Lunar the Lemur

The 2021 Lunar the Lemur Amigurumi Crochet Along


Life-sized fully articulated amigurumi

Lunar is a life-sized, fully articulated amigurumi lemur by Projectarian, designed with realistic proportions and features. She has detailed crochet shaping on her face, such as nostrils, an open mouth and tongue, which are all crocheted in one piece with the head. Made with the suggested materials, she will stand 75 cm tall, excluding her tail. She’s about the size of a human toddler, and yes, she can fit into human clothes too! All of Lunar’s body parts are supported with wire; her neck, digits and tail can bend, and her arms and legs are attached with large buttons so they can swing. This gives her almost unlimited pose-ability so your lemur will be able to climb, hang, read, knit and do headstands! Watch the video below to see Lunar live in action! This project requires a small amount of hand-sewing to attach Lunar’s eyes, ears, tail and furry bib. If you prefer not to add wires to your lemur, you can still make the arms and legs swing, or sew them in a static pose of your own choice. The tutorial includes techniques on how to work with fur yarn in a hassle-free way. It also teaches a truly invisible colour change technique, which you can learn right now – CLICK TO SEE VIDEO

This pattern is rated as Expert level of difficulty due to the complex shaping techniques involved, but don’t panic! I have written it with you in mind and gone to great lengths to include every morsel of information you could possibly need to complete your project, and added generous visual supplements, with over 850 pictures to guide you through every moment of your project. Throughout the CAL, I’ll post free supplemental videos on my YouTube channel to help you with the trickiest parts of the pattern.

There’s also a dedicated team of real humans in the Hooked on Sunshine group on Facebook, to help you with any questions, as well as a large support community in the same group, who are your fellow lemur-makers in the CAL! We’ll look after you and ensure that you’re fully equipped to successfully complete your own bedazzling lemur!
