2014/85 – Fraggle amigurumi pattern by competition winner, epicyarns!

So a few weeks ago we posted a competition to get your blog shared, here on UK Crochet Patterns. I really liked doing this and seeing what you guys have been making so will probably do this again sometime.

Anyway, the first one I want to share is an amigurumi pattern shared by epicyarns, who were first to respond to our original competition post. Look at this Fraggle pattern! Aren’t they gorgeous?!

Fans of Fraggle Rock are really going to enjoy this. Take a look!

Prize winner’s product review + star pattern

Our friend, A Creative Pixie, has kindly reviewed the Red Heart Miami yarn she won in a recent giveaway. Just look at what she made! LOVELOVELOVE!

Click here to visit her blog and to read the review!

She has even been generous enough to post the pattern she used too.

It’s worth noting that we didn’t actually want to send the yarn to her because it’s so yummy 😛 That rich colour … it makes us happy just looking at it!

Thank you, A Creative Pixie!
