The pattern in question is Candy Corn Rat from Adventure Time by Pops de Milk, which you can get for free! I love Pops de Milk, it's one of my favourite blogs, and I have the supplies to make a few more of her patterns, but I decided on Candy Corn Rat as he fits the season. We don't really get candy corn over here in Scotland, but I watch enough American TV to know it's Halloween related.
Look how cute he is! I love his little fat butt! He worked up super fast, in a couple of hours in the evening while the other half was playing GTA V. His legs and ears were a bit fiddly as they are so small, but luckily they were only a couple of rounds each so it wasn't too bad!
I love that I just have the confidence to read a pattern and by like "Yeah, I can totally make that!" now. Crochet used to give me the total fear, but I feel so much happier with it now, and it's great I can make wee cuties like this guy in one sitting.
He can chill with our Halloween decorations for a couple of days, and then probably take up residency in my craft room or on our books shelves with most of my other homemade creations.
