Barbakus - The Nature and Animal Lover ★free pattern★







Yarn: Müller Super Preis,  1x 50g yellow
                                           a bit of white for the kitten
Hook Size: Nr. 3

Abbrevations (US Terms)
V: increase (The letter V looks like the crochet symbol for increasing!)
A: decrease (The letter A nearly looks like the crochet symbol for decreasing!)
x6: repeat 6 times
ch: chain
ss: slip stitch
sc: single crochet
dc: double crochet
FLO: front loop only
BLO: back loop only

Notes
"  Crochet in continuous spiral rounds.
"  Use the invisible decrease (only the front loops of both stitches).
"  I always split my increases and decreases.
If there is an even number of stitches between the increases or decreases, for example (14, V) x6, - work 7, V, (14, V) x5, 7 instead.
Rows with an odd number of stitches between increases or decreases are worked as usual, for example (5, V) x6.
"  Stuff as you go.
"  You can use any yarn but use a smaller hook than suggested to avoid holes after filling.

  1. I am loving your crochet Babapapas family SO much, I think I said before I had one of their books as a kid and I loved it, especially all the detail in the pictures.
