Expand Your Micro Collection With This Micro Crochet Squirty Squirrel
Expand your Micro collection with this Micro Crochet Squirty Squirrel. This is a great, little Micro character and his acorn! He has been crafted using a size 0.75 mm crochet hook and size 8 crochet cotton thread.
We all love our larger and more cuddly amigurumi characters, but things have also got a little smaller in the amigurumi world and Micro amigurumi is really the latest and most innovative thing in crochet, and it’s growing!
It’s as completely unique type of crocheting, but the results are utterly amazing and the projects no less interesting. You can basically ‘Micro’ any amigurumi character, so we thought we would find some Micro FREE patterns for you to make a start, if you haven’t already.
To purchase Micro characters, they can be very expensive, due to the time and tremendous concentration needed. If you can manage to adapt to this skill, they will make perfect craft sale projects.
The designer for these fabulous squirrel is Ulijana Semikrasa, over at Double Treble Trinkets. To access her FREE written pattern, direct from her website, please click here: Little Squirrel Pattern
An additional comment from the designer: ‘you may wish to make the body and the head separately and stitch them together afterwards’.
