Dipper the Playtpus Pear

The 2022 Dipper the Playtpus Pear Amigurumi Crochet Pattern


Magically transforms into a pear

Dipper longed to live in the Milky Way and swim the River of Stars. One day she wished upon a shooting star and was magically transformed into a pear, hanging ripe on a pear tree in an orchard. At harvest time, this magical platypus-pear was picked, along with all the regular pears, and swept across the galaxy on the Royal Jelly Bean Express for delivery at Orion Spur, which, as everybody knows, is in the Milky Way. Dipper, who had turned back into a platypus by then, took a flying leap off the train gondola and landed in the River of Stars with a plop, where she lived happily ever after.

This pattern is part of the Projectarian’s Year of Fur event, where all Projectarian patterns are fur themed for 2022. It features the use of fur yarn for crocheting a platypus that can turn inside out to become a pear, as part of my Smuggle-Tuck Pets collection of fruits which contain a secret pet inside. The option is included for both models to be made separately and stuffed. The platypus and pear’s loose features are crocheted separately and assembled by sewing. Crocheting with and sewing fur might be more challenging than regular yarn, but fur also hides mistakes very well! To give yourself an easier time, be sure to watch my video on how to crochet with fur.
