Shy Guy Crochet Pattern

Happy First of the Month!

Its time for the third and final pattern release for the month – Shy Guy! There are some improvements that I really want to make to this pattern. Mainly, I am not happy with the size because he turned out quite small. I also want to adjust the “slouch” on top of his head so that it is a bit more slouchy. Once I make these changes I will be much happier. However, until then this little guy did turn out quite cute – what do you think?

I hope to make a second one and with this lockdown going on I may have time to do it before this pattern is released. But in the event that I am unable to, I will update the post at a later date to include both the bigger and smaller versions.

The approximate measurements using DK yarn and 3mm hook are 3.25inches height, 2.75 inches width and 1.75 inches length/depth.
