Isn’t he a cutie? He can be a narwhal or a whale (you choose!). Using a heavy worsted weight yarn he measures 17 inches long (horn included), so he is nice and big and cuddly.
Don’t know a lot about narwhals? They are sometimes referred to as ‘the unicorns of the sea’ because males (and some females) have a distinct ‘horn’ on their head. This ‘horn’, or tusk, is in fact a large tooth that grows out through their upper lip. Narwhals live in the Arctic waters near Canada, Russia, Greenland, and Norway.
I have to say, designing this guy was a bit of a challenge. I decided early on that he needed to have a white belly, but this turned out to be tricky business. When working in the round without joining (ie. in a continuous spiral), your stitches shift slightly to the right with each round you crochet; because Walden’s belly is so long, I needed to make sure it did not look like it was going off to his side. It took a few trials (you should see the pile of whales I have in my living room) but I think it worked out well!
