Although I am not included in this group, so many of my friends and family love to eat lobster (the cockroach of the ocean). I always knew what was for supper when the table was lined with garbage bags and the hammers come out. Even the local airport, Stanfield International Airport, sells live lobster. Louis Lobster represents Nova Scotia culture and he is named for the Fortress of Louisbourg where I worked during the summer in high school. Louis is 10" long and 4" wide and this pattern is set at an intermediate level (check stitches used below). Louis Lobster is made in 6 pieces: 2 claws (2 parts each), head & body, and 3 tail fins. Like most amigurumi, this piece is worked in a continuous spiral. ** What you should know ** 1. This pattern is written in clear North American terms. 2. Stitches Used: BPSC (back post single crochet; instructions given), chain, single crochet, single crochet decrease, slip stitch, 3. Instructions given for all stitches BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic crochet skills - slip knot, working in the round Basic sewing skills - any sort of stitch to attach the pieces and embroider eyes SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 10 inches long, 4 inches tall

I have been crocheting since my babysitter sat her down one afternoon when I was 7 years old. More than 22 years later, I still loves to pick up a hook and yarn. all items made are her own original patterns. I have two degrees (B.Sc. and M.Sc) in Biology. My university career taught me to be observant (the critical eye) and I use everyday observations, math, and my imagination when creating new designs.
