A crochet creature – part 3 (FO) 

Meet Nigel.  

Nigel, as you may have gathered is a reindeer.  


He’s crocheted arigumi style, and was, I have to say, a very easy make. You just had to get on and do it! He’s destined for my friend Josh, who I hope will like him a lot.  

Pattern: Arigumi Reindeer by Millionbells

Yarn: Countrystyle DK

Hook: 3.75

He just seemed like a Nigel. And now that’s his name. 

Oh and another doily!

So I *might* have ordered a job lot of Rico from Deramores. I just love their Cotton Essentials! 
I also bought a couple of balls of Katia Jaipur, which is a mercerised cotton. My niece recently confessed that her favourite shawl is the blues Jaipur one I made last year. So, I will make her another!  

Gorgeous isn’t it?!

My plan was to make my auntie a set of table mats using the Starflower Mandala pattern by Zooty Owl.  

 Yes that last picture is wrong side up!! Unfortunately it’s coming up too large. So I’m going to gift this to a friend and find another pattern for my aunt’s table mats. 

Can you tell I’m loving these bloomin’ things? Just don’t call them mandalas. I will cry.
