In our previous post, we shared how Ros paid a visit to the KPC studios in Hong Kong and brought home a set of yarn samples and swatch books. It has been a few years since the both of us started crocheting much more actively because of Operation Overhaul. This year, we thought we’ll challenge ourselves on the creative front.
Neither of us has any experience writing patterns or creating crochet designs from scratch, but we had many ideas and dream projects we wished to create. KPC yarn was quick to agree to sponsor us with their yarn when we shared that we wanted to create and share a collection of crochet animal doll patterns. All the dolls in this collection are made using the Gossyp DK and 4 Ply line from KPC Yarn.
Here’s a sneak peek at the 2D illustrations that we designed our dolls around.
After weeks of trial and error, frogging and crocheting daily while drafting the patterns, we’re super happy to have completed all 5 dolls! To kickstart our pattern writing and designing journey, all 5 of the crochet doll patterns will be free for download on our blog so that you can create your own long limb toy! Here’s a look at the actual crochet dolls together :)
We will be releasing the pattern for each animal every 2 weeks, starting with the Unicorn today. Here are more pictures of Kelsey the Unicorn!
