Pinky the Lamb

Project Description

What was your source for this crocheting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Pinky the Lamb Link to website or photo What are you most proud of? Had never made a toy before, and never heard of the loop stitch. Learnt a lot doing this. Confirmed that I still like crochet more than sewing!!!!! Love the final product, will do more for presents. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Read the instructions carefully. I looked for loop stitch instructions on the internet, which confused me, because these loops are done using the thumb and pulling the loop forward. Instuctions on page 5 could be clearer, but practice and you will get it right. I chose to stuff the head after round 20, but then continue (1sc,sc next 2st together). It was a neater look than sewing the ends together. Definetly crochet ends in as you are going, it saves having to turn the pieces inside out to sew in ends. I thought Pinky looked better without the bell. I sewed the mouth one stitch at a time as it wont get pulled off by a child.
