Tweede CAL met Dawn Toussaint

Dit is een artikel dat werd gekopieerd uit mijn oude blog. Toen schreef ik nog uitsluitend in het Engels

Life’s been crazy busy these last couple of weeks. I’ve been so busy that I hardly crocheted *gasp*, hence the lack of posting here.

But I finally made some time to finish the critter Dawn Toussaint created for her second CAL.
Padma’s CAL was so much fun to do that Dawn received a number of requests for a second CAL. Through her Ravelry group she asked for ideas, and the popular vote was a monkey.

This is Dawn’s teaser sketch for Manuel, the monkey. Can you see the resemblance with Padma’s initial sketch?

Unfortunatly, I lacked the time to actually follow this CAL like I did for Padma, so I already knew what the crocheted version of Manuel was going to look like when I started my Manuel. But knowing the look of the end-result didn’t ruin the fun 😉 . Besides, each ami looks different, even if they are made with the same pattern 😀 .
So without further ado, meet my Manuel:

If you want to make your own Manuel, the pattern – in 4 instalments – can be found by following these links:
