Crochet – Rubik’s cube

A very warm welcome my fellow hookers 🖑

Crochet is one of my favourite crafts. I had tried and failed for many years but when i decided to give it another shot about 5 years ago, it all just made sense to me and i finally got it!

Today I want to showcase ‘a big art attack’ that I created for a friend who always admired my finished projects. He had hinted many times that he wanted something handmade and didn’t want it to be an easy one 😂 WELL I took that quite literally..

So from there I bagan the exciting journey of wrecking my brain about what I could make that was totally different to anything I had ever seen or heard of before. I wondered could i crochet a massive rubiks cube?!

I DID IT! And loved every minute of it! Go on, give it a go!

Instructions:-

OK let’s get started. Firstly you will need 400g of each colour of the following yarn – Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, White and Orange. Also 200g of black for the boarder and to sew together.

Choose which colour you would like to use first and chain 26.

Row 1-25: Double crochet in second chain from hook, and into each chain space across, chain 1 turn (25)

Continue to make 8 more squares using the same coloured yarn and method as rows 1-25.

Using black coloured yarn work 1 double crochet into each stitch around the individual squares, to form a boarder.

Continue to work each colour in the same method as above ☝☝☝ proceed to sew the same coloured squares together.

You should have 6 sides of 9 squares on each. At this point we need to sew all the sides together – as shown in attached graph⬇ Now form the cube leaving the top flap open as we need to stuff it. (I used a duvet and pillows in mine, but toy stuffing is also an option). When you are satisfied with the amount of filling sew on the top flap. And there you have it, complete! 👍👌

please get in touch if you decide to make this as I would love to see your finished project!

Also check out the photos attached below of the finished piece⬇⬇⬇ I am so happy with how it turned out. I gifted this to my friend as a Christmas present. It is the most amazing feeling. The look of shock and amazement on someone’s face receiving a handmade gift that you spent soooooo long perfecting, just priceless. 😊

Happy hooking my lovelies! ❤
