Here is my new friend - Snuggles the Cactus. Unlike other cacti, Snuggles is not pokey and he won’t hurt you…he is actually very soft, cuddly, and squishy, the opposite of what a cactus is. Snuggles is the only cactus you want to snuggle with!
FORMAT: PDF, 11 pages, 8.1 MB (mobile devices friendly). Language - English. The pattern is written row-by-row using US crochet terms. It also includes diagrams, step-by-step photos, and a conversion chart to UK terms.
SKILLS: Chain, slip stitch, single crochet, double crochet, popcorn stitch, bobble stitch, working in the round, increasing, decreasing, sewing.
GAUGE: 9 sc X 8.5 rows = 4” X 4” (10 X 10 cm), working with an 8 mm (L) hook & Bernat Blanket yarn.
Approximately 32” (81.3 cm) tall including pot.
If you wish to make a mini version of Snuggles, just find a thinner yarn and a smaller size hook. For example, I used slightly over 1 skein of Paintbox Simply Aran yarn (4/medium) with a 4.5 mm (G) hook for cactus and a 3.5 mm (E) hook for eyes & bow. Snuggles Junior turned out just about 11” (27.9 cm) including the pot. His pot is a Yarn Bowl by Loops & Threads from Michael’s, which fits perfectly.
