Meet the second installment in my you-asked-for-it-you-got-it series of patterns! Bob the Blue-Footed Booby. Huzzah!
I know, right? Yes, just like Jerry the Monkey, you guys in the Danger Crafts Group on Ravelry asked for a Blue-Footed Booby named Bob, so here he is! And seriously, I had the BEST time knitting this. I kept telling Mr Danger, "Oh! Gotta go work on my Booby honey!" It does not get old. If anything, it gets funnier every time you say it. Hrmmm, could this be why you guys asked for a Booby?
But less on the Booby talk....I hope you guys love him like I do! I came up with this cool concept to hold 2 strands of yarn together throughout so that you could be sure to get that awesome mottled coloring that Booby's have on their head. I am really, truly pleased with how it came out, too.
AND, this pattern has the awesome new feature of being able to be knit in one piece! I hear all of you who hate sewing the limbs on, so on this pattern I wrote it so you can either knit everything separately, or you can pick up the beak, wings, and legs. Cool, huh? I think you will love it. But, because it is a bit tricky, I am going to do a KAL on here starting on Monday (8/27) to give you a little more in-depth look at how to do some of the techniques in this pattern.
There you go! Bob is on sale for $4 for the first month and is available on my website, etsy shop, or Ravelry. I also have a yarn bundle on my website and in my etsy shop if you want to make the amazingly huge, squishy, loveable, cuddleable, huggable, perfect giant Booby in Lorna's Laces shown in the pattern.
Go forth and create, Booby Knitters!
