wip - I'm still joining



The image is too bright, but I like it. I am about 35% finished with joining.

This is made with ecobutterfly pakucho organic color grown cotton. I'm just waiting on the the natural so I can put all of the squares together. I'm really enjoying this.

My inspriation is from here:
pigstails.blogspot.com/2013/06/throw.html

But I used this granny square pattern: www.melanie-eman.com/2014/04/circle-center-granny-square-... that I modified by skipping one of the 48 stitch round rows so I would have a smaller square.

Each square is then crocheted with double crochet and then joined with slip stitch.

The pattern is Sarfari friends by Chris de Longpré on ravelry.

The yarn is Cotton-ish in white. The guage is light - 3. I used size 2 knitting needles so they would be small with a tight knit. They range from 6 - 8 inches.

The lion is really cute. The patterns are great, I had a bit of trouble at first with the mane as I'd never done loop stitch in the round or in knit.
The elephant face isn't so great. I may take the trunk off and try for a softer stitching.

I don't have a need for toys, but I do like small things.
