Stonewashed Cora Headboard
Yep, you read that correct. I’ll be making a headboard for my bed from scratch. Timber, measurements, and of course the ‘piece de resistance’ aka the crocheted part. Currently I have an ensemble without anything fancy, and I have wanted to make a headboard for longer than I can remember. So let’s hope that I can accomplish what I envisage in my head.
Here you’ll be able to follow me step-by-step. Of course so far, I have the yarn, that’s most important part, right?? (but of course). I know you want to see a photo so get a load of this little beauty.
Don’t worry, I will tell you all the colours soon. I haven’t even done in measurements yet, I have had a quick research of how I’ll be doing it, so I hope it all goes smoothly ;).
The plan for the Cora squares is to gradually blend from one shade to the other, so say for instance, I start with the blue, then work through the greens, to the yellows etc. This is how I have always seen it happening in my head. Oh I just remembered to let you know that this is the reason I designed my Cora square. I wanted something simple that had that little something special. And of course, if you know me by know, you’ll know that I love the popcorn stitch. I love texture. So there you go 🙂 you know the reason behind my craziness.
I’m currently working out a joining method that I can use that has a bit of texture, just to break up the squares, there’s a high possibility that I’ll change my mind and use something simple. But we are far from joining, so plenty of time to ponder and change my mind a million times.
The last 5 days have been a whirlwind of doctors and hospital visits due to William being unwell. So obviously my priority was lots of cuddles and kisses. Not much crocheting happened at all. Thankfully, this morning we have seen some improvement and whilst he slept on the lounge next to me, I was able to whip up a few squares and actually see my plan falling into place. Here’s a little look-see 🙂
As some of you know, this is my first ever try of Scheepjes anything. And I’m in love. I’ve wanted Stonewash for so long, it’s nice to be able to finally try it. It is nothing like I expected it to be. It has a little ‘fluffiness’ to it, but altogether it’s lovely and soft. And I think that you could make anything in it and it would feel divine.
Here is a close up of this beautiful yarn, in one of my favourite colours, I just wish there were more ‘blue’ shades available.
So there you have it! The reason behind my first ever bundle of Stonewash and my Cora square. I’ll be slightly updating the current pattern to include how to do the stitches, I tend to assume that everyone knows how to make all the stitches, so my bad, I apologise. I also plan to update the photos too. Because you can never have to many photos of crochet pieces.
I cannot wait to start this little project, I really hope it comes together nicely. So stay tuned and follow this journey as I go. I plan to start real soon 😀
