In this post, I will be showing you step-by-step how to assemble your Louis Alligator. Above is a picture showing the two that I have already made. Small Louis is made using mercerised 4ply cotton yarn with a 2mm hook. The bigger one is made with DK acrylic yarn and a 3mm hook. Some of the parts can be awkward to attach but just take your time. for those of you that find it hard, I will try and make a video showing the method that I used to attach my amigurumi parts.
NOTE: In some of the pictures, it shows that I haven’t added the parts in the order that I have listed. This is because after making my first Louis, I realised that certain parts should be added first to make it easier. However, I forgot to take certain pictures to depict this when I made my second Louis.
I won’t ramble but instead, jump straight into the tutorial.
Your Louis is now complete and should look something like the one pictured below (without the one missing toenail, haha!). If you make this Louis I would love to see how he turned out. I also hope that you enjoy making him as much as I did 🙂
Until the next post, happy crocheting!
