Usually when I write a Kickstart post, I try to make it something that’s not yarn related but is inspiring my creativity. For this post, though, I’m sharing a recent obsession of mine—crochet ragdoll patterns!
(OH yeah, Happy May!)
I’ve posted a couple of Ragdoll patterns from Spin a Yarn Crochet recently, and am almost finished with my first Ragdoll Unicorn (just have to embroider the face, make the horn, and assemble the whole thing, so it’ll be done in a couple of months ;)). I just saw their new Ragdoll Mermaid and that’s what inspired this post. They’ve also got an adorable spring bunny and a bunch of cute amigurumi on their Ravelry page.
If you take a look at their Ravelry page, you can kind of see the difference between the ragdoll style and the amigurumi crochet patterns. Amigurumi are awesome and I wish I had the fortitude to crochet tiny projects with precious faces at a tight gauge, but I don’t. Or I don’t right now. The crochet ragdoll patterns, however, make larger little stuffed figures that maybe are less precious, thereby less off-putting to a crazed perfectionist like myself (I have incredible admiration for people who make those really sweet and adorable crochet patterns, and I realize that they take practice to get them so perfect, but I don’t have that kind of time or patience right now).
And finally, because I’m a giant nerd, here’s a Baby Groot ragdoll pattern.
Are there any yarn-iverse trends that you’re feeling lately? What’s inspiring you?
