PATTERN NOTES

– Rounds in the seahorse are worked continuously with no seams.
– Mane is worked in rows and then sewn on to the back of the seahorse.
– First few rounds are worked into front loops only to make it easier on those tight rounds. Make sure to not crochet too tightly. You’ll need to fit in a pipe cleaner!
– Pipe cleaner should have both ends turned in so there’s no sharp edges. – Final length of pipe cleaner is about 2″.
– Eyes are placed approximately 1.0-1.25 inches apart.
– Amigurumi can be closed using this technique.
