I'm doing a mystery swap on ravelry and i got someone who crochets, i think i've got a good pattern for a mystery pattern but i want to be sure it won't be too hard for her. i can't even read crochet so if someone could just give me an idea how hard this pattern is i would be very greatful. thanks!

It depends on the skill of the receiver. It can be tricky if you don't know about increases and decreases. Why don't you ask them what kinds of things they like to make or look at their projects and that will give you an idea of what to do.

they've made little pets and stuff before so i thought this might work

I've done something like this before

The pig and the turtle, you have to scroll down quite a bit.

It's not really difficult if you know how to increase and decrease, but I have to say I don't like working such narrow tubes (as for legs etc). It's a little bit tricky not to miss a stitch and such.

So, just my opinion.

I don't think the crocheting part would be too hard. For me, it would be the sewing together of the body parts.

That too. I've sewn them on somehow, but I doubt it will be for eternity. But they are not to be tugged on :D

Cute pattern! It should be fine since you know the person has made animals before. I'm like Melanie and avoid projects that require sewing little parts together.
