Deer pattern

Creating patterns has been my job for over four years now, but still it never feels like a chore. Starting something new always gets me so excited and my heart jumps with joy when I finally get to show you what I've come up with and you love it as much as I do. Thank you!

Free Pattern: Zombie Bunny

Do you guys still remember this zombie bunny? I meant to publish the pattern here over a year ago, sorted through the photos and everything, and then comlpetely forgot about it. But then I got a message on Ravelry a few days ago, reminding me I need to actually write down and publish it, seeing as it's useless sitting in a folder on my computer somewhere.

I am making an effort to be better at this organizing thing, I promise, but I don't think I'll ever be brilliant at it :) My brain just doesn't want to hold on to little details like stuff that needs to get done or deadlines or names or my anniversary. But enough rambling, here's the pattern:

One pattern, different yarns

One great thing about crocheting toys is that the exact size is rarely important, which gives you the opportunity to experiment with all kinds of different yarns - use bulkier yarn (or crochet holding multiple strands of yarn together) and you'll get a larger toy, use finer yarn and you'll get a smaller toy, pick eyelash yarn for a fuzzy look, cotton or viscose for a nice smooth surface, alpaca or wool for a more natural and rustic feel. With just one pattern you can create so many different looks.

If you pick a yarn that is significantly lighter or heavier (i.e. finer or thicker) than the one listed in the pattern, you'll also need to adjust the size of the crochet hook and eyes, noses, joints or any other details you want to use, more about it below.

Small teddy bear

A few weeks back, I published a pattern for a smaller version of my bobble sheep. I enjoyed working on the smaller sheep so much, I decided to make smaller versions of some of my other patterns as well, starting with the classic teddy bear.
