Meet Dale the Mosquito
Normally, mosquitoes are pretty annoying… but not Dale! He’s too oversized to do too much buzzing around! Dale measures 3 inches tall and 6 inches long when completed.
This mosquito is a great first-time pattern… I often use him to teach folks new to amigurumi! The pattern uses only single crochet, and he only takes a couple of hours to complete.
Ella Rae Classic is the yarn used in the sample: Grey (40 yds) and white (20 yds). This pattern can be used with any weight yarn, but plan on using more yardage for bulkier yarns.
