My crochet gecko

He sits on the low cabinet in our living room but my partner says we might find him in another place the following morning as he’s sure he’ll come to life at night! Creepy!

He involved a lot of counting, so not one to do when holding a conversation.
The stripes and the bobbles helped find my place each time I picked him back up.

Filling the toes with tiny amounts of stuffing was very fiddly and I wasn’t expecting to have to sew the feet together but it didn’t take too long.

He is rather larger than i was expecting but I love him just the same.

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.

    Hi there I’m trying to make this little guy but my popcorn stiche’s don’t line up did yours? Perhaps a little advice is in order. Please help!

    • Hello there! I found I had the same problem. I think you’ll be finding the popcorns tend to twist around?
      I placed my popcorns where I though best. Because of the increases and decreases they will never align perfectly so a stitch in front or a stitch behind the previous one.
      It was a long time ago since I made this chap so I can’t be entirely precise but I remember adjusting the popcorns a little.
