Ever since seeing Fantastic Beasts, I’ve seen an array of crocheted Bowtruckles and Nifflers out on the Internet, but never an Occamy. Until now, however!
Isn’t it adorable?
I crocheted it around a pipe cleaner, which simultaneously provided a wire to make it pose-able, and the stuffing in the form of the fluff.
I teased out the threads on the crest and tail to see what it’d look like, and I like the effect.
Cute little wings. You can see the different colours in them in this picture.
BB8 is still slightly unsure of the intentions of our new friend.
While I was crocheting the Occamy, I wrote a pattern for it. If I get more requests, I may write up and post the pattern here. I’m also taking name suggestions, as I don’t think we got any of the names of Newt’s Occamys. (Is it Occamies for plural?)
Anyways, see ya!
