Last month, we co-hosted a Crochet-along with FreshStitches in the Friends of Spud and Chloë Ravelry group! Participants chose their favorite colors of Sweater yarn to create their own adorable dino friend using the Spikey the Stegosaurus pattern by Stacey Trock. CAL participants showcased their creativity through their choice of yarn colors, photos, and modifications – and some quick stitchers even made multiple dinosaurs during the course of our CAL!
While we’d love to share every single finished project shared here in our group, we’ll just highlight a few unique entries to inspire you to pick up your hook and get stitching! First, LittlePandCompany shared a creative photo of her WIP, which was apparently unearthed recently on an archeological dig! The resulting dinosaur is a rather handsome fellow in Jellybean and Pollen Sweater yarn.
Alkasmelsah used buttons instead of safety eyes to put a unique spin on both of her finished dinosaurs. She chose two bold color combinations to create her stripey Stegos in Sweater: Barn and Pollen (top) and Moonlight and Lifejacket (bottom):
Most of our CAL participants had never crocheted with our Sweater yarn before, and we were pleased to hear a lot of praise as finished photos were posted! We look forward to seeing more crochet creations shared in our group; if you’re looking for a quick project, be sure to add Spikey the Stegosaurus to your queue!
For those of you who don’t crochet, don’t worry! We’ve got an exciting knit-along in store for you this fall, and we’ll be announcing the details soon on the Spud Says blog. Stay tuned!
