Final Fantasy Crochet Moogle
~ free crochet pattern ~

MOOGLE! If you are a Final Fantasy fan, you’ll already know Moogles have appeared in nearly all Final Fantasy game series. This particular Moogle is from the recent March release – Final Fantasy Type-0 HD. There have been many variations of the cute little Moogle, such as cat-like ears, rabbit-like ears, different colored furs and pompoms. This new moogle features bear-like ears and its pompom is surrounded by a crown (…or gear?).

The Moogle I’ve crocheted was inspired by a Moogle cushion I saw on Amazon.com HERE. Instead of a cushion, though, I wanted a little Moogle doll as this was a gift for a Final Fantasy fan who lovessss these Mogs…and so I picked up my hook and started creating Moogle! This is an easy pattern that is suitable for beginners/advanced beginners. It works up quickly and the size can be customized using any hook you prefer. While I’ve written down which hooks I used for my own version – you don’t have to follow the suggested hook sizes, as I’ve just used whatever yarn I had on hand and therefore, whichever hook suitable for that type of yarn.

Good Fortune Clementine Tree
~ free crochet pattern ~

It’s been a busy month and I haven’t been able to work on my crochet projects as much as I wanted to. That said, I did manage to finish up my Good Fortune Clementine Tree on time for Chinese New Year (CNY), which is on February 19, 2015. As I’ve said on my last post, clementines are symbols of abundance and good fortune in the traditional Chinese culture. The bright orange color of the clementine (or mandarin oranges) also symbolizes ‘gold’, hence the belief that the fruit will bring in wealth and good fortune. And so I thought it would be a great idea to crochet one! Or…it’s just my excuse to not go out and buy one in this freezing weather, especially with the crazy snowstorms we’ve been having!

Chinese New Year Clementine
~ free crochet pattern ~

Chinese New Year (CNY) is only a couple of weeks away and I can’t wait to celebrate it with my family! Much like Christmas or Thanksgiving, there’s always lots of yummy food during this holiday. But of course, the best part is the little red packets, which contains lucky money 🙂  And so, since I’ve already worked on a few projects for Valentine’s Day, how could I forget about CNY?

When I was young, my parents would always buy a few clementines (or mandarin oranges…or tangerines…? they’re pretty much the same thing, right? OK, let’s move on!) and display it on the dinner table as decoration. The clementines are traditional symbols of abundance and good fortune.
