After a terrible bushfire season in Australia that reduced the koala population significantly, Kiki the koala welcomes a newborn joey bringing hope and joy back to the local community.
Dressed in native flowers and leaves, Kiki is a glowing new mother, celebrating new life and her new love.
I have used DMC Natura Just cotton yarn with the colours:
003 - Sable - light grey
039 - Ombre - dark brown
083 - Ble - yellow
079 - Tilleul - light green
081- Acanthe - light orange
006 - Rose Layet - light pink
1 ball of grey, and less than 50g of each other colour will be enough.
I have used DMC Happy Chenille yarn for the fluffy white part of the Koala’s ear:
020 - Snowflake - white
*Alternatively, you can use white DMC natura cotton yarn (001 - Ibiza - white)
Black embroidery thread
2.25mm crochet hook
Safety eyes (8 mm)
You can use any yarn of your choice, just adjust your crochet hook according to the yarn fibre.
