…but in November I was crocheting robins!
They had come to a pause until I found toy stuffing in a local shop (Darn it and Stitch in Oxford.) Haberdashry shops are few and far between these days. The robin pattern was found in the Christmas makes editon of the excellent Let’s Get Crafting Knitting and Crochet magazine. For the first robin I used the kit wool, and copied the instructions. Then I bought a cheapo ball of brown acrylic for the second; after all robins are not yellow and red! I tweeted the designer, Lynne Rowe, at the time and she said she had run out of other colours to use in the yarn kit, which is sold with the magazine. Fair enough, as the pattern is the most important thing.
I needed to think about what to use for his eyes and then sew up his bottom properly!
The ‘evil’ crocheted robins!
I will have to invest in some toy eyes if I make these again…
See you soon,
