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!
BALLS OF YARN SPRAWLED OVER THE TABLE
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.
