Free Pattern Friday: Pyukumuku Amigurumi

mukuAll

A 2″ tall, 3″ long amigurumi of the Pokemon Pyukumuku.

So it’s yesterday afternoon and I don’t have any free patterns ready so I looked through all the Pokemon and picked one that would work up fast and here we are. Not super happy with it but that’s what I get for trying to quickly whip up something. Took about 2 hours maybe(?), but I spent way more time than necessary trying to figure out the eyes and mouth…thing. I remembered I had some embroidery floss from my brief stint of cross-stitching so I slapped that on there. Not sure if I like it enough to use in future pieces but we’ll see.

Pattern: Blobfish Amigurumi

A 2” tall, 5” long amigurumi of a blobfish.

The pattern is available on Ravelry and on Etsy.

So a couple of weeks ago I randomly remembered that this creature exists and decided to crochet it. This was the first time in a while I played with weird body shapes and I think it turned out pretty good. Pretty blobby.

Apologies for no Free Pattern Friday last week, but very bad things happened on Thurday. Veeeery bad things. Bad things on top of  bad things. Ol’ blobby’s face here pretty much sums it up. But at least I’ve been super motivated to crochet lately so I have a bunch of patterns ready to be typed up. Might be a free one this week but I just frogged what I was working on because perfectionism is a crippling disease. Off to  think of something quick and simple to make.

Get the pattern on Ravelry or Etsy.
