Happy April!

This month’s midi tier pattern is Meeko the raccoon from Pocahontas.

Even though there was not a lot of opportunity for mixed media, I really enjoyed this project and how it turned out. I managed to squeeze in some needle felting for his nose and a black accent pen for the eyes, but other than that, it is just your typical yarn and felt.

I tried using chained length of yarn to line the mouth so that I could create an opened mouth look. I think that it works quite well and gives some added dimension to the mouth so that it is not just flat and one dimentional.

Also, I couldn’t find my grey yarn (and I am still on a new yarn ban) so I substituted it for a pale grey/beige colour. Fortunately, it still works, and I think that Meeko is still instantly recognisable. (Though the hubby thought it was the raccoon from over the hedge…what do you think?)

Overall, the pattern is quite simple, with the most complicated parts being the hands and feet. However, if you have crocheted any of my projects before I just used my usual chain technique to create fingers and crocheting up the sides to create the feet. If you are familiar with these techniques the pattern should be straight forward.

Meeko’s approximate measurements are 5.25 inches / 13 cm tall and 2.75 inches / 7 cm wide.

  • 4ply cotton yarn in medium grey, white and black. I suggest Scheepjes Catona in 110 Jet Black, 105 Bridal White and 074 Mercury (I used 248 champagne because I did not have the Mercury colour on hand).
  • 2mm crochet hook
  • Yarn needle
  • Fire retardant Fibrefill
  • Felt glue
  • Scissors
  • Black, dark red, baby pink and white felt
  • Needle felting needle and black wool roving (OPTIONAL – You can glue it on with black felt, or embroider it on, in which case you can use black yarn)
  • Black enamel accent pen – I used a Viva decor Perlen Pen (OPTIONAL – you can just use black felt and cut a small circle or a sharpie which also works well)
  • Pins
  • Stitch marker
