*Crochet with Color*


Crazy about Crochet: Crochet Along (CAL)

Bas * The Pilot Dog in Airplane πŸ§ΆπŸΆβœˆοΈπŸ§΅


Design: Pixel 2 Mix -Homemade Crafts- 🧢🐢✈️🧡


I was asked to design this CAL for Crazy about Crochet. This Amigurumi Crochet Along (CAL) started in Dutch on September 13, 2022, which lasted 4 weeks.


Pilot Bas is available in three color versions, each of which has been given its own name. Bas – with the green pants and the red plane, Bart – with the sea-green pants and the light blue plane and Babs – a lady with a yellow pinafore and a pink plane. The crochet pattern contains both the explanation of the pants and the pinafore, so you can choose what your dog will be wearing.


In these 4 weeks Bas, Bart or a Babs in his/her plane was crocheted. If you want to participate in this CAL, it is necessary that you are a member of Crazy about Crochet. The patterns of this CAL will remain available at Gek op Haken, so it is possible to crochet this CAL in your own speed! More information about Crazy about Crochet membership: Click here.

Background Information and Inspiration

In South America it is possible to make fun plane trips in 2-engine planes. I did that in Brazil above the Pantanal and in Peru I looked at the Nazca lines from above in an airplane.


For this CAL I enjoyed sharing this experience with you. Dogs are all over the world. That's why it's more fun that Bas * The Aviator Dog has taken his plane to fly around Brazil and Peru and to do that together with Babs. How nice is it, they even brought their suitcases to discover South America!


I hope you will enjoy the CAL of Bas * The Aviator Dog in Airplane as much as I had with inventing and designing the Dog and the airplane. 🧢🐢✈️🧡


Lot of crochet fun! 🧢🐢✈️🧡

Big Hugs
