Here he is – my first ever crocheted stuffed animal.
I loved creating this little guy… well, he’s not very little at 18″ sitting.
I especially love commissioned work that allows for free flowing creativity. My only guidelines made this project delightful: stripy and multi-colored in boy colors.
Since I am used to making crocheted animal hats, the head, horns, and ears weren’t very difficult. It did take a fair amount of fiddling to get the legs to hang how I wanted.
They needed to be perfectly floppy.
I achieved perfectly floppy but it required less stuffing than I thought. The yarn ends from each stripe filled it out pretty well.
I can’t wait to ship him off – there’s a newborn baby boy waiting for him!
Next up: Crocheted stuffed monkey.
After that? I may have to write some amigurumi patterns…
Which stuffed animals have you crocheted?
