Gift presents for kids: Fuzzy Bodies crochet tutorial

Amirugumi, Crochet, Holiday & seasonal crafts  |  August 25th 2011  |  0 Comment

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!: 
The main reason I never wrote this pattern before now is that there are so many different types of fuzzy yarn. There’s eyelash, fun fur, and loads of thicker soft fuzzy stuff. I don’t like patterns that make you use a hard to find, obsure, or expensive yarn. My personal favorite is Bernat’s Frenzy, but I’m pretty sure it’s discontinued and I can’t find it anywhere anymore, so for me to write the pattern to be used with Frezy would be kinda mean and pointless. Plus I’m cheap, so if you want to make it with mohair or something go right ahead, I’ll buy .87 cent skeins of fun fur instead. I won’t use patterns that make me special order yarn, so why should I make you?[/i]
So, gauge is going to be very important, as is the type of yarn you use.
If you use an eyelash or fun fur type yarn where the yarn is mainly fibers on a string (lightweight, not substantial), carry your WW yarn along with it.
However, if the fuzzy yarn you choose has bulk or is more substantial, such as Bernat’s Frenzy (personal favorite) or Hobby Lobby’s Paradox; or has another yarn built in, such as Bernat’s Baby Lash, just use this yarn, don’t carry your WW with it.
In the pattern I’m just going to say “Fuzzy Yarn” so for those who fall into the fibers on a string category, this means both yarns. And to those that fall into the substantial yarn category, just use the fuzzy yarn.
And if I’ve confused anyone too much with this, send me an email and I’ll do my best to help!
Gauge:
WW Yarn: 5 stitches across=1″ 6 rows=1″
Fuzzy Yarn: 7 stitches across=2″ 4 rows=1″

Right now there is only the bear pattern, but as I add on more animals you’ll just look below for which animal you’d like, find the pieces you need in the patterns below, then make and connect them.
