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…
My boyfriend’s two year old niece is obsessed with Futurama and insists on cuddling a hard plastic Bender figurine at bedtime, so I thought a cuddly version that’s not going to leave an imprint on her face every morning would make for a good Christmas present.
The original pattern is from Stitch but I’ve amended it a little. I hope the little ‘un likes it. If not, she can bite my shiny metal… 😉
One day I was plodding solemnly behind my boyfriend in Forbidden Planet when I decided I needed a new hobby. I lifted my weary head and a book came into view whose cover was adorned with the cutest little chappy. A woolen robot? Surely not. I bought it and have been hooked ever since. Hooked. Heh.
