Making Stuff: A Long-Legged Friend {crochet project}

by This is Carrie on November 19, 2012

Before now, I’ve ventured into the world of crochet amigurumi only twice in the 20 years I’ve known how to crochet (1, 2). Enter Long-Legged Friends. The long legged animals and Japanese sensibility make this book irresistible. Amigurumi #3 was inevitable.

Pattern: Fluffy Poodle from Long-Legged Friends Book

Yarn: Lion Brand Yarn Silky Twist in Olive (with it’s great texture, this yarn really made the animal)

Absolutely adorable and wonderful. I am a knitter but keep wanting to learn to crochet when I see projects like this. Love it!

He’s adorable! I love his curly fur and his floral bow. :)

That is fabulous. I saw the picture and had to know what yarn that was. It definitely makes the animal.

Hi – I wouldn’t usually link to my blog but I’m sure your crocheted friend must be related to Primo who posted on my blog this week! LOL

This is lovely! I just bought the book for myself. I’m going to try and find the yarn you used. What size hook did you use? The book uses 2.75mm but that is just too small for me!
