These adorable little crochet kits are a collaboration between Son’s Popkes and Lucy Locket Land! The patterns are written in standard US crochet terminology but you can find easy conversion charts online.
Sonja’s original designs use Lett Lopi yarn and a 3.5mm hook but in these special kits I have miniaturised the animals and you have the option of using either DK Adriafil Regina merino with a 3mm (or 2.5mm) hook or 4ply Scheepjes Catona cotton with a 2.5mm (or 2.25m) hook (please choose a smaller sized hook if you find your crochet tension is quite loose – you want your crochet to be dense for these toys so they keep their shape and conceal the stuffing)
This change in yarn will affect the final look of your animal and if you are using cotton you will not get the brushed, furry look of Sonja’s original designs.
The stuffing included in each kit is made from 100% carded wool ball supreme toy stuffing which can be washed at up to 60ºc
Sonja has some fabulous tips for the different techniques used over on her website along with some lovely free patterns too www.sonspopkes.com
