Free Pattern Friday: Cactus Bunny Amigurumi

bunnyAll

A 4″ tall amigurumi of a cactus bunny…topiary…plant thing.

In my quest of scouring the internet for cute things to crochet I found a picture of this thing. So I made it. Woo.

With this I was playing around with working in the posts, so you might need to google working in the back posts with single crochet if you’re not familiar with it. I like the effect it gives and I’ve used it in a revamp of my Cookie Mouse amigurumi that may or may not be posted soon.

Also I’ve added a page for the master key so check that out up top if you forget what something means (underlines perhaps?).

Free Pattern: Luma Amigurumi

A 3″ tall amigurumi of a Luma from Super Mario Galaxy.

Paaaaaaattern update. After acquiring my beautiful new Stylecraft Special DK yarn I needed something to try it out on and since I only had a limited amount of colors I chose this. Plus I’ve been wanting to fix this pattern for a while because the little swirl at the top of the body was needlessly complex. Here’s the before and after:

lumaBoth

Soooo much better.

Changes:
– Edited body pattern to make it easier
– Slightly edited the patterns of the arms and legs
– No more disgusting felt eyes
– Used different colored yarn

Pattern: Incineroar Amigurumi

A 4″ tall amigurumi of the Pokemon Incineroar.

The pattern is available on Ravelry and on Etsy.

This is more or less just me transferring this pattern over to my new blog. But I did make some changes and I took new pictures so that’s as good of a reason as any to post a comparison pic.

incineroarBoth

Changes:
– Added a row to the eyebrows
– Removed a row from the tail
– Only one crochet hook size needed, because it wasn’t necessary to have two different ones in the first place
– Used slightly different colors for the eyes and body

That’s it. Nothin’ special. Enjoy the novelty of me posting two things in one day. 😛

Pattern: Mister Fox Amigurumi

A 4.5″ tall amigurumi of a cute little foxy guy.

The pattern is available on Ravelry and on Etsy.

Hi, so I died again. Sorry ’bout that. But the good news is I finally have my crocheting life (pretty much) sorted, and by that I mean I have now decided I will only* use Stylecraft Special DK yarn for my amigurumi. There, done, decision final. You have no idea how much it has been agonizing me to keep using a whole bunch of different types of yarn with different sizes, quality, colors, etc. So my raging perfectionism has led me to Stylecraft and I freaking love it why haven’t I been using this the whole time the past 5 years have been pointless without you in my life. Any who, I’ve sold all my yarn that’s not near DK/sport** size and once I use up the rest of it (which is still 2 big bins of yarn but whatever) I will switch over to my new love.

*Unless I need a color they don’t have
** Seriously I will never understand yarn sizes. I have sport weight yarn that is pretty much the exact same size as the DK weight. Why are they different? I dunno, maybe I’m just stupid.

Onto what you actually care about. Here’s a brand new pattern, a fox that I have dubbed Mister Fox because I can’t think of any name for it besides “fox” and that’s super bland. So I added a generic word. I am very creative. Anyway, I would promise that I absolutely have more patterns that are going to be posted very soon, but every time I say that I don’t do anything for 4 months so I’m not going to say it.

Happy crocheting and all that jazz.
