#278 Wingull


The most recent addition to the crochet pokedex is wingull! It's a gift for a friend of mine and I'm very glad that it's turned out the way it has.

Beak to tail measurement is 30cm (12 inches) with a wingspan of 60cm (23 1/2 inches).

This pattern uses DK yarn and a G - 4.00mm hook. But since it's a plush you can really use any size.
Yarn is in grey, yellow, red, black, white and light blue.
