Crochet Pyramid Buddy
I have a stack of projects to post, which can only mean that it is FALL! Time for coziness in the house, making comfort food, and crafting goodies. First up, we have this little creation that my son requested. He tasked me with making crochet aliens which was an out there ask, but we designed these little creatures together and had fun doing it. The last of the set was to be a pyramid. I couldn't find a good pyramid pattern on Pinterest, but followed this good one for a triangle. I just took that to make 4 triangles, and a square base (20 rows of 20 SC- same size as the pyramid base).
After attaching the triangles to each other and putting on the eyes, this guy needed some character. I added hair which went a long way to upping his cute factor, and gave him a fun smile that went around one of his triangle edges. I adding stuffing and was sewing on the base, when my son said I should leave the tails hanging instead of weaving them in. He liked the little jellyfish legs.
Lesson at the heart of this: you can make all kinds of crochet nonsense with some basic patterns and letting yourself go with the flow. It doesn't have to look perfect. Just enjoy it. :)
