Baby Humpback Whale
"Here's a medium-sized humpback whale softie that's perfect for cuddling! I thought it might be interesting to base a crochet project on a sewing template, so this whale is actually worked flat, row by row. The top section is separate from the bottom section, and both are worked flat in one piece. Then both pieces are sewn together using a mattress stitch, which ends up making the seam invisible! The fins are also sewn right into the whale instead of attached after the whale is complete. Enjoy!"
