Hooked: Meerkats

RachelChua_1

Today I thought I’d share with you something I crocheted over a year ago but never posted about – mum and her two baby meerkats! I created these little guys in 2014 for a competition. Apart from the competition’s website – they’ve never seen ‘the light of day’.

For mum, I used the technique of interchanging yarns to create the stripes on her back and the dark patches around her eyes. For the babies, as they were so small, it was easier to create these markings by gluing pieces of felt.

My favourite part of this project was creating the baby meerkats. It’s difficult to tell from the photos, but each one had a different shade of brown/tan.

This little family now lives in storage somewhere around my home… I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing them!
