Pattern Description:

Please note that this pattern is for an instant digital download option only...no physical pattern will be shipped !

Hi everyone,
I am so sorry, there is an update for the correct number of required motifs as outlined in the small requirements block at the bottom of page 12 of the pattern...please don't reprint your pattern, all you need to do is write down the correct number of motif on your already printed pattern...the Craftsy download has been updated. The listed requirements for each specific section of the pony construction are correct, it's just the little requirements block that was wrong.

Sorry for the inconvenience!
xxx Heidi

Fatty Lumpkin is the sixth of my patterns that makes use of the African Flower hexagon crochet motif and variations thereof, joined in a specific order to make a recognizable 3D item.
I love this African Flower pattern and the creative possibilities of using it to make 3D items :)
Fatty Lumpkin is made using three different African Flower motifs: Hexagons, Pentagons and Heptagons and has one triangle motif. It's also an excellent stash buster project, as you only need to use very small amounts of leftover sock yarn to make a motif.

The pattern shows you step by step how to create Fatty, using both photographs and written instructions.
