Our NEW super cute 25g mini-balls of coloured yarn have been sitting on the corner of my desk for a few weeks now, and have proved pretty inspiring.
For the first time TOFT will be introducing bright coloured yarn into its range to accommodate the bright orange, yellow, blue and greens needed in my latest bird collection (book now on pre-order). At the moment we have yellow, orange and pink available to purchase and the blue and two greens will arrive on a couple of weeks.
It was only ever going to be a matter of time before I had some fun with these brights and the classic Edward's Menagerie standard form. So here we have it: simple pattern modifications to give your #edsanimals a T-shirt or shorts.
I selected Austin the Rhino and used my favourite colour to give him a fetching pair of swim shorts.
Starting in your shorts colour work the standard body up to the start of Rnd 14 where you colour change to your animal's colour.
Work your bottom legs as normal in your animal's colour and change to your shorts colour at the start of Rnd 14.
Here's Piotr the Polarbear and our NEW orange. Start your standard body as normal in your selected animal's colour and colour change to your t-shirt colour at the start of Rnd 16.
Work your two top legs as normal until colour changing to your t-shirt colour at Rnd 14.
You'd just need one 25g ball of our NEW yarn to add your shorts or t-shirt to your animal (and still have plenty left for a beak or two!).
Looking forward to seeing your pictures- I have already had an elephant with a pink T-shirt request from Edward so I had better get back to my crochet!
