Rock and Troll Monday


Yay! A Snowcatcher pattern that doesn't have to be pinned or stiffened!!!

These ponchos were designed to make little fashionistas of Troll amigurumi in my pdf 2016 snowflake pattern booklet, Sea Quell. Last week's pattern features a Troll Necklace for the Trolls (and a child-sized version for Troll lovers), and next week, I plan one additional fancy outfit for a royal Troll. I still have one more Troll clothing idea. If I can work out the pattern by the end of the month, I'll share it then, and snowflakes will return in May.

Perhaps this month's patterns are symbolic of my subconscious wishful thinking we don't get any more single-digit lows to take out my happily blooming garden this spring...


Isn't my newest Troll, Citri, adorable?!? Her lichen-covered Rock is adorned with my Windom Snowflake with a popcorn center instead of the Moss Snowflake, just to be different. (Any 1.5- to 2-inch snowflake may be used on the Rock.)


The new pdf booklet benefitting the fight against multiple sclerosis is available only via tax-deductible donation of at least $15 to my dear husband's 2016 MS-150 fund here or my 2016 MS-150 fund here. Please note that I no longer have access to personal email (or my blog) during the work day, and I volunteer teach on Tuesday nights, so may be unable to respond until evenings and may not be able to respond at all on Tuesdays.


As in years past, if you make a donation and do not hear back from me or my husband within a couple of days, please email me at snowcatcher at att dot net to make sure I know your donation has been made. I do sincerely try to get pdf booklets emailed out the same day each time a donation is made if I am able.

This new pdf booklet includes 11 snowflake patterns, 9 snowflake frames and the patterns for the Rock and Troll. (I have republished two patterns from my blog in this booklet, the Moss Snowflake and the Vitamin C Snowflake Frame.)


You may do whatever you'd like with ponchos you make from this pattern, but you may not sell or republish the pattern. Thanks, and enjoy!


Finished Size: 3.5 inches from tip to tip, folded in half 1.5 inches long and 3 inches across
Materials: Size 10 crochet thread, size 7 crochet hook, all-purpose glue

NOTE: This project includes small parts that could be swallowed by children who put things in their mouths.
