Crocheted Moose Number 2 by aphid777 Crocheted Moose Number 2 by aphid777
Pattern will be coming soon!

Edit:

And here is the pattern that I finally typed out instead of studying! :D Bad me.

Anyway, it takes me a lot of time to figure out patterns (it's all trial and error fun..) and I'm usually pretty lazy with writing out patterns. SO.. let's not crush my motivation :D I would greatly appreciate the credit if this pattern is used or referenced to. Thanks! Happy crocheting :)

Also, let me know if I've made any errors!

Moose by others!

I made a moose and I'm quite sure you've a pattern problem with the head. Or I just somehow ended up wrong, I do not know anymore. I followed the decription and out came Godis: bronzewinged.deviantart.com/ar….
I've a very happy friend now.

Thank you for sharing!  I think the head is upside-down; I used the larger end as his nose.  I think a lot of people who used this pattern preferred the smaller end as the nose anyway ^^;  Sorry for the lack of instruction.  I love how yours turned out though!

It would have ended up right if the eyes should be crotcheted in the first or second instead of 3rd or fifth. 
Or if you would have a note like "this is the larger end of the head". 

I turned the head around mutiple times and nothing wanted to work until it ended up the way it did. I wanted the larger end as a nose but then the eyes were placed wrong instead. 
It was still a fun project. 

A moose should have a larger nose. 
If you want to edit the description do so because this comment will not be visible due to being to far into the stream.

Oh shoot, I think I realized what my error was.  Thanks for catching it!  I must have counted the rows from the wrong direction when locating the eyes.  I will fix it right away!  Sorry about that!

Do you crochet through both loops, the back loop or the front loop?

What does decrease 8 times around mean in the last line of the head?
Reply
:iconaphid777:
It just means to decrease 8 times in a row.
