Nearly two months – guess I just take that long nowadays! I used the pattern from Crochet Fanatic, but adapted it considerably to make it an action pose – I crafted one leg and the body all in one piece, then added the second leg on the side, and did a few extra rows on one side of an arm to make it bend. I didn’t understand the instructions for incorporating the arms and toes, so just sewed them on as with the leg. I think it came out pretty well!
I used this pattern to make my Poliwhirl. On the whole I’m pleased how it came out – it’s definitely recognisable as Poliwhirl unlike, say, my Eevee! It’s got a few niggles (no, you crocheted it right-handed so the spiral had to go the wrong way), the feet are too big and the placement is still pretty shocking (must. find. pins!), but I’ll count this one as a success. Plus it’s taken a lot less time than some of them recently. Onto the next!
