July Amigurumi CAL Supply List and Preview - Moth Madness!

Posted on July 08, 2017 by Brenna Eaves | 0 Comments

Hey everyone, it's Brenna from Little Raven Fiber Arts, comin' in hot this month with some fun moth facts! Did you know there are more than 11,000 moth species in the United States alone, which is more than all the bird and mammal species in North America combined? They come in so many sizes and colors, I thought it would be the perfect little summer stashbusting project to share with y'all in July, which also happens to play host to National Moth Week (July 23-29)! 

Throw away those mothballs, you'll want these sweethearts to stay!   

 

This week is just a quick rundown of what you'll need so you can be ready when the pattern launches on July 22!  Add this pattern to your Ravelry favorites to stay up to date on pattern releases and to share your pictures.  

Materials

• Stash yarn! Most of my stash is worsted weight acrylic or wool, so that's what I used for my moths. You can use any weight yarn you have lying around and want to use up, just grab the hook to match.

I recommend a variegated yarn for the wings, it makes them pop!  

• Crochet thread for antennae (optional - you can do thread crochet antennae or just use scrap yarn, there will be instructions for both)

• Hook to match your stash yarn: for my worsted weight yarn I use my Furls Odyssey in size G (4.0mm) to keep my stitches tight (so you can't see stuffing peeking through!). 

• Stuffing

• Black fabric paint (preferably in a bottle with a squeeze tip)

• Yarn needle

• Scissors 

• Sewing pins (optional but recommended for pinning the wings)

 

The pattern becomes available July 22, 2017, in the meantime ball up those scraps and get ready for the moth invasion! If you haven't already, stop on over to our Facebook Group and connect with me and hundreds of other Furlers, ask questions, share your progress, get inspired! We'll see you back here July 22!

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!
