This pattern is written in UK terms and instructions are given in the round. US terms are given below in the ‘Abbreviations’ section.
You will work in a spiral, similar to amigurumi. This means you will not join the end of each round with the beginning unless explicitly stated.
DC = UK double crochet (US = single crochet)
Ch = chain
Ch-sp = Chain space
St = stitch
Sts = stitches
SlSt = slipstich
TC = UK treble crochet (US = double crochet)
You will need:
- 3.5mm crochet hook (I use a KnitPro Waves hook which you can get here)
- 125m (137yards) of any Yellow DK Weight yarn. I used Stylecraft Special DK in Sunshine.
- 75m (82yards) of any Orange DK Weight yarn. I used Stylecraft Special DK in Jaffa.
- Any White DK Weight yarn. I used Stylecraft Special DK in White.
- Yarn Needle for those pesky ends! (These with big loops for eyes are my favourite add-on EVER!)
