AB­BRE­VI­A­TIONS

For a full list, see page 92 Sloths are ev­ery­where right now. They’re the In­sta­gram mo­tif of the mo­ment, so you’ll be bang on trend. They may just hang around and cause trou­ble very slowly, but they’re su­per quick to hook!

NOTES

The Sloth Brooch is made by work­ing in the amigu­rumi method un­less oth­er­wise di­rected. Work in a con­tin­u­ous spi­ral, with­out clos­ing off each round with a slip stitch. You may find it help­ful to place a stitch marker in the first stitch of each round, moving it up as you work.
