Wasby, the crochet raccoon pattern

What’s with all that racket? It is Wasby, my new crochet raccoon pattern. Here he finally is! I’ve called him Wasby, as raccoons are called ‘wasbeer’ in Dutch.

With a nice frontal picture, meet my crochet raccoon!

This crochet raccoon pattern was a bit of a tricky one to make. When I started, I had some good ideas of how to make this animal. I didn’t want the head to be round but it had to become wider like a real raccoon. I had in mind of how to shape it but that didn’t work out that wel, so I had to think of something different. Also, I didn’t want the raccoon to become too chubby, but just a bit, which meant I had to make a bunch of bodies before I got the right size. The last thing I had much doubt about was the colour of the hand and feet….dark or light? I made some test versions and decided to go for light, and added some extra little details with the dark yarn. The fun thing about patterns like these are, if you like dark feet better, just go for dark. I also choose rustic colours to make this raccoon, but just white and black will do too. You could even give the raccoon a more brown fur colour instead of grey.

Here are some more pictures of Wasby.

Isn’t he a ferocious little crochet raccoon? This is my favourite picture of him. Wasby is sitting 5,11 inch/ 13 cm tall.

The crochet pattern for Wasby the raccoon you can find in my shop and in my shop at Ravelry. Wasby is made with Lett Lopi, a 100% wool. I have chosen to use a light beige for the light parts of the raccoon and the darkest brown you can find for the dark parts. It gives him a more warm and rustic look. In the pattern you can find the Lopi colour numbers to make Wasby, the materials you need to make him and of course a clear description of how to crochet and attach him, with example images as an extra help.

    Hi, I purchased your pattern for this cute little guy on craftsy and I was wondering about the nose. It looks to be crocheted but the pattern calls for animal safety nose. Do you have the direction for a crochet nose?
