Lakitu Crochet Tutorial

Happy Monday!

The Lakitu pattern is finally here and he is the 23rd Super Mario pattern so far. I barely have space for these amigurumi let alone the twins when they arrive. This got me thinking. So I decided that because I will also be turning my Super Mario patterns into video tutorials, I will remake all of them using 4ply yarn and a 2mm hook. This way they take up less space and I can give away the DK versions. This probably won’t free up masses of space but any space is a bonus at this point.

 

More about the pattern. I had a lot of fun with Lakitu’s cloud which turned out better than I expected – I love when an idea works out! However, it did get a little bit tedious having to do 12 of those cloud pieces. I don’t do well with repetitive crocheting, which is why I make amigurumi and not blankets!  That being said once the cloud is done the rest is plain sailing and I feel very straight forward.

The approximate measurements using DK yarn and 3mm hook are 6.25 inches height, 3.25 inches width and 3.5 inches length/depth.
