Have you ever yarnbombed a yarnbomb? I have!

Mo, a very sweet Blogworld friend, read my post about my trip to Genoa to see Intrecci Urbani and asked me whether I would take something crocheted along to put up on her behalf. I thought it was a great idea, so of course I agreed.

Mo sent me three hexagon crochet motifs and a dragonfly. The hexagons were leftovers from this blanket, done in a very soft luxurious naturallycaron yarn. The Dragonfly is the cutest little thing!

Her colours immediately reminded me of squares I had made for Rachel’s Crochet Along (which I had given up on….). I was planning to take one or two of my CAL blocks with me to Genoa anyway, so when Mo’s hexagons arrived I decided to combine our pieces into one! That way I could quickly attach our yarnbomb to wherever – thinking one big piece will be quicker to put up than six smaller pieces.

I used my Twin Stripes, Tiny Textures and Square Target squares from the CAL. I blogged about them, and others, here. Mo’s dragonfly was sewed onto the Tiny Textures block and I had a deep red Stylecraft DK in my stash that matched Mo’s hexagons perfectly, so I used that to crochet everything together.

I attached long pieces of yarn to 6 corners of the piece so that I could just tie it to wherever, without having to worry about doing any sewing.

On Friday I took our hexagons & squares yarnbomb piece with me when I went exploring in Genoa. John pointed out the bench below. It was one of only a few that hadn’t been yarnbombed. The perfect victim!

Hard at work, trying to be as inconspicuous as possible:

Sneaky, very sneaky:

Using simple bows to tie the piece to the bench worked really well.

And there you have it. Two Brits (Mo was there in spirit) yarnbombed the Intrecci Urbani Genoa yarnbomb. That’s how we roll 🙂
