FO Friday: FreshStitches Amber Mystery CAL

Though I finished my Mystery CAL project late, I could have shared this for  FO Friday a few weeks ago. Apparently, I was so over-the-moon about finally finishing my Destash Dolman and Sincere Sheep sweaters, I forgot to include my adorable new marsupial friend! Oops!

My kangaroo ended up being rather large because I am a really loose crocheter and (for reasons still unknown to me) I didn't go down a few crochet hook sizes as I usually do for amigurumi projects. So, it's a little loosey-goosey and there are definitely places where you can see the stuffing if you're looking for it.

I used 4 skeins of Lopi yarn I snapped up via Craftsy Deals for a song; it was a little scratchy at first but I gave the Roos a bath and now they are much more snuggly!

Pattern: Amber the Kangaroo by Stacey Trock
Yarn: Lett-Lopi Icelandic Yarn

Have a crafty weekend!


  1. She is just so sweet. I said he first but then realised that there was a pouch with a mini one as well. Turned out really well, I think her being big works.

  2. What cute kangaroos! I love fun to crochet!

  3. Lovely! Love the mini one too, super cute!
