All you need is a crochet, a wooden stool (from grandma), colored yarn, small nails and a hammer.
It took me longer to find a good You Tube tutorial on how to crochet the "granny squares" pattern, than to actually make the whole thing. I followed Bethintx on her simple, calm, accurate and logical tutorial. Thank you, Beth!

No 1: My cat Anais thinks that all the shooting sessions are especially done for her. Hence, she graciously features nearly every picture.

Anyway, you get the idea on the versatility, usability and beauty of a crochet stool!
