Yoshi – My Sunday Photo – 03/06/17

Hello readers. Part of what I love about my crochet is the range of different things people ask me to make for them.

This input means I never find crocheting boring as I am always creating new patterns.

A few months ago a lovely Twitter friend asked me to make her Yoshi from the Mario games. This is what I came up with.

I think he is possibly the cutest thing I have designed to date and I am now working on making Mario, Luigi and Princess Daisy to go with him.

Are you a fan of Mario and his gang? What other characters so you think I should try to make?

Thank you, Mrs A Xx

    I’ve just shown your Yoshi to my kids and now they want me to make one!! Trouble is, I’ve only just re-started crochet after many years and I really don’t have the skill, and I’ve never even tried to make my own pattern, so I am green with envy at the moment…please show us your other characters, we’ve been fans here for so long. I think I could probably manage a mushroom or maybe a b-bomb 🙂

    Hi Tracey, you are one clever lady! I love Yoshi, he’s a work of art. I reckon the mushrooms would look cute crocheted too.
