Crochet Mystery Challenge: Week 3 & 4

Look! Louie has more parts.


I’ve been busy trying to finish poor ol’ Louie and I’ve managed to complete all of the necessary parts to reveal his true identity (if you haven’t already guessed).

I’ve had so much fun crocheting along and doing each mystery clue, that I forgot how tedious putting together something like this can be. A few minutes ago I was sewing the legs together and became a bit frustrated. Oh well, It’s too late to back down and besides, it’s looking cuter and cuter.

The deadline to enter this cute mystery creature into the challenge is May 6th. The winner will be randomly selected and will win a bag full of yarn and other goodies! How cool is that?!

I expressed this last detail to my husband and he said, “That’s what the winner gets? I thought they’d win money.”

“Honey, yarn is worth more than money.”

Crochet Circle Pillow

I had a circle pillow that just wasn’t doing it for me or my living room. I recently added greens and blues to my living room to give it a little lift, but I still had a red decorative pillow. I didn’t want to get rid of it and I didn’t want to go buy fabric to refashion it, so I crocheted a cover.

I worked dc increasing as I needed to to make it flat. To make the ribbing effect, I worked on back posts only.

I worked different yarns but I managed to make it work. I continued until it was the right size and made another identical circle for the back. I then sc both together. You can also make a border if you’d like. I decided to keep mine like that.

And that was it, another crocheting solution.
