Amigurumi zebra…

I’ve been wanting to introduce  this rather charming crochet zebra to you for a couple of weeks now, but I have been working overtime (urgh!!!). 

This is Abe…isn’t he just a dude?  I started hooking him a little while ago…my first foray into the world of amigurumi and most definitely not my last.

I really struggled to put him down, he was such a joy on my hook.  I absolutely loved every paintbox cotton stitch.  I have made a lot of mistakes and he certainly has taught me  a lot and for this reason he is mine to keep…I am a bit like a 4 year old child at the moment, moving him from room to room so he is with me!!!

I think the hardest part for me was sewing him together…Not only was it a bit like a zebra horror show, he proved to be a little tricky.

It was late in the evening and his ears were the first things I joined together for him.  I was feeling rather chuft with myself and  I didn’t make the sickening discovery until just before bedtime.  I lay there trying to go to sleep, but it was no good.  I had to get up and perform some late night intricate facial surgery.  It was silly o’ clock when I finally got back into bed, but worth the midnight oil not to wake up to such a silly mistake.

All in all I love this dude and I have found a suprising new love in amigurumi (crochet toys)… You can find the free pattern details at the bottom of this post.
