Project Description

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.

What you will need

  • 3.5 balls patons jet in green
  • small amounts of cream (patons jet) and charcoal (random aran weight)
  • 5mm hook
  • stuffing

Q&A with JosieE

congrats, it looks so cute, love the eyes with the eyelids
JosieE answered:
Thanks, I had a lot of fun making him!
evelyne.r asked:
wow, what an awsome creature. How did you do the wings?
JosieE answered:
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!
