Candlewick Cotton ..........[learning left hand crochet]

Stool Cover



This is Strutts Candlewick Cotton made in UK in 1950s ; which I found on a recent visit to the thrift store. Since, it was something I had not seen before, I searched on google to figure out what the yarn was used for. I found out the period that they were manufactured, also there are pictures, such as ladies hats,bed spreads made out of this yarn.
While, I do not how long ago these were purchased; they do look like, that they are in original wrapping( bit yellowed) and there were 16 skeins in the bag. The colours have not faded, and yarn is in very good condition. 


The stool is from IKEA which I got awhile back. I used up all the yarn, made two separate pieces, and then joined with a single crochet. With the few remaining strands, I made tassels to add bit more chic to the cover. 


I quite like the way it turned out.

Thank you for stopping by,

till next time,
