Animals for hot air balloon baby mobile crochet pattern
If you previously purchased my crochet patterns for the Hot air balloon mobile (see picture 6), the Big Hot air balloon with four animals (see picture 7), or the Elephant in a balloon (see picture 8), now you can finally switch the animals! This crochet pattern includes the instructions to make five new animals (a turtle, a polar bear, a koala, a mouse, and a sloth) that fit the hot air balloons' baskets. Please note that the five animals are devoid of legs because they are made exclusively to fill the baskets of the hot air balloons (or any other use you will want to do).

This tutorial is a PDF document with 6 pages of detailed instructions, with more than 30 pictures. This crochet pattern is written in English (US crochet terms).
You will receive an email with two PDF files immediately after payment has been cleared.
To make this pattern you will need to know how to:
- begin with a magic ring

I used Yarn and colors "Must-Have" (cotton), and Schoeller&Stahl "Limone" (cotton)

With a 3mm hook and fingering yarn, each animal will measure 2.7x1.5 inches (7x4 cm)
