Did you see the Narwhal Ornament Crochet Pattern last month? Well, I updated the design using a double strand of Premier Chameleon Yarn. Following the same directions but with a double strand of Chameleon Yarn, you can crochet a Narwhal plush toy measuring approximately 7″ long.

Day 6 of the Preemie Crochet Challenge 2021
Helen Wilkinson from Sunflower Cottage Crochet is hosting her Preemie Crochet Challenge again this year. Each day a new baby crochet pattern by an indie designer will be featured. For each pattern you download, we are asking for one item to be donated to a charity for preemies or hospital of your choice.
Last year was absolutely fantastic, and the support and pledges from other designers and crocheters within the crochet community was fabulous. We are hoping that 2021 will be no different! Our goal is to surpass the pledge count from last year (which was over 22,000 pledges!) and are aiming for over 30,000 this year!
You can read about why this challenge means so much to us at Sunflower Cottage Crochet HQ here
HOW DOES THE CHALLENGE WORK?
- Each day at 8am London time, the blog post will be updated with that day’s featured pattern.
- I will give you the code and links you need. If the designer has a blog, you will be directed there for more information about the pattern; if not you will be taken directly to Ravelry.
- You will decide if you would like that pattern.
- By accepting the free PDF download, you are pledging to donate at least one made item from that pattern to a Preemie charity/organization/NICU/family of your choosing.
- The patterns below will be categorized as the event progresses to make it easier for you to establish which patterns are still available, which are available free on the designers blog, and which are now only paid patterns. The first pattern will be the featured pattern for that day.
We have kept a round up of last year’s patterns that were donated to the challenge for your reference. Many of the patterns are still available free on the designers blog and a couple will always be free on Ravelry! You can check out that post here.

Today’s featured pattern – Dr. Inky the Octopus by Creative Snuggles
This bunny beanie is so cute!! To make it you will need a 4mm hook and approximately 50 yard of main color and 20 yards of contrasting color in #3 weight yarn (DK). The finished hat will be approximately 10″ by 6″. I just adore the use of the V stitch in this one.
