Loyal, the ringmaster
Pdf pattern / in English (US terms) / by Ahooka'migurumi
Loyal is the son of a magician and an acrobat. He was born in a circus so it was quite natural that he imagined following in his parents footsteps. Unfortunately, as he was growing up, he had to face the facts: he had absolutely no talent for magic, and as he was rather stout, he would certainly not be entitled to take up acrobatics… Loyal was all ready to sign on the dole.
But one day, while he was drowning his sorrows in a mountain of chocolate - banana pancakes, his mother rushed to tell him that the circus ringmaster was ill that night. No one in the circus had the same build as him to fit in his clothes. No one apart from Loyal of course !
And that’s the way he made his first move in the highly-coveted limelight. The first but certainly not the last...
The pattern is simple and clearly explained, with dozens of pictures and even videos to make its crocheting nice and smooth.
Perfect as a more challenging pattern as it is very detailed, but still very accessible as every step is fully explained.
