Pinky the Lamb

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 www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/pinky-the-lamb---crochet-pdf-pattern-amigurumi 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.

From your description, you put a WHOLE lot of love into Pinky. Are those hearts at the corners of her mouth? <3 Love the 'wry' smile.

Thanks, a little bit of care went a long way with Pinky. I just fluked the mouth (lol)
