Tilly: the pattern
With extra chubby arms and legs, Tilly is a panda to snuggle. The extra layer of eye details offers the opportunity to play with lots of different patterns and color combinations! As the simplest of all the dumplings, she would be perfect for the new or beginners to crochet… And works up so quick, what a perfect last minute gift! ;D
This sweet little dumpling is the first pattern from the “ASK & RECEIVE” promo. Haven’t submitted your idea yet? go to my blog for the details on how to participate and win a free pattern! (thru 7/31/2010) dawntoussaint.blogspot.com
Tilly is a 6 inch panda. She’s crocheted together (not seamed) for extra durability, except for ears.
This pattern has 11 pages full of all the info an experienced crocheter would need to make this little treasure; including technique descriptions, illustrations, and photos. I would rate this as “beginner” , and requires only minimal embroidery skills.
Suggested materials: wool and wool blend yarn (worsted weight, at least 2 colors ~100 yds ea.), polyester or natural filling, 12-14 mm glass or plastic safety eyes, cotton fabric, and felt.
