Yarnbombing SG River


Last week I decided I needed to get out of my comfy zone to look for people who does crochet and knitting in Singapore. I’ve been thinking awhile now, how to reach these people, and I managed to meet One Maker Group and one of them introduced me to Mona and team. I reached out to their facebook and discovered this amazing and upcoming project for Singapore River Festival. A total of 9 trees will be yarnbombed with all our squares in 3 main colors. Yippee!!

The first meetup for this event was held last week and I had event in school so I gave it a miss. But today I made the effort to look for the group.

Before I opened the door. I was nervous as hell… but then… friendly people welcome me and seriously, it felt like HOME!


Mona greeted me warmly and introduced the other participants involved in this event. I was told to pick the yarn to work on my pieces. Any pattern i want as long as it was 12 inch by 12 inch and in its own shade. I decided with red and tadah! My square below:

I have this huge love for red yarn and particularly bobble stitch. I started out with double crochets and I thought why not add some bobbles since this yarnbombing will allow public to feel the yarn.

I will leave this pattern here for anyone who wishes to do a 12 inch by 12 inch granny (?) bobble square.
