Awwwww! just look at this little sweetie! This is Leila the pony, a pattern by Lillellis, and the fourth pattern I have followed from the book
Regular followers will know that I only started crocheting in February of this year, inspired to teach myself by all the really cute amigurumi designs I’d seen on the internet. This book contains 15 lovely designs, by 12 designers, ranging in ability, and Leila is the fourth project I’ve completed from this book – here are the four I’ve done
Roary the tiger (by A Morning Cup of Jo); Johnny the monkey (by Pepika); Leila the pony and Wasabi the bunny (by Little Muggles).
Each one has been a learning curve, but I have to say, I think Leila is my favourite so far. In the book she is worked in beige & brown yarn, with brown eyes and a pink mane & tail.
The original also has fabric sewn to the inside of her ears, something I chose not to add.
My version of Leila has been worked in baby pink with grey hooves, blue eyes with a shocking pink and purple mane & tail.
The reason I chose these colours . . . Leila will be gifted to our 7 year old neighbour, Cléo for Christmas and, Cléo’s favourite colour is pink.
I am gradually building my crocheting skills, and also building up a collection of the Zoomigurumi books. So pleased I finally took the plunge and learned to crochet because I really am having so much fun. I don’t know yet what my next project will be . . . so many lovely designs to choose from! But I expect it will be something very bright and from the Monster book.
