Last week, you were introduced to Murdock, the latest member of the Hooked by Kati amigurumi family. This week, I would like you to meet Isla, Murdock’s sister.
Isla was created in order to make you guys a comprehensive, complete video tutorial of how to assemble your own kelpie amigurumi.
The video is broken into two parts, because — well, frankly — it’s really long.
The first part covers the head, nostrils, eyebrows, ears, neck, and attaching the head to the neck.
The second part is the tail, tail fins, neck and tail spines, and legs, as well as attachments for those parts.
All video tutorials are designed to accompany the free written pattern. The video is not to be considered a complete stand-alone pattern.
