This is my spin on a design that has been floating around for a little while from PlurdenlandPlushies. There is no pattern for it that I am aware of, but I am sure you could find something similar from Ravelry or AmigurumiPatterns.
I used Alize Merino Royal yarn in cherry and black. You’d think a wool yarn would be stiff and scratchy, but this was the smoothest yarn I have ever used. You better believe I will be getting some more! I paired it with a 3.75mm stainless steel hook.
The eyes are actually white buttons. However, I recently came into possession of a UV lamp for nails, so I used a bit of the black gel polish on the buttons and sat them under the lamp for a few seconds.
Here are the progress shots of them.
I would like to take this moment to share a few other crochet and amigurumi projects I have done. These aren’t all of them, but they are some of my favorites.
If you have any interesting items that you’ve crocheted, you can feel free to share them! Or if you have any ideas you’d like to see made into a plushie, I can do my best to re-create it
Note: I still am not really comfortable with shipping things, so if you would REALLLLLLLY need to have something, just let me know and I can see what happens over summer vacation when we go to Bonn.
