The gray yarn is a few historic wool combine that’s been hanging round unloved for ages, and the cream stomach/fins are constructed from a little bit of West Yorkshire Spinners Color Lab left over from a mosaic crochet class. The eyes are previous buttons, the stuffing is recycled wool waste and the embroidery was accomplished with a scrap of black left over from goodness is aware of what. The sample is Shane the Shark from Little Inexperienced Bear, labored in DK slightly than aran.

After all a shark does want some sea to offer a house, so I’m presently engaged on the bollard cowl, utilizing scrap yarn – primarily acrylic, however the high is identical WYS wool as Shane’s stomach and fins. It’s an adaptation of Attic 24’s Neat Ripple sample which I’ve utilized in numerous tasks earlier than.

After all we additionally proceed to make crochet corals with all kinds of scrap yarn… all shall be revealed in a number of weeks time.
