4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / From knit to crochet-Possum Love on: April 22, 2008 04:41:59 PM

I contacted the woman who originally made this pattern in knit form, and asked her if I could post the crocheted version that I converted.  She said ok. It was awesome of her to let me.   So here it is.  I hope you like it and pm me with any issues.  This is a first for me, so forgive any shortcomings.  Her link to her original pattern is here under rupetur.http://rupestur.livejournal.com/15177.html#cutid1

Row 2:   (yes, these are rows)   ch 1, 2 sc in 1st st, sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in last st, sl st in same st. (this helps to add curve to ear).


Finish off leaving 2 inch tail.  Now, the 2 strands should be close to eachother, so tie these together tight twice, (this helps cup the ear).


Tail  (almost done, yay!)


Magic ring 6, or ch 2 and 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook.

Continue rounds of 6 til you have the length you like.  If you want the tail to taper off, then just decrease to 4 sts  for last few rounds.  After you are satisfied with the length, ch 4 and sl st to first ch.  This is so you can hang your possum upside down if you like.  Enjoy!!!


Assemble as in picture.

Well, I was very inspired by babbetto, who's work is awesome.  This is my first attempt and it is not complete obviously, but I was just wondering if I am on the right track?  It seems like it looks much better in my head.  Ha.  I don't mind criticism, it's how you learn.  Thanks

These are some french beaded flowers I have made.  I was very intimidated to try them at first, but once I started, I realized that they really are not difficult.  They are made with glass seed beads.  Thanks for looking
