I absolutely cannot make any more crochet flowers.
I need to, to boost my stocks for the shop and the stall, but no. I am done.
So what to make next?
Why a blue monk(ey) of course.
(brown is so last season, don't you think?)
This little monk (all monkeys are called 'Monk' in my house) uses one 50g skein of Rico cotton- (so quite a thrifty make, really) and loads of US Single Crochet/UK Doubles (easy, too).
This had me wondering whether the same pattern would work with an odd 50g ball of Noro Kureyon I had lurking in my woolly piles (from my amazing Noro-tastic treasure found in a charity shop yonks ago).
Not a Monk, but A Kureyon Kat!
(using the same pattern, but with a slight variation on the ears)
And in fact, the pattern makes this doll, too:
A one-size-fits-all kind of pattern. Just change the ears/tail/hair combos...
..... So that got me thinking-
And I feel a bit nervous asking you all, but..
Would anyone like the pattern?
No, bit of a boring post.
Would anyone like a tutorial?
No, that would be a ginormous task, so..
.....does anyone fancy a Crochet-A-Long with me ....?
I thought I might explain a little bit of the pattern each week, with a photo tutorial (suitable for beginners and pro's alike) and we could all make a little monk/kat/doll/whatever-you-fancy together...?
I'll break it into manageable steps with a week or so between each post to give you plenty of time to ask questions and have a go.
I'd love to know if anyone's interested.
And yes, that is a crochet flower on Monk's head.
I know, I know. I can't help it.
Someone call the crochet police and have me put away.....
