I’ve been working on this fabulous wool scarf on my loom. I love how it turned out.

I am also participating in a crochet along. Meet Jose.

Crochet Stuffed bear.

He’s a giant pirate bear. Right now, he’s 20 inches tall. I’ve run out of stuffing and already have had to go purchase more yarn. This thing is huge.

Free Pattern

Awhile back I made a super cute monster that just wants a hug.

This is Clyde.

Note: Entire project is worked in the round. Use a stitch marker or a scrap piece of yarn to mark the beginning of each row. Then you don’t have to count every row. Do not join unless instructed to.

Parentheses indicate a repeat. Repeat the stitches in the parentheses for the number of times indicated.

The bracketed number [] is the number of stitches at the end of each row.

I spread my increases out so there isn’t a seam on the finished piece. If you do not like this method, you can do regular increases.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at drunkenauntwendy@gmail.com.
