Abra, abra, cadabra… Well, just Abra actually

Hey hey crochet fans. For my next trick I wanted to try something a little more challenging and picked up a skein of gorgeous yellow yarn that I thought would be just the trick for an Abra. Well it certainly ended up trickier, but mainly from getting the skein completely tangled and then spending hours trying to straighten it out again!

Abra was fun to tackle and there are some nice touches to the pattern, like the shoulder pads. I’ll be honest though – I couldn’t make head nor tail of the pattern for the feet, so ended up improvising those parts. They worked out quite well, I think, so no harm done. I would have liked this pattern a little more if the head was more authentic – it’s a little too tall and bean shaped – but the overall look is excellent.
