and the thought of sitting at my desk literally made me throw up in my mouth.
I know. You don't care, so here's the actual post:
I got a request for a crocheted Mickey Mouse a week or so ago,
and thought it would be fun, so what the hey.
Only problem was, I've been waaaaay too busy with saint dolls to sit down and work out the pattern myself.
Luckily for me, I found this gem.
|I mean, come on... the tail!|
This Etsy shop has a TON of crochet patterns for all of your favorite characters
(I'm basically coveting this Paddington Bear),
and if they're half as nice as this one for Mickey,
I would highly recommend them.
This guy turned out great, thanks to some really clear instructions and simple crochet stitches.
While it's perhaps not for the crochet beginner,
it's not as difficult as it looks,
and if you can follow a simple pattern,
know your single, double, half double, and single decreases,
you are good. to. go.
The pattern maker hails from Hong Kong, but the directions were in perfect English
and although I wasn't able to use the exact yarn and hook size she uses,
it still came out great.
This was due largely to the fact that she uses measurements by stitch count and not just centimeters.
Therefore, I'm fairly certain that you can adjust this pattern to any size by changing the weight of the yarn and using the appropriately sized hook.
|Body Parts. Creepy.|
Anywho, here are some pics of how it all came together.
|Facial Parts. Also kind of creepy.|
|Now he's coming together.|
*I was in no way compensated for this review. I paid for it fair and square, so you can be sure of my unbiased opinion, and it is just that... an opinion. I simply found this pattern, tried it, liked it, and and now recommending it. :)
See ya next time, folks!
