i’ve been taking a break from dolly stuff to whip up some crocheted cotton coasters and flowers for a class on dyeing that we will be teaching to our esl knitting/crocheting group. you should have seen the look on some of their faces when we announced the class. i quickly had to explain what a homonym was and that we were going to be coloring stuff, not killing them!

crocheted amigurumi bear

  • Posted on March 9, 2019 at 9:00 am

once again this year i decided to try crocheting a teddy bear for my girls using lace weight thread. i started with a bunch of patterns, used bits and pieces from each and did a lot of improvising

For a yarn that normally felts if you look at it wrong, this was surprisingly hard to felt. I tried several sessions of wetting then tumbling inn hottest dryer with lots of balls/towels to agitate, then spent 1/2hour+ wetting and rubbing till my thumbs were raw just to achieve a slightly fuzzy look. Moral of the story to keep mal lace from felting badly, crochet with a small hook!

he also came out a lot bigger than i had planned. i was hoping for a 3 inch bear when i started, but quickly realized he was going to be at least twice that size. i like him anyway, but he’s def too big for my girls to play with
