I wanted to crochet something related to my dear eel plushie Katsuyuki Moray, so I did a Pinterest search for eel crochet patterns, and the first thing I found was this adorable “Chomp Chomp Scarf”:
Obviously I NEEDED to make it, but in Katsuyuki’s color! Mine’s a bit lumpy and wonky, but I still love it!
Here it is modeled by plushie Bentley the Frog:
I’m probably going to make another one out of softer yarn (and make it longer and adult-sized) so that I can wear it myself! This one will either be donated to the local food bank for their kids’ birthday boxes, or possibly given away as a prize on Katsuyuki’s blog… I haven’t decided yet!
OH MY STARS AND GARTERS this is so cute! How does the chomp stay chomped around the neck?
The teeth are connected at the edge to make it into a keyhole scarf! Friction holds it in place there once the tail is slid through the mouth slit.
And thank you! XD
That is so fun! What a great scarf.
Oh my gosh. This is the coolest. I would wear it every day.
So dang cute! And an eel no less!
Adorable! And, it’s a clever design, too. It should be easy enough to make longer, I’m betting.
Oh yeah, it’ll be easy to make longer! Just need several more rows of those dc, fpdc rows!
That colour choice and the textured stitches make it look just like an eel, well done!
