So, I have a question to this community, especially testers.
This has been my weekend project, and I always write what I’m doing (essentially creating a drafted pattern). I thought “bear”, someone on Youtube mentioned fruit (in an entirely different context) and the idea I thought of was just too funny not to go with. So, I created a bear, shaped as a pear, with a pattern to go with it. Today I finished him, and here we have him.
Now, the question I came to ask is whether or not you think it’s going to be worth the effort of making him into a pattern others can use.
Is this something you would look at and want to crochet? My boyfriend thinks he’s too fat and unproportional (well, he’s not completely wrong about the proportions), and I’m not sure if I think he’s half-cute or just funny (to me).
If you wouldn’t want to: If I made him smaller/more proportional, would that change your opinion?
He’s no-sew, but takes a few hours to make.
Please be as harsh as you want with your feedback!
(And please ignore the loose stitches–I was working with a new yarn that slimmed down with tight stitches, and since I usually just frog most of the things I make, I just kept going)
I would say yes, absolutely make the pattern. There are many people in the crochet community who love combining food and animals to make unusual amigurumi. In fact, you can even stretch it further by making Percy pear-colored
Yesss thats what i was about to say!!!
I agree with @knittedfish
It seems these days food animals are all the rage! So I say go ahead & do you! Make it a pattern its super cute. And you could always make him a pear color. That would be nice so it goes with the name or if you wanna keep him bear colored, maybe a little pear hat? Or another option sew a pear applique onto the front of him
Haha, with the mind-set I’m in right now, it wouldn’t be unlikely that I make all of the above!
It doesn’t need to be untested before you publish it. Ribblr’s pattern builder has an option to let others pattern test before you publish. It also gives you the option to request that someone else makes him green!
Thank you I’ve actually done a pattern tester call earlier which ended today! (for a much smaller elephant than this guy)
What I’m wondering about is whether someone would actually sign up to test it or not
Before I potentially send out a tester call I’d probably need to work out some kinks in the pattern since this was completely free-handed, so I’ll make one in green too, I hope!
Thank you for the kind suggestion though!
yes, you should totally make it a pattern! maybe you could make him a pear colour and add a little pear stem on the top!
Well, I believe the “ayes” have it! Thank you all for your suggestions and comments
I’ll hopefully make a tester call for him in about 1-2 weeks!
I would test him he is to cute not to.
@NativeHooker828 I’m working on him now I’ll likely make a tester call in 1-2 days!
If anyone feels tempted to crochet him, he has a tester call up now!
