How to Attach An Existing Crochet Project to Fleece

If you had intentions of matching a crochet project to the fleece for a backing. In previous articles, I have shown you how to measure and cut the fleece already.

I have also shown you how to do the first round of the fleece to prepare it to be attached. See the articles listed below if you haven’t got this far yet.

Now, we are going to attach the fleece to the crochet project.

  1. Lay the fleece down so the wrong side is facing up. The good side should be facing down as that’s the side you want friends and family to see after the attaching is complete.
  2. Lay down your project on top of the fleece with the good side facing up. This is the side your crochet project that you want your friends and family to see when complete.
  3. Using the same size hook as the original crochet project. Start in a corner and slip stitch through the corner of the project and ch-2 corner of the fleece. Ch 1, sc in same space. Sc across the project in each of the crochet stitches and equally spacing the stitches into the fleece side. You will notice the stitch counts don’t match the fleece but if you equally space the stitches into the fleece, you can get away with a lot as it’s barely noticeable on the fleece side.
  4. In corners, sc, ch 2, sc in each. Continue around in the same manner to attach.
  5. Once around fully, you can continue your project as normal for additional border work or stop if you feel like it. You are the artist, you know what is best for you.

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.
