Hi, this adorable zebra is a pattern from animal friends of Picapau 2 by Yan Schenkel which the book will be released in July this year! But you can purchase the downloadable PDF pattern here.
Yarn: Fiddlestick Wren+Scheepjes Catona
It’s the first time for me to work with Fiddlestick Wren cotton yarn and I love it. It’s soft and your work turns out a matt looking. I got it from my favor yarn shop unwind craft cafe , at only $6.5 per 50gm ball in many pretty colours.
FINISHED SIZE: This Henritte zebra measures approx. 27cm( 10.5″) tall and 13cm( 5″) wide.
Okay, here are some tips I wanna to share, hope it helps while you working on the same project.
How do I place the eyes to the right place? First I find the central of the head and place a pin, then follow the pattern instruction, adjust the pin forward or backward, make sure it’s on the right row. Then follow the pattern instruction to find the right place for both eyes.
Do I need to cut the yarn every time when I change it? No, you don’t have to cut the yarn until the whole piece is finished. So this is what I do for this project, Every time when I changed to another colour yarn, I leave the strands for change over later, but must be loose enough so your work does not pucker up. When you working on divide the legs, you will find your work can be continued if you keep the strands inside the hole of the first leg you divided, and don’t need to cut until the leg finished. (YEAH!) Have you tried this way yet?
I didn’t make her clothing like the pattern instructed, but a rose scarf instead with scheepjes catona. I will recommend you to prepare a 10g ball for cloth and a 25g ball for pants if you are going to make her clothing.
