to make. You just have to use a thin cotton thread and a mandala pattern. Once you have crocheted the surface of the stone, you start decreasing the stitches and closing it from behind; and there you have it. There are some real artists of this method, such as Margaret Oomen who makes wonderfully intricate stone covers…
Now that I’m on holidays, I will join in and leave my crochet-covered stone on Oyambre Beach, in Cantabria. If anyone finds it, please send a picture!
Here you have a link to many inspiring pictures in case you feel like crocheting your own covered stone :).
