Item:

Animal

Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • crocheting in rounds
  • single crochet stitch
  • increasing and decreasing

Pattern Description:

Pattern is written in English, using US crochet terminology. I included detailed instructions, many step-by-step photos and useful tips and tricks.

In this tutorial I will explain starting a piece with an adjustable loop (magic ring), finishing a piece, joining pieces, knotting and hiding yarn tails.

Gauge:

You can use the same pattern to make smaller or larger toys by using finer or bulkier yarns. Make sure to pick a crochet hook at least a size smaller than suggested on the yarn label and crochet tightly enough to achieve a tight gauge that will not allow the stuffing to show through the fabric.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 11 cm (4 1/3") with fingering weight yarn and a 1,75 mm crochet hook.

Materials:

  • Fingering weight cotton yarn, 125m/50g (143y/50g) / 1: super fine / 4 ply / 14 wpi. You will need about 23g of yarn for the body and 7g for the spikes.
  • 1,75 - 2,25 mm crochet hook (US thread hook size 5 - 1) or according to the yarn.
  • Polyester fiberfill, wool, wadding etc. for stuffing.
  • 9 mm (1/3") safety eyes or buttons, beads, felt etc.
  • Plastic egg from a Kinder Surprise chocolate egg.
  • Glass or plastic beads (1.5 - 3 mm).
  • Embroidery floss.
  • Yarn needle, scissors, stitch marker.
  • Ribbon, thread and sewing needle.

Suggested yarn:

75 meters of Fingering weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Madame Tricote
