The project uses Cabone Rings. I know what you are thinking, I didn’t know what they were either. They are just plastic rings found in a typical craft section. For myself, I was unable to locate them in my local craft store. So what does any crafter do, they improvise, of course.

I considered the usage of the ring and realize it’s more decorative than a stiff poster board like a cereal box would suffice. So I made my own rings. Here’s below on how I did that:

How to Make your Own Cabone Rings

Pretty As a Picture Crochet Frames. Find a cup or something round that is about 2″ diameter. Place the cup or object over the cardboard and trace around it. Then, you will, by hand, roughly sketch another ring about 1/4″ thick from the outside edge of the circle. The crochet will cover slight imperfections if you are not completely round.

Print your pictures in a square if you can or just take an existing photograph and trace a circle over it. The size of the square we used was 2″ x 2″. We did this on Photoshop.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.
