The tissue is meant to be a ghost coming up out of the grave: WoooOOooOoooo
This was my first attempt at the Loop crochet stitch and it was a bit trickier than expected, because I had to change the way I hold my fingers during a stitch. As suggested, I looked at Planet June’s tutorial which was excellent. I got the hang of it by the end and I liked how it turned out. I blocked the loops using colouring pens to hold them open while they dried – resulting in nice, standy-uppy grass.
I deviated from the pattern a little bit (can’t help myself). Instead of fastening off and re-joining to make the hole for the tissues to come out, I just chained for the length I wanted the hole and then kept stitching. Why fasten off if you don’t have to?
The headstone went together exactly as the pattern described, and I found some roses in my box of ribbons that I use for gift wrapping.
Some would call it macabre but I’m really pleased with this spooky tissue box cover.
