Can you tell what it is yet?

I have started my gecko!

The instructions are written in a way I’ve never seen before but are really easy to follow once you get the hang of it.

 

Crochet gecko head

I’ve gone for bright tropical colours.

You are advised to stuff it as you go along, which I’ve done. It’s nice to see the shape forming as you go.

I’m looking forward to progressing it along tonight.

Just a reminder of my inspiration.

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

  3. Dear Lucie,
    thank you for publishing the test-crocheters and my gecko-pictures on your blog! You’ve chosen very nice colours for your reptile. I’m very curious about your animal, if it is done. And I would be delighted, if you’ll show your finished gecko in my gecko-gallery on ravelry.

    • Your gecko has been hugely popular. I also pinned it to my Pinterest board and it seems to have gone world wide! It’s a wonderful pattern.

    • I am having great difficulty with this pattern. Do the nobs on the back line up all the way down its body or do they rotate around the body slightly. I really want to complete this but I am so stuck I cant figure it out. I have been crocheting and pattern reading for around 30 years, but this one has gotten the best of me:(

      • I too found that my knobs rotated which I didn’t like. I thought it was just me!
        So I went with instinct and put my knobs where they looked the best. Because of the increases and decreases they never line up completely but always within a stitch.
        Hope that helps.

  4. Hi Lucie,
    thank you very much for your compliment! 🙂

    Now, I’ve started a new knitting project: a lifesized girl and a boy-doll, they can wear kids-clothes in size 74/80 (where are you from? — Are there the same sizes as in Germany?)

    You can see the very first (still naked) doll here on my blog: http://www.blumenbunt.blogspot.de/2013/08/neue-nacktbilder-und-ein-tolles.html
    Thank you for visiting my blog.

    Best wishes,
    Raphaela

    • Wow! It looks amazing. I’ll be following your progress and include it on one of my blog posts.
      I’m from the UK. Children’s sizes here generally follow ages. 2 to 3 years, 3 to 4 years but sizing is not very consistent.

  5. Lucie, maybe you are interested to test my translated knitting-instruction? If my six German testknitters will be finished their dolls, I will look for a native speaker to correct my translation into English — to avoid some stupid mistakes in my instructions . . . 🙂
