Although I am not included in this group, so many of my friends and family love to eat lobster (the cockroach of the ocean). I always knew what was for supper when the table was lined with garbage bags and the hammers come out. Even the local airport, Stanfield International Airport, sells live lobster. Louis Lobster represents Nova Scotia culture and he is named for the Fortress of Louisbourg where I worked during the summer in high school.
Louis is 10" long and 4" wide and this pattern is set at an intermediate level (check stitches used below). Louis Lobster is made in 6 pieces: 2 claws (2 parts each), head & body, and 3 tail fins. Like most amigurumi, this piece is worked in a continuous spiral. This listing is for the pattern, if you would like to have the doll, just send me a message.
** What you should know **
1. This pattern is written in clear North American terms.

3. Instructions given for all stitches

The Louis Lobster pictured were made with worsted weight (size 4) acrylic yarn from Red Heart, however you can use any size yarn (will affect final size) or any type yarn. The Silver Hook likes to use acrylic yarn for babies since it is stain resistant and durable yarn.
