Heffalumps & Woozles Crochet Border Pattern

Heffalumps & Woozles Pattern Image

It’s finally here! Heffalumps & Woozles was tested last week and now it’s been proofed and edited. This is a cute little border that I first saw on YouTube: Puntilla de Elefantes. However the major problem was the stitch multiple: 18; I needed 10.

I set to research and development and finally tweeked the stitch multiple to 10 for my purposes. I then fine-turned the ears for a more accurate 3D orientation, and lastly, I linked the tails to the trunks.

The heffalumps are a 3-row repeat based on basic crochet stitches, so I have marked the pattern Beginner. However, the construction may be a little tricky, so I also marked the skill level Intermediate.

You know, I am always available for technical support. The price is USD $2.00. You may purchase the pattern from AHW Patterns Page or AHW Ravelry Store as soon as I upload the pattern.

Heffalumps & Woozles: Testing

Heffalumps & Woozles

OMG! I can’t believe how wonderful The Testing Pool. The Testing Pool is a Ravelry group I joined. It is for pattern writers to get their patterns tested, edited by volunteers. The people I have worked with, so far, have been so helpful.

I had two testers for Hefflumps & Woozles: wilmaelee & kbowman123. I only have permission to use one image right now, which is the featured image of this post.

I will be performing all edits on the pattern over the weekend and it should be available on Monday.

About the Project Name

Heffalumps and Woozles is a song from Winnie the Pooh and The Blustery Day. It has never left my mind and I am glad to have a project that I can name after a Disney song.

About the Project

Puntilla de elephantes  by Lace Star (Elephant Lace) is the crochet border I had in mind for this blanket from the moment I felt The Circus theme. I had to adjust this border from its 18-stitch multiple to a 10 stitch multiple for my blanket. Having managed that, I still need to compensate for the corners of the blanket.

The first idea that came to mind is a circus tent shape for the corners. I still may be able to fashion something similar, as I visualize my solutions in my mind, but only time will tell and what happens when I get to the corner.

‘Cause we all know a hooker works hardest on the corner!
