Pattern Description:

Captain Thibault, world-renowned botanist, makes transcontinental journeys to collect samples of rare flowers. Travelling far and wide in his Skywhale, he goes to great lengths to gather his beloved blooming and blossoming specimens. Upon his return home, he likes nothing more than a tall gin and tonic. The Skywhale, by contrast, only drinks milk; gallon upon gallon upon milky gallon.

This is the collection of crochet patterns for making ALL elements of Skywhale; the whale itself along with the basket and the captain.

The whale is 10" long. The captain is 5.5" tall. Altogether, the piece as presented in the images measures at a foot long from the top of the whale to the bottom of the basket.

Please note that all patterns are for personal use only.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • The whale is ~10" long. The finished piece is a foot tall.
