Things are getting Oddish

Hey hey, crochet lovers. When I picked up my last bundle of yarn I had my eye firmly on an Oddish and its denim blue and vibrant green combo. With a spherical body and fairly simple features Oddish was a quick one to put together with one small fly in the ointment…

I didn’t like the flat-hooked leaves in the original pattern so I thought I’d go off-piste and make up my own from an adapted ear pattern. I can’t say I’m entirely happy with the results. I made the mistake of lightly stuffing the leaves, making them look like a green rubber glove stitched to his cute little head. I might come back to him and try the leaves again as right now, he’s not one of my favourites.
