Bugging out with Venonat

Hey hey crochet lovers. Sometimes the right yarn demands a Pokemon be made. Hunting through the amazing range at my local yarn store – Abakhan in Manchester – I happened upon this amazing purple eyelash yarn from King Cole. It’s colour and delicately fluffy texture are a perfect starting point for a Venonat.

Did someone order a ball of fluff?

The King Cole Moments yarn was easier to work with then I expected, and it gets quite warm in the hand when you’re working with it.

How can a bug be so cute?

It’s funny how his simple  features manage to convey so much cheeky character. In fact, I was so charmed by him I mad him a little shiny friend…

I loved the yarn so much I made a smaller shiny Venonat
