The new At the Zoo stackable ring toy has generated a lot of excitement! This fun project will be featured in Crochet World as a 3-part series in the June, August and October issues, giving you plenty of time to have it ready for someone special on your Christmas list!
The first part in the June issue includes the instructions for the center pole and the cute-as-can-be hippo!
The center pole on which all the animals are stacked has a grassy-green based dotted with colorful flowers. The ‘grass’ is made with the crochet loop stitch which is quite fun to work.
If you have never done the loop stitch before, we have added a tutorial video on Annie’s Stitch Guide which can be found here.
And don’t forget, you can double the fun by making the original stackable ring toy, Into the Jungle which was first published in Crochet World in 2013. The two sets were designed to be interchangeable – all the animals in both sets can be found in the jungle or at the zoo! The complete pattern for the Into the Jungle set is now available as a download.
