i had this pattern idea itching on my fingertips for quite some time. but thanks to my 14-months-old primal recipient of such designs i hadn’t had the time to try it.
finally, here are two prototypes:
i’m still working on the details. so far i’m particulary fond of the macramee-knotted antennae, reminiscent of my “cute as a bug”-hat pattern. their texture turned out like a kind of wire, even though they are made of 100% yarn and therefore childsafe. will share this technique once i get time to take decent fotos.
