“You want me to make a what?” was my reply to my daughter at her suggestion to create a Lorax.  She had just seen the movie and thought I should make one.  I haven’t seen the movie so I needed to do some research and to do some thinking.  This is the first time I have created a knitted amigurumi pattern.  I tried to apply to knitting some of the same techniques I used in crocheting amigurumi patterns.  It turned out cute.   So this is my pattern for making a Lorax.

Step 1:

Supplies:
Scrap of 4 play worsted white
Caron Simply Soft color Mango (+/- $4)
Yarn Bee Haute Fur color Goldlash (+/- $7)
4 size 5 double pointed knitting needles
4 needle covers
Stitch holder (I used a large safety pin, not shown)
Scissors
Yarn needle
Row counters
Polyester stuffing (not in the picture)
2 15mm safety eyes (green, not in the picture, they were already on the Lorax, and they were the only ones I had)
Size G crochet hook
I just love his eyebrows and mustache! Wonderful!
Thank you! They were the hardest parts of the whole project.
I love it! You must have seen the movie recently too! I was thinking of doing one myself after watching the show but decided it would be too daunting of a task! Well done!
I made one without seeing the movie, how crazy it that. Thank you for looking.
Oh, this is just too neat. I love how you did the eyes and the hair. :D
Thank you!
