This Joe Exotic crochet doll kit comes with 21 pages of detailed instructions, along with 57 photos to make your job easier.
I don't know about you but I am completely captivated by the absolutely bizarre Netflix show called Tiger King. After its release, the show quickly went viral and it soared to such popularity that now there is a Joe Exotic crocheted doll that you can own and it comes with its own mini tiger! Yes, you read that right. Created by the talented Allison Hoffman of Crafty Is Cool, this plush doll, or more accurately known as amigurumi is nothing but a re-creation of the now-iconic promotional photo of Joe Exotic.
On her Instagram account, Hoffman revealed her stunning creation with several pictures. From Joe's signature mullet hairstyle to his eyebrow ring, necklace, and knee brace, the artist has taken care of every detail possible. The only difference is that the Joe Crochet doll comes with a crocheted cub tiger, instead of a full-grown one. At this point, most of us are locked in our house with nothing much to do other than binge-watching Netflix. If you are looking for an offline hobby that will give you a break from watching online television, then this is it.
The product description reads, "The gun-toting, tiger tackling, mullet sporting, gay polygamist that we didn't know we needed, its the Tiger Man. He comes with a tiger cub. The Oklahoman measures 12.5" tall and the tiger cub sits at 3.25" tall. This pattern is 21 pages long and includes 57 photos. It has lots of details so beginners might like the challenge, intermediates might breeze through, and advanced crocheters will laugh at its simplicity. Basic techniques like crocheting in the round, construction, increasing and decreasing, and basic embroidery are needed. The last page of the pattern includes a comprehensive list of yarns and links to purchase them if you'd like. They are all easily substituted. Most are worsted weight and can be found at your neighborhood Walmart, craft store, or Amazon."
Priced at $8.25, the materials are available on the Crafty Is Cool Etsy page. The product comes with 21 pages of detailed instructions, along with 57 photos to guide you through the intricate details. People were clearly impressed by the product and left impressive reviews on the page. One person wrote, "Clear directions! Lots of helpful pictures. Easy to follow. Thank you for ANOTHER great pattern!" A second one added, "Great pattern. Easy to follow and understand!" A third quipped, "Love Love your work !!!! I highly recommend this pattern. So much fun ."
