Construction

I’ve very proud of this NO SEW crochet pattern!

Wait…how? How is something with this type of parts a no-sew pattern?

Easy! Each piece is attached to the body by working it straight onto the round as you go! The free pattern has all the instructions for this unique attachment method, but the Premium Pattern 2.0 has even more pictures and will be very helpful with the construction.

Upgrading your pattern to Premium 2.0 will upgrade your whole creative experience. Give yourself that gift. You deserve to really enjoy creating your art. You can get the Premium Pattern 2.0 on Ravelry or Etsy.
