This month, at The Crochet Crowd, the crochet mystery challenge was called “Who’s In Your Closet?” The pattern called for worsted weight yarn and 5.00mm hook but I decided to use thinner yarn and a smaller hook. I had this mystery yarn I got from my sister and I figured it was time I put it to use. The yarn didn’t have a label but I’m going to guess it’s DK/light worsted, wool/acrylic blend. For the hook I used a size 3.50mm. This was my first time making a stuffed toy using the back loops only – took a few rounds of getting used to and remembering not to crochet how I normally do.
The pattern was very easy to follow and it was fun to guess what it could be. The first week it started out with feet and legs, which I thought would be for a duck. The next clue added arms and “nubbly things” and then I was just stumped. I was pleasantly surprised when the mystery creature turned out to be a one-eyed monster!
Another first for me was making hands/feet that big and with individual fingers/toes. That was my favourite part and I love how cute and funny they look!
There’s still a week left before the challenge is over so if you’re feeling up for a fun challenge head over to The Crochet Crowd pattern page.
