Next Pica Pau animal is done! Meet Anderson Seal! I love that it’s his official name from the book, because we really do have seals here around Anderson Island in WA.
I had a lot of challenges with this little guy. I had to start over several times on both the collar part and the hat. The wavy pattern was new to me and took quite a while to get my head around it, but worked out fine once I finally figured it out. For the hat, I think my yarn was actually a smaller weight (oops!), and I had to increase and add more rows to make it fit. Then the ribbing around the edge was very difficult. I’m sure it didn’t, but it felt like the hat took as long to make as the seal!
I continue to really enjoy making these, especially since they’re something I can do with my hands while chatting/D&Ding online with friends or watching shows.
