Weekends are perfect for days out with the kids. Climbing at playground, paddling in the pool, sandcastles on the beach, strolling through the forest and ice creams all round! A trip to the zoo is also a firm favorite for many. But now, to spare you the hours spent spreading peanut butter sandwiches, the high entrance fees and the long queue for the monkey house, we’re bringing the animals directly to you with our new Zoo Amigurumi CAL!
From 20th May, join us for the fabulous free Zoo Amigurumi CAL, designed by our very own amigurumi specialist, Annemarie Arts! Have you always wished for a pet giraffe or (gasp!) a crocodile? Then this CAL is just for you! For 6 weeks, we’ll be sharing a new animal pattern each Wednesday right here on the blog. By the end of the CAL, you’ll have a colorful family of 6 utterly adorable lil’ critters at home. How fun is that?!
The Band of Beasties
Wondering who your new pets will be? Say hello to Levi the Lion, Eli the Elephant, Paula the Polar Bear, Coco the Crocodile, Malvin the Monkey and Gina the Giraffe
