I’m done with amigurumi for a while but I’ve saved the best (and the most fiddly) til last.
This is Clyde. As named by my husband.
If anyone is in any doubt; he is an orangutan.
And I love him.
This is the original
I was going to give him a trim but rather like him ‘shaggy’.
His ‘fur’ is made by looping the yarn around your finger every 3rd or fourth stitch to create a loop which really slowed my usual crocheting pace down. I was so glad to complete him!
You cut through all the loops at the end, once you’ve sewn him together – also fiddly!
He’s already made some friends
And is ready to be parceled up for the imminent arrival of a new member of our family.
Lets not forget Elijah. I didn’t add to his ears!
I’m ready to put away the crochet hook……for a little while.
Love, Lucie xx
