After making the Jean Greenhowe Santa, I found this leprechaun on Ravelry. I made him using leftover yarns from other projects. I changed the pattern a bit. I did crochet beard, made the arms and legs and body longer, used beaded eyes and did a French knot for the nose. He's got filler beads in his arse to give him some weight and sit easier. I attached the hat last because I used the top of his noggin to secure threads for his eyes, mouth and nose. I also hid some secured under the back of his collar. I also had to modify the buckle on his belt. I just could not get a decent buckle following the knitted instructions so I embroidered it on. Here's the link to the pattern: http://home.alphalink.com.au/~woodsy/freerufuspat.htm.
Blogger is still botched up and kicking me off......so I'm typing what I need somewhere else and just copy pasting it here. So far that's working out. Jeesh :)
