For anyone who’s been following me for some time, you will recall that it took me a really long time to finish this pattern. I think it literally took me over a year to complete it. It’s very different from my previous animals and the biggest challenge for me was figuring out how to make and write up the body and legs. I can tell you there were multiple attempts and failures which often led to long non-crocheting periods where I was too discouraged to continue. Thankfully I was able to finish it up and tweak it to my satisfaction before submitting it to be a character in the newest Zoomigurumi book. I am so thankful to Joke Vermeiren for inviting me to be a part of her absolutely amazing series. Just take a look at the adorable dolls that you can crochet from Zoomigurumi 6!!
