Yesterday I shared a crochet poem by Lois Collins along with some of her beautiful crochet stone art. I really love the unique work she’s done with crochet stones and wanted to share more of the creative work that other artists have also done in this neat niche of crochet. Here’s a roundup of 20 great examples of crochet covered stones, starting with one more by Lois.

1. Crochet Art On Stones

I really love the beautiful crochet covered stones from Lois that I shared yesterday, which have faces on them, but I also love these more abstract art rocks.

2. Stone Stack Sculptures

Crochet doll artist Ingrid Zambrano also makes beautiful stacked crochet stone sculpture art. I love the huge scale.

3. Crochet Rocks and Turtle

Margaret Oomen (aka Knitalatte) of Resurrection Ferm does really creative work with crochet covered stones, ranging from the very simple to the simply divine. I especially love her little scenes, like this one with crochet covered stones and doily-painted turtles. She also has crochet rock garden scenes that I love. There is actually a crochet pattern for some of her simpler stones over at Purl Bee.
