About Lulu, the crochet narwhal pattern

Nautical is such a beautiful theme for a nursery or child’s bedroom. There is just something calming about the sea.

Lulu is a nice sized stuffie measuring approximately 9” from the tip of the horn to the tail. She can be carried by her tail, fins or even in the crook of the arm. If you want to make a smaller narwhal, I would suggest going down a (or a couple) of hook sizes and using the corresponding yarn weight.
