Twinkle the Strawberry Jerboa lives in a hot cosmic desert where a special kind of strawberry flourishes. These mysterious fruit have a hidden secret though because concealed inside each one is a perfectly camouflaged little creature. When it’s safe, the strawberries pop open, exploding explode in a puff of fur and on closer inspection, you’ll find these fur balls are in fact little jumping jerboas!
ABOUT THE PATTERN
Twinkle has been designed in collaboration with Scheepjes yarn as an entry-level pattern to introduce you to crocheting with fur yarn in an easy project. This pattern is the second addition to the Smuggle-Tuck Pets collection and it’s part of Projectarian’s Year of Fur event.
She is a reversible amigurumi that flips inside out to become a strawberry. She can also be made as a standalone, stuffed plushie and the pattern describes how.
Twinkle’s design uses very simple shaping over all, so you can focus more on your crocheting technique than on trying to understand the pattern. Special shaping is used to make the bend in Twinkle’s neck; however, before you make this bend with fur yarn, you’ll learn the shaping technique by first making the back legs with the same bend using plain yarn. You’ll be shown how to use markers to guide you through this shaping method, so that you won’t get stuck while working the neck bend in fur.
