knit + crochet design week: finished design.


happy monday!

i apologize for missing out on the final day of knit + crochet design week but major spring cleaning was necessary this weekend so i had to put my hook and yarn up and keep the computer off for a few days to get caught up again around here.

i had a great time taking part in knit + crochet design week and will definitely take part again next year if Stacey decides to host it again. it was fun taking a design from sketch to completion and seeing how other designers worked through their own design process! lots of great information was shared and i learned so much... be sure to check out all of the designers that took part and see what they created!



spikey fish:
approx. 9" from lips to tail
Lion Brand Baby Wool (Papaya, Orchid, Sprout)
Bernat Statin (Snow, Ebony)


i had so much fun designing this spikey puffy lipped little guy and i'm really happy with how he turned out! i may add some more spikes to him... but every time i add a spike i don't like how it lines up with another feature on the face, so we'll see. 

i'm planning on writing up the "puffy" fish pattern soon but i need to take my time with it to make sure it's completely accurate. there is a lot of joining and i don't want to share a pattern that isn't 100% clear.

i hope you enjoyed taking a peek at my process! you can see all of my posts for knit + crochet design week here...

last week i mentioned a giveaway and it's coming up this week as well as a few new sewing projects i've gotten started on.  

much love!

Your fish turned out great! He looks like he needs his own theme song and weekly cartoon show! Great job.
