My daughter has already put this on her FB timeline and tagged me so I thought I better pop this on my Blog. I'm loving crochet at the moment and I can't keep making granny squares for blankets so my daughter suggested making toys.
I saw this book on C&C ages ago briefly has flicked through the channels which was selling it with some very expensive alpaca wool, then Jak made some, reminding me about the book. So brought it from Amazon its called Edward Managerie.
I can say there were times I nearly threw it in the bin especially has I realised I had made it the wrong way round and unpicked it yet again. I also seem to twist the limbs whilst going in rounds. I've used ordinary cheap double knitting wool it doesn't give the natural look the alpaca would give but keeps the price down if I give them away.
The worse thing is stitching the legs on so that they would sit unaided so I would recommend that you made a weighted bag to stuff inside which is suggested. I haven't got any weighted beads yet but that the plan when I hubby get time to take me to Hobbycraft.
