Anne Marie and I have been 'talking' about cute crochet patterns for fall. And after some digging I found my pattern for an adorable scarecrow. I hit my bin of yarn & starting pulling lots of skeins of fall-like colors to use -- along with a G hook, poly-fil and a stuffing tool.
And oh, my! if his little britches aren't just the cutest, ever!...
Now it's off of the laptop and onto finishing this little guy.
Oh! And what makes this scarecrow pattern even cuter (if that's possible) -- she includes a pattern for crocheting the crows perched on his shoulder & the adorable pumpkins.
(btw--this pattern is from a 2007 issue of Crochet World and designed by Cindy Harris. I see that her patterns are on Ravelry, but I don't see the pattern for her scarecrow/crows & pumpkins included on her page. I also noticed that you can purchase a downloadable copy of this Aug. 2007 edition* of Crochet World here.)
*edit 10/12/12: arrrrrrrrrgh! I was just informed by someone who purchased this edition of the magazine that this pattern was NOT included in the magazine.
If you need the pattern please let me know.
