Hi guys! It’s been such a long time since I last posted – two months! Unfortunately real-life things (i.e. work, zzzzzz) took over a bit and I haven’t been doing as much crocheting. I also got a bit stuck on a dragon amigurumi, which I still haven’t finished, that put me off . However I’m back and have a new little guy to show you!
If you’ve been following me for a while, you might remember that one of the first things I made was a little bird. Whilst I love him lots, he is a bit on the holey side! So now I’ve learnt a little bit more, I thought it would be a good time to try again. Here is original little birdy with his new, even littler, birdy brother:
He is quite sweet! And, as you can see, a lot less holey. When I made the original, I didn’t know about different gauge yarn and hook sizes, so the hook I used was 2mm (!!) too big. This time I used a 4mm hook and the result was much better. Here are some more pictures of him:
I love the colour of the yarn, it’s very Spring-like :o) I’m pleased with how he turned out and it’s nice to see that I am improving at crochet. He was also really quick to make – about a week of crocheting on an evening. For anyone who didn’t see the original post, this pattern is part of the Amigurumi: Woodland Animals course through Craftsy.
