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) »
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.
