Ambrose the Badger is leaving his woodland home and is looking for someone to share his adventures. With his pointed snout and black and white ears, he measures approximately 6” (15cm) when sitting, and is just waiting to be your friend. Suitable for an intermediate crocheter, the pattern is made in a spiral of continuous rounds, and uses a variety of stitches and techniques which are clearly explained in the numerous diagrams and photos. Ambrose can be created using any DK yarn, but why not try our own awarding winning Deramores Studio DK, a beautifully soft acrylic yarn with anti-pilling technology. We think Ambrose would look fabulous crocheted in Frost, Ebony and Smoke. Please be aware that Studio DK is a 100g ball, so you will have yarn left over – so you could always crochet a friend for Ambrose! To complete your badger you will need: 1 x 50g ball of White DK 1 x 50g ball of Black DK 1 x 50g ball of Grey DK 3.5mm (USE/4) crochet hook 3.25mm (US D/3) crochet hook for the crocheted eyes option Small amount of yarn for crocheted eyes option 2 x 20mm safety eyes - though please note that Kate handpainted the safety eyes in the illustration for extra appeal - they are usually either a plain black or 'googly' Stuffing Yarn needle Stitch markers Please note: Ambrose is crocheted using UK terminology.
