Claudine

So cute, as always. Love his hair!

Claudine

Sorry...I guess I gave away some of the surprise. I was just so excited to post a comment.

Kara

Thanks PooToo! It took me a bit of "trial and error" (with lots of error!) to figure out a system of parts to come up with an acceptable assembled lobster. :-)

Kara

Hair Claudine??? My lobster may have a bit of fuzz but he doesn't exactly have hair. Perhaps you are talking about the fisherman? If so, THANKS. I'll get photos of the fisherman posted as soon as I can get Mike to go to the docks to do a photo shoot.

I love it!!!

Kara

Thanks Michelle!!! You can make one for Jonah, except they are pretty little (palm of the hand size) so maybe he'd have a blue lobster dinner... :-).

gédane

merciiiiiii so cute!

Kara

Thanks Gédane. I love your blog! Very beautiful projects and photos.

Howie Woo

They're so realistic, I'm already boiling the water and getting out the butter!

But they're also so cute, I would probably set those lucky lobsters free :)

Beautifully made and beautifully photographed too!

Kara

Ha ha ha! Thanks Howie. Re: my lobsters being realistic: I was trying to go for the essence of real lobsters, but I tried to "boil them down" (to use lobster speak) to just the key details. Take care Howie.

I love these little guys!

Silverleaf

Thank you very much, I've been looking for a tiny realistic lobster pattern for ages and yours is perfect. I especially love the fact that it's blue, because all the toy lobsters I usually see are red. :)

Silverleaf

Oh my goodness, my little lobster turned out SO CUTE! I added antennae and did a little extra sewing to smooth out the claws a bit, and also used a few stitches to secure the legs and claw arms because I didn't want to risk accidentally pulling them out.

And it was nice and simple to crochet, even for a novice like me (I've knitted since I was 7 or 8, but only learned to crochet last year). Thank you again!

Kara

Hi Silverleaf. I'm so glad your little lobster turned out well. I would LOVE TO SEE HIM. Feel free to send me a photo. There is also a Ravelry group where you can add a photo of your lobster. You can find it here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/little-blue-lobster/people

You have to be a member of Ravelry to post photos, but if you're not a member, you should join (it's free!). Take care and thanks for letting me know that you liked the pattern.

Hi Kara

I absolutely love your lobster! I am desperately looking for someone who could make me 100 little lobsters in red white and blue as wedding favours for my wedding next year. Do you by any chance do commissions or know anyone who does?! Thank you! Erin

Hi Erin.

First of all, congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

My suggestion on how to find someone to make you 100 little lobsters is to go the Karabouts lobster project page on Ravelry. Here is the link.

Once you join Ravelry, you can look at 175 or so lobsters made by Ravelry members, choose lobsters you like, and then contact the people who made them (through Ravelry) to see if they are interested in making your lobsters!!!

Good luck and have a very happy wedding!!!
