December Amigurumi CAL Supplies List - Christmas Mouse

Posted on December 08, 2016 by Kristi Tullus | 0 Comments

WHAT ARE WE MAKING

Hello and welcome! I'm Kristi Tullus, the face behind a little amigurumi blog. I'm so excited to host the first ever Furls Amigurumi CAL, where we will be making this Christmas mouse.

This pattern is not too complicated and only uses the most basic stitches – chain, slip, single and double crochet stitch. If you haven't made toys before, some of the techniques may be new to you, but don't worry, I have little video tutorials of all the amigurumi specific techniques used and it's a great opportunity to learn all the basics of crocheting toys.

The pattern will be released in two parts, with the first part published on December 15th and the second part on December 22nd, just in time for Christmas.

If you have any questions, contact me at kristi@spire.ee, I am always happy to help. And if you haven't already, join us at our exclusive Facebook group, Fun with Furls.

 

WHAT DO WE NEED

Yarn. I used DROPS Nepal, a worsted weight alpaca and wool blend. You will need about 165 yards (150 m) or two skeins in 0500 light gray, 165 yards (150 m) or two skeins in 3620 red and 22 yards (20 m) or 1/4 skein in 1101 white.
But of course you can use any yarn you like, just keep in mind if you decide to go with something other than worsted weight, you will also need to adjust the size of your crochet hook and safety eyes.

Furls Odyssey size E / 3,50 mm crochet hook

Polyester fiberfill for stuffing

1/2" (12 mm) safety eyes

Dark brown and white cotton embroidery floss

Stitch marker (optional)

Embroidery needle

 

WHAT'S NEXT

Go ahead and gather your materials and tools and make sure to come back next Thursday, December 15th, for part one of the pattern, where we will be making the head, muzzle, ear, arms, legs and body.

A Note About Comments

Furls Crochet Team

November 9th, 2016

Hey everybody! Shortly into our CALs we realized that our out-of-the-box blog comment system wouldn't let us reply to your comments.

We've since installed Disqus, above, which allows you guys to respond to each other and us to reply to your questions; seems like a no-brainer!

We will continue to display existing comments from the old comment system on all existing blog posts. All future commenting will be done through Disqus. Enjoy!
