I'm on a plane (finally!)

Finally got around to finishing the plane pattern in English. Thank you all for your patience.
So without further ado, here we go:
  • Some scraps of yarn (I used Bravo -acrylic)
  • Crochet hook, small enough so you get a firm fabric (I used a 3.5 mm hook)
  • Stuffing
  • Needle to sew on wings

Add the stuffing as you go along.

  1. What does the plane measure when it is finished?

  2. Thank you thank you thank you for writing your lovely plane pattern in English. Google translate doesn't do a good enough job. Very sweet plane. Thanks for sharing with us.

  3. muy mala la traduccion, no se entiende el patron.

  4. Hi. This airplane is so cute! I'm new to crochet but wanted to try this one out. But after I made the " window " it says " pick up the MC on 21 st , 12 sc " and i can't really understand what to do. Hope you can help out a newbie like me!:)

    1. Thank you! I will try to make it clear.
      You start that round with 12 st in the main colour, then you change to white (for the window), wich you work back and forth over eight stitches. So on the 21st sitch of the round you have to change back to the MC and continue working in rounds. It's been a while since I wrote this. I can see it could use some tweaking.

    2. Thank you for answering!:) I just finished my third body(I actually dropped the hole 21st thing and just picked up the MC from before the window and crochet around it:p), hopefully the baby boy who are going to look at them from his bed is going to be satisfied :p

  5. hola las abreviaturas que significan?? no se entiende... que pena!!, saludos!
