Crochet Meercat Bride and Groom

One of our patients, an avid supporter of the Charity Yarn Bombing asked if we would make a merecat bride and groom for her grandaughters wedding.

Crochet Meercat Bride and Groom She dropped into the surgery a knitting pattern book and some yarn and left it with us. My colleague, who is a much better knitter than I, kindly took it all home to make them.

So I had a look for a crochet version and found this pattern from Planet June. it was much easier to execute that the knitted version so we made amendments to suit our patients request and came up with this Bride and Groom.

    These are very, very cute. The bride’s dress is quite something, with its little train.

      Thanks, It does work ok on this project but I tried making a cat using both knitting and crochet but I didn’t like it so adapted the pattern to crochet all the pieces. Hoping to share that one next.

    So sweet! Have you got any photos of the knitted attempt – it would be interesting to see the difference?

      I will ask my colleage if she kept the knitted one, it was her first attempt so I am sure a second try might have been more successful but the yarn was so fine I just didn’t fancy trying. Shame on me!
