Say Hello to CARL!

Carl spent his earliest childhood together with his family outside on the balcony. He loves balloons - despite their very short life expectancy. As a teenager, Carl discovered his extraordinary talent as a requisite for a world-famous fakir. This career ended abruptly because CARL decided to shave daily after he has been very definitely refused as a member of the “Free Hugs” campaign. Carl is enjoying his heyday as a drummer in a marching band now and is going to continue the pin-factory family business.

I wrote this crochet pattern for beginners too and I tried to be very detailed in my descriptions. I also included some charts to explain what to do.

CARL is approximately 12 inches tall. He is made out of cosy 4 ply sockwool, cotton wool and love. For your little cactus you can use every yarn you prefer - he’s getting taller or smaller but he’s always really cute!
