Hi everyone :)
I am sending an update for Nellie. I was kindly alerted to a typo on page 22 of the pattern. If you have already printed your pattern, please don't re-print it...there is no need, just scratch out one word and write the correct one on your pattern.
If you look at page 22, the text next to the first two photos says:

"Forming the neck
Join the first neck PENTAGON on two sides, as shown on the left, starting at the pink arrow point. This motif will be called the "Top of Neck" motif.

This should read:
"Forming the neck
Join the first neck HEXAGON on two sides, as shown on the left, starting at the pink arrow point. This motif will be called the "Top of Neck" motif.

So, just replace the word "pentagon" with " hexagon" and your pattern is all updated...
Happy crocheting folks!

Nellie is the fourth 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 toy. I love this African Flower pattern and the creative possibilities of using it to make 3D items ? Nellie is made using four different African Flower motifs: Hexagon, Pentagon, Heptagon and Octagon. She is also an excellent stash buster project, as you only need to use very small amounts of leftover sock yarn to make a motif.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Nellie measures approximately 37cm measured nose to tail, and approximately 14cm high at the shoulder..

Materials:

  • +/- 120g of yarn, all different scraps and colors
  • Fingering weight yarn has been used

You Will Also Need:

  • 2.0mm crochet hook
  • Basic sewing notions
  • plastic pellets
  • polyester stuffing
  • Wire looped glass eyes 10mm
  • 4 pieces of cotton fabric 10x10cm
