I thought I'd have a break from crocheting by doing some crochet ;)
What I mean is I put my amigurumi designs and pattern writing to one side for an afternoon and joined in with Ravelrys freaky amigurumi group crochet along.
This months pattern is a free pattern zombie bunny from a blog called the theory of creativity.
Its been ages since I've followed a pattern and this wasn't written quite how I write my patterns so at first it took me a while to translate it to my way of making amigurumi. This was fine and I got cracking with some yarn I had left over from my Offalump. There wasn't a hook size suggested but I use my trusty 3.5mm for everything I make so I just used that. I had a bit of a problem with the instructions for the second ear. If you can see in the above photo the felt goes into the ear and the pattern seems to be a way of making a hole in the ear. I must admit I could see what the designer was getting at but I couldn't make it happen by following her instructions so I fudged it and made up my own way. I'm really please with how my Bunny's bullet hole ear turned out.
Quite a few people on the ravelery group had used embroidery thread instead of felt for the detail and I really liked that idea so I shamelessly stole it :)
So drum roll please........ complete with spooky camera effect here is my attempt at the zombie bunny
