I set off to look for a cute dolphin pattern on Etsy. I was assuming that I was going to have to alter a pattern to make the stuffed toy the size I wanted, but I was so excited to find the Daphne the Dolphin pattern by Theresa’s Crochet Shop! The pictures of the dolphin were adorable and looked like it would make the perfect size stuffed toy. I am so glad I found this pattern. It turned out exactly how I wanted and made a wonderful gift.

This is a very simple pattern, in terms of stitching. Once you get the hang of the mesh stitch, it’s smooth and just flies off the hook! The genius of this pattern is in the actual layout. She does a really cool technique in shaping the shoulders, rather than simply decreasing for the neckline and leaving the sides boxy (which is also a look that I love and do in many of my own designs).

Teri Eggenberger from Good Egg Knits published an Ice Cream Cozy pattern that is not only super fast and easy to make, but it uses both acrylic and cotton yarn to make the absolute perfect ice cream cozy. When I tested the finished product out, not only did it fit perfectly, but the acrylic was soft on my hands while the cotton absorbed all the frost from the container without soaking through.
