Pattern Details

This is a .pdf crochet pattern, written in standard American crochet terms, for Bamse the hamster. With basic crochet skills you will be able to make this realistic looking squeaky little fellow. Size 5 inch/ 13 cm, made with worsted weight yarn. THE CROCHET PATTERN CONTAINS An intro with useful info. List of materials, tools and accessories needed. Brand and colour numbers of the needed yarn. A clear and colour coded description of how to crochet and assemble the animal. Pictures and illustrations to help getting everything right. All my patterns are text edited for correct English and have been tested by an experienced crocheter before publishing. SUPPLIES NEEDED For this hamster you'll need worsted weight yarn and an E US/3.5 mm crochet hook and DK weight yarn for the pink hands and feet (same hook). You'll need three colours of yarn: grey beige (1/3 of a 100 yard skein), just a little bit of light grey and a leftover strand of light pink. The quantities are estimates. For the eyes I've used 8 mm animal eyes. I sewed a pink nose with grey beige outlines. You will also need fibrefill and pellets for a bit of extra weight in the body (I use Hama beads). Lopi colour numbers: 0085, 0054 and Phildar partner 3.5 colour poudre. PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Istex Lett lopi. I strongly recommend using a fuzzy yarn because it gives the best result. GAUGE Gauge is unimportant for this pattern. If the pieces are crocheted tightly enough, they will not gape visibly when stuffed. You can make a little test swap to be sure.

Hello and welcome to my shop. With my easy patterns you can make whimsical crochet animals. For each of my designs, my goal is to create a doll that resembles the real animal, but is also playful with its own character and easy to make for everyone. The yarn I work with is pure wool. The natural and hairy texture of it gives these animals their fuzzy rustic appeal. All Son's Popkes crochet patterns are .PDF files that include detailed written instructions to crochet the animals, together with useful info, a list of materials, tools and accessories needed, brand and colour numbers of the needed yarn and pictures to help getting everything right. If you need some help or just would like to ask something, I am availeble by email. The .PDF patterns will automatically available for download after you've paid. At http://sonspopkes.com you can find my blog with extra info about my patterns, free patterns, tips & tricks and a lot more useful information regarding my patterns.
