Messy Mama Makes

Messy Mama creations and patterns

Its eyes are orange, its tongue is black…

…he has purple prickles all over his back….

Inspired by Julia Donaldson’s The Gruffalo, I’ve had a lot of fun creating this gorgeous hooded cowl!

Another one that I’m still working on converting my scribbled notes into a useable pattern. It’s based on one of the Velvet Acorn’s hooded cowl patterns so if you have got that pattern already (or can make a hooded cowl with superchunky yarn) you’re halfway there already!

      Thanks! It was a lot of fun to make – reminds me I need to write up the pattern bits properly!
