Project made with All Things You™ Baby Acrylic yarn in: Dark Turquoise, Candy Pink, Dove Grey and All Things You™ Essential Acrylic yarn in: Gold, Amethyst, Grass, Aran, Claret, Forest
Cut & thread yarn
Each square will require 8 yards of yarn for each plastic canvas square. For easier stitching, cut the yarn into two 4 yard sections to fill each square. Thread the yarn onto the needle and bring the ends together.
Using a long stitch pattern, stitch the yarn onto the canvas leaving a border of four squares on each side.
Weave the yarn ends through the back to secure. Repeat for each of the canvases with different colored yarn.
Arrange the finished canvases into three rows of three.
Attach & connect hooks
Attach a lanyard hook to the second square from the corner of each canvas. Connect the lanyard hook to the next yarn square, referring to the photo, until the grid is complete.
