Here are some of your Woolly Spiders! I think they’re pretty awesome.
Please send me your photos and I will post them in the gallery.
You can get the crochet pattern for Woolly the Spider here
Make your very own Woolly the Spider style toy from the popular children’s tv show Woolly and Tig!
Official toys from the show won’t be available until later in the year, so last Christmas I was asked if I could make one for my cousin’s daughter and I happily obliged. It took quite a few weeks and a lot of unraveling, but finally I designed a pattern that I’m happy with and by all accounts a lot of children are happy with too! I posted pictures on Facebook and the requests are rolling in! I might have to make one for myself, as it really hurts to give him away, he’s so cute and huggable!
He’ll even free stand on all-eights unsupported – no wires, just stuffing.
The height is approx. 17cm head-to-toe when standing, body diameter approx. 15cm.
I’ve listed all the yarns I used in the pattern.
The pattern is illustrated with photos and is suitable for intermediate crocheters. I’ll be happy to help with any questions you might have.
You can buy a digital copy (PDF) from Etsy and I will email it to you once I receive a notification by Etsy – which is usually quite quickly as I’m never far from my iPad. Or you can buy a printed copy from eBay and I will post it to you within a couple of days. For all eBay purchases I will donate 15% of the proceeds to Sense, the deaf-blind charity.
“I just wanted to let you know that I finished Woolly and I am really pleased with the way it turned out. The pattern was great and easy to follow. I hope my niece will be as pleased with Woolly as I am.” – Katie Y
“Thank you for the pattern… I can’t wait to give him to my daughter!” – Laura S
I just finished making Woolly the spider from cbeebies Woolly & Tig for my cousin’s daughter and I DON’T WANT TO GIVE HIM AWAY!
Pattern available here soon…

I’m normally quite headstrong when it comes to advertising gimmicks but I’ve fallen for the anti-depressant Zingy in a big way, he has excellent music taste and any ad company who parodies ‘The Big Lebowski’ gets a thumbs up from me.
Scroll down to download my free (FREEEEEEE!) pattern and make your own to start hanging out with and listening to the Human League.
You only need <50g DK yarn with a 2.75mm (2.5mm or 3mm will do) hook.
You’ll also need: some white felt, a couple of small black buttons, glue, needle and black/clear thread for the eyes; some black yarn and yarn needle for the nose; and some toy stuffing.
Please send me photos of your finished Zingy, I love to see them.
By day I’m a graphic designer so I’m supposed to be into vinyl art toys. Except I’m not. Except for these. A civilization into tea drinking? Ticks my box. There are some incredible customised figures which inspired me to start crocheting a full sized Lunartik (back of shot) about a year ago (!) but am getting nowhere fast (as they’re quite angular it’s really tough when you’re working with yarn and stuffing for them not to bulge out of shape), so in my determination get one of these finished I made a Mini Tea (W)oolong variety yesterday.
