I've been watching too much craft tv and there seems to be an upsurge in crochet on there so I decided to give it a whirl. I've never so much as picked up a needle before, but very quickly got bored with making little squares, within a day I'd found this cuties pattern and a couple of youtube videos, around 50g of DK wool a 4.5mm hook for him and 3.5 for the eyes and days later I have this little fella.
the eyes I adjusted from a pattern here: the blog makes 3 different disks which you sew on top of each other, but they were too bulky and didn't look right with him being so small, so I just did them as one continuous circle, changing the colours as I went,
when I stuffed him he didn't like sitting down, so i made a food free version of a beanbag, heavier than a polystyrene one, and stuffed it in his bum, he now sits and keeps me company.
Hope you like him and enjoy the rest of your weekend
