Expect lots of breaks, so just don’t call it quits.
Think of as earthworm that grows into twos
Embrace longies and shorties; they’re all there to use.
You’ll end with the squishiest, cushy surprise
A sight for sore feet, and a feast for your eyes!
This Kit comes with the pattern (16" x 12") on Monk's Cloth or Linen and comes with an assortment of woolen strips:
Bag 1: 3 colors greens tied together for background
6 colors for the leaves
Bag 2: 2 stripes tied together for swirls
Black/gray mix for squirrel
4 mixed mohairs tied together for whatever you’d like to use them for (maybe more swirls in background of swapping out leaf colors)
2 brown/rust tied together for acorns
Small bundle of lights for squirrel eye or anyplace you could use a light pop
Hooking with sweaters really is different than wool. It hooks fast and full but it has difference properties. Don’t be frustrated if worms break… hook it in small pieces, big pieces – doesn’t matter. Don’t overthink your loop heights – some sweaters are thicker than others and they are collectively going to lend a more varied, antique look than perfectly uniform wool strips. Celebrate the differences and enjoy the novelty! If you have been saving old sweaters, add them too. Save your leftovers for your next mash-up project.
The pattern are also available separately on a choice or linen, monk's cloth, transfer medium or as an electronic file (PDF)
