What are you most proud of? While I used a pattern for the main parts all the rest was trial and error. I am proud of how it turned out, and how closely it resembles my original sketch (but better!).

What advice would you give someone starting this project? You don't have to have it all worked out before you start. Once you have a rough idea then just jump in and work out the rest as you go. Even if you end up re-doing or throwing parts out it's not a lot of time or yarn wasted.

Thanks, I had a lot of fun making him!

I like his eyes!

Thanks, the eyelids are just semi circles worked flat - 3sc to begin then following the increase routine as for the 3d shapes but on half the number of stitches (but you have to turn at the end of each row instead of working in a spiral).

wow, what an awsome creature. How did you do the wings?

10/25/2012 Flag

Hi, the wings were the thing that took me longest to work out. In the end I did the usual 6sc into the ring, then another round of 6sc. On the next round I did 2sc in each stitch and then a final plain round. I made three of these little points then crocheted them all together (sc in 6st of 1st point, 2nd point, all around the thrid point then 2nd 6sts of 2nd and 1st points). I worked 1 round plain then started decreasing (2sctog 4sc on the first round) every round until there were 6sc left. I fastened off, squashed it flat and sewed the top together. I hope this makes sense!

Thanks Josie! Wlil give it a try with some left over yarn first. I need to crochet similar but longer wings for a hat.
