Hello, I'm Maffers. I've always loved soft toys and this continued beyond childhood. I'd find myself in antiques fairs snooping around for unusual toys to take home, with Friedrich Nietzsche (an angry lamb) and Quentin Breadmunch (an erudite duck) being my most prized finds. I crochet, by and large, to bring imagined toys into existence. I share some of my creations with close friends but I tend to form a steadfast bond with my toys as soon as they're finished and as such I generally can't bring myself to part with them.View all patterns by designer (17) »
Today we're introduced to Pig Whitman and Clark Jungleman. Different in many ways, these two are unlikely best friends, but they're united in friendship by their mutual love of Tom Waits and Western movies.
First, meet Pig Whitman, a humble swine with honest beginnings. He leads a life of toil and after a hard day tending his corn he likes nothing more than oinking his snout into a jar of whisky.
Next, let me introduce you to Clark Jungleman, a monkey with a penchant for haute couture. Fancying himself as quite the cosmopolitan young fellow, he idles away his days drinking cocktails and riding his bicycle through the streets.
These crochet patterns will become available for direct download as .PDF files upon purchase. Patterns are written out in full and only require knowledge of basic stitches. The finished toys stand at roughly 25cm and 28cm tall respectively.
