Happy October!

This months Midi tier pattern is Bashful from Snow White. Bashful is the fifth dwarf that I have made so I only have two more to go – Doc and Sneezy.

Although all the patterns were based off the first pattern which was grumpy, there are enough changes to each character that I am still having fun crocheting them even though I have made so many already.

For Bashful I started with the base pattern for Sleepy but made some alterations to the hands, jacket, head and hat. Firstly, I made the hands so that I did not have to glue or start them. To achieve this look, I had to fasten off the had and reconnect the yarn to crochet the fingers separately. This does create two extra ends that need weaving in, but I think that it is worth the extra effort.  

Bashful is the first fully wired dwarf that I made, all the others were only wired to give support to the head. I decided to wire him because I felt that into be able to fully portray Bashful, I needed to get his classic pose. This meant that he would need to be manoeuvrable in both the arms and legs.

There was minimal contouring of the face required, I just contoured the nose crevice to better define the cheeks.

Bashful stands at 18cm/7 inches tall (to the tip of the hat) and 15cm/6 inches wide (with the arms extended).
