Hey everyone, it's Brenna with Little Raven Fiber Arts, back for the first amigurumi CAL of 2018! The beginning of the year is a time for reflection and resolutions, a time to set goals and make plans. I wanted to design something in the spirit of motivation and meeting goals, so here we are... trophies!
The trophies are actual cups that allow you to keep things inside: write down your goals and resolutions on slips of colorful paper to fill the cup, or fill it with candies and treats to award yourself, friends and family! They would make an adorable wedding or party favor!
This week we'll be covering the supplies you'll need to make these trophies, and next week (January 13, 2018) we'll get right into it with the full pattern!
Worsted weight #4 yarn in gold, silver or bronze
Size G (4.0mm) Odyssey crochet hook (if your stitches tend to be looser, try downsizing one or two hook sizes in order to get the denser stitching that will allow the trophy to hold a firm shape)
Small amount of stuffing (for the base)
Stitch marker (I use a small scrap of yarn)
See you back here next Saturday (January 13) for the pattern!
In the interim, make sure to pop in to the Fun With Furls Facebook Group and the Ravelry Project page to share your photos and admire everyone else’s crochet handiwork too!
