Notes

03 Jun
After a great Memorial Day in Louisiana, I thought a cute crawfish would be a good Father’s Day present for my pops.

The stretchiness of the yarn is a real PITA since I know I want this tight enough to not show stuffing. It kind of unravels a bit. Boo. Still luf it though. And the bright insane red is great for a boiled little crawfish.

OMG, this is so cute! I curled the tail a bit to make it more cooked-crawfish-like. The shaping in the pattern is brilliant, as are the finishing details (how to bend the legs, the knuckles on the claws, etc). ADORABLE!
