Square #1: The Lorax

I started reading Dr. Seuss again when my son was a few months months old. I’ve bought most of the Dr. Seuss books in apps and have fallen in love with them all over again. The Lorax is one of my favorite Dr. Seuss characters.

When I was trying to create this little guy, he kept coming out looking like a bald bearded old man… Which was NOT what I wanted. I kept coming back to him time and time again because I REALLY wanted to crochet him. After tons of hard work and trying to figure out a bunch of things on excel. I am super happy with how he has come out and I hope you like him too!

I’m very very very excited to share the first of nine characters with you and really looking forward to seeing personal touches you decide to add to them.

I hope you will join https://www.facebook.com/groups/478563402305870/ and share your version of this little guy. I can’t wait to see your creations!1st squareThe Lorax graph is 31×30 squares. I made mine in C2C with the HDC stitch using an I hook.

As previously mentioned… The written pattern will need to be decoded. Each character represents a block and a color. The arrows are the direction in which the pattern is to be read. For example:

  • Odds are read Left to Right: 5 is  1 Dark Orange and 4 Greens.
  • Evens are read Right to Left: 6 is 4 Green 1 Dark Orange  1 Bright Orange

*=Guacamole           f=Sunshine          n=White       g=Mango         n=White         x=Pumpkin       s=Super Duper Yellow                 q=Royal Blue (red heart)     r=Royal Blue (caron)
