The latest issue of Crochet Now magazine is focusing on the importance of being mindful and there’s nothing more mindful that a bit of quality ‘me’ time crocheting! So if you are looking for a new project to get lost in the stitches, then how about Milo the Mindful Moose!
Milo the Moose enjoys getting out his yoga mat and unwinding after a busy day! Are you interested in yoga or mediation? I used to enjoy going to yoga classes before I had children and have recently been considering trying to find a local class again that I could go to.
But of course I also use the rhythmic motions of crochet as a conscious way to slow down a bit, be present in the moment with my stitches and relieve stress – and that’s what Milo is all about!
Enjoy taking the time to hook up Milo and his tasselled yoga mat, he makes a quick and easy project and would be the perfect gift for any yoga loving family and friends.
For my Milo I used some of my favourite Ricorumi DK with a 3mm hook. If you are not not familiar with the yarn it is 100% Cotton which comes in 25g [57.5 meters] balls. I went for calming teal and brown tones, just 1 ball of Wood (073), Cream (002), Aqua (074), Slate (080) and Teal (040). I love Ricorumi DK for amigurumi as it comes in the cute little balls in loads of different colours so I can usually find the shades that I’m looking for.
If you make up Milo the Moose I hope you’ll share any finished photos with me on social media (facebook, twitter or instagram) or as a project on Ravelry – I love to see what you make! And finally you may wish to make sure you are signed up to blog (below) and / or my mailing list to get a reminder when new blog posts, discounts or new pattern releases are available.
Until next time folks! Happy hooking and keep calm and crochet on my friends xx
