Mystery Crochet Along with Mikey Who’s in Your Closet: Week 3

For the past 2 weeks, we have been doing a mystery crochet along. Today, the mystery gets solved and you get to finish off your creature. This week we are doing the main body to wrapping our character up! In cooperation with Mikey of The Crochet Crowd, we have Red Heart Yarns and Fresh Stitches participating.
Week 1

This project has been graciously designed by Stacey Trock, Amigurumi Designer and Author. This is a character that you will fall in love with and kids will be lined up for you to make them one! It’s irresistibly cute!

You now have two weeks, until July 29th, 2014 to submit a photograph of your finished character to The Crochet Crowd. Go to the submission form at Who’s In Your Closet Mystery to get details.
