Hermione #2! This time I went for pink with rainbow mane and tail. I think this version looks even better than the last one.
Yarn bombing seems to be a growing trend at the moment, which I am loving! It's such a great way to brighten up an area and have it forever changing as it can be so easily removed. I have picked a few of my favourites so far to share with you.
So my son is obsessed with Skylanders! But you can’t find any patterns for anything related to this game. So I decided to try to crochet him a Chompy, the small critter that features in the game. So, forgive me if this pattern is not 100% accurate as this is my first toy crochet pattern. The single crochets refer to the US version. If you have any problems with the instructions, please leave a comment or contact me and I’ll fix it/advise you. The teeth and fingers are just cut out from felt and sewn in. The eyes are just embroidered with a satin stitched.
Have fun with this little guy, it didn’t take too long to wip up, and uses less than half a ball of green dk yarn (100g), so leftovers would probably work.
He stands at 8″ high, including his eyes.
Each new line depicts a new row or round.

Check out this free pattern on Ravelry. It’s SO freaking cute, it’s not too difficult, but I wouldn’t recommend it for beginners. The original pattern does not come with the wings pictured as I added those myself. If you’d like to add them too I have included the instructions in this post below. Enjoy!..
Wings – 3.5 Hook (Make 2)
Sc in 1st chain, skip 1 ch, sc in next 15 to end, ch2 turn.
Skip 1 st, sc in next and following 10sts
Slip st in next st, ch2, turn.
Skip 1 st, sc in next and following 3 sts.
chain 1, work 3 dc popcorn st in next stRepeat x5 .. Chain3, turn.
Make 3 Trebles in spaces between the popcorn sts already made below, slip st inside next popcorn st belowRepeat x3
Tie off + Sew on ..OR.. Slip st straight onto side of the body along top edge of the wing.
On the second wing you will want to push the popcorn stitches out the opposite way to the first wing. So you get a pair, and not two the same.
