Last Minute Father's Day Gift and New Pattern On The Way
Yesterday was Father's Day and I spent about 4 hours crocheting this moose. I was to be at my parent's house by 5:30pm and I believe I put in the final stitch at 5:15pm. Talk about flying by the seat of my pants!
I had a body and head already made for a project I had abandoned, thank God for that! And I also had the overalls already made. I stripped them off a bunny. Poor naked bunny now sits with no pants, lol.
So the 4 hours went into the snout, limbs and those antlers. It was the antlers that sucked up most of the time. I tried so many different shapes but I'd just rip them out and try another and finally I got something I liked, and they are fairly easy to make too. I think he turned out pretty cute! So of course there's a free moose pattern on the way :)
If you'd like to get started why not make the overalls, those are a free pattern already available right here. Just keep in mind to use the same yarn weight and
hook size you plan on making your moose with.
Here's Art in the car on the way to meet my Dad. My youngest son made sure to put a seat belt on him, safety first!
And here they are meeting for the first time. My Dad laughed and laughed when he pulled Art out of that gift bag. I couldn't have asked for a better response!
I'll call it a night now, it's almost 2am and I'm about to fall asleep right here at my desk. I hope you enjoyed meeting Art and come back soon to get his pattern!
UPDATE! Pattern has been posted
