Ariadne the kelpie lives in a pool behind a waterfall. She spends her days diving with her pet goldfish and collecting pebbles. She dreams of visiting the seaside, so that she can make crowns out of seaweed.

Ariadne is a good cuddle size, she measures approximately 9 inches to the tips of her ears in a DK weight yarn. However, she can be made from any weight yarn and appropriate hook for different sizes. This is not a pattern for beginners, but it is an easy pattern to follow with plenty of photos, and if you run in to any problems you will always be welcome to contact me for any extra help.
