I sold a bunch of my amigurumi critters to my co-workers before Winter Break, so I was happy to make some more for presents. They’re generally easy, as long as the pattern makes sense, & usually turn out pretty darn cute!
Like I said in the knitting post below, if you’re not a member of Ravelry, the pattern links might not work. Some are directly from the creator’s own website though.
Here is a giant bone I made for Ruben. He’s on vacation at Eth’s parents’ house, so I can’t wait to see what he does when I give it to him! It’s from this pattern. I used many strands of white yarn, held together, along with a large hook. He is a Saint Bernard, after all!
Here are various crocheted flowers from Ravelry. I can’t remember which patterns they were, but if you search under flowers, choose free crochet patterns w/pictures & a bunch will come up. I swear I am addicted to that place! I made more than this, but didn’t take pictures of all of them. I sewed one of them onto my sister’s green hat (that I gave her a year or so ago) & it’s so cute!
Ethan gave me some pretty obvious “hints” that he would love a Donatello Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, so I made this one from Craftster (another amazing site!). I made the shell different though, because I didn’t like how the small, circular one looked. I just fiddled around, but didn’t keep track of how I did it. :oP The same lady that made the pattern also has a Splinter one on there, but I am not ready to tackle another one just yet!
This is a ginormous Chubby Fish, for our kitty, Yoda, filled with catnip! He’s going to tear the shit out of it, I’m sure, so I had to take a picture of it in it’s pre-fucked up state.
Here’s a Little Ninja that I made for my friend, Chris, whose birthday was on Christmas Eve. Hopefully he’s not checking my blog because I haven’t seen him yet! Oh well. Hi Chris, if you read this! And I didn’t realize how ninja-full my crocheting has been. Weird.
