Swoop Crochet Pattern

Happy First of the Month!

One of the patterns being released this month is Swoop. For those of you who don’t know who he is, he’s the bat that flies down from the ceiling to hit you in the cave levels. Swoop isn’t your typical Super Mario character, but my son insisted that I do ALL of the characters! So this may very well turn out to be a life long project! 😀

Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures at the various stages of the assembly process but thankfully it’s pretty straight forward. When I make the second one for a video tutorial, I will remember to take pictures and then update this post.
