Georgeous George is the mascot of 2 Wish Upon a Star – the charity for whom we make all of the blankets. An elephant was chosen for the mascot as elephants never forget – there are elephants in the memory boxes and these are given to children in suddenly bereaved families. He’s also the mascot who appears at events like the Llantrisant tennis club day – he’ll also be at the Wobblies and Wheelies event (the children’s sponsored bike ride) in September.
As a challenge, I decided to make a George in crochet – here’s my prototype – he’s a real cutie – I must say that I’m really pleased with him! I’ve written up the pattern, and would really appreciate some people to test the pattern for accuracy and readability: once it’s checked, I’m intending to sell it with all of the proceeds going to 2 Wish Upon a Star.
So, if you’d like to test the pattern, please contact me at CwtchofComfort@gmail.com – looking forward to seeing how he works for other people!
