The Whole Knit & Caboodle

Barely coherent ramblings of a yarn-obsessed stay at home mom

This Little Piggy..

on February 23, 2013

Amis are your friends!  At least they’re my friends.  I’ve been making a LOT of amigurumi lately.  My most recent guy is modeled after a certain storybook pig you might recognize.  It all started when I was asked by a local photographer to make a Piglet hat and diaper cover that she could use in her newborn sessions.  I poked around a little and looked at some really cute sets but (and being an indie designer myself I hate to admit this) I didn’t want to buy a pattern if I could come up with my own.  I was so happy with the hat that I was inspired to create a Piglet “lovie” (a mini blanket with a head and arms).  “How adorable would those cheeks be if done right?” I asked myself.  SUPER ADORABLE.  After I finished the lovie, I went on to write up a pattern for the rest of his body.

Pork 2 ways?

The pattern was sent off to my group of testers today and with any luck the pattern (which includes instructions to make both the lovie and the stuffie) will be up in my Ravelry and Craftsy shops around this time next week.  As with any of the new patterns I release, there’ll be a chance to win a copy and I’ll have an introductory special running for a few days.

Another little friend I finished recently was Patchy Patch, the favourite stuffie of Binoo, the cat from the show Toopy & Binoo.  I kinda love him too, even though we don’t often watch the show at our place.

He's a happy little guy :)

If I’m not careful, I’m going to become one of those old ladies who drives around with a million stuffies in their car’s back window.  You know the ones I’m talking about.  😉

Patchy Patch is now available on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/stores/the-whole-knit–caboodle

as well as in my Craftsy store: http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/crocheting/toy/patchy-patch/45169
