Free Pattern Friday: Onigiri Amigurumi

SAM_2709More pictures and a downloadable PDF of the pattern are available on Ravelry.

Didn’t I just do this? This week went by super fast. Anywho, this was an exercise in working with different shapes. Let me know if you have any questions because it is a bit unusual. It was actually pretty fun trying to figure out how to make it work. I’ve never actually had onigiri but I definitely want to try it sometime.

Also, sorry for two white patterns back-to-back. If anyone has trouble seeing it properly let me know and I’ll tinker with the picture.

Final piece should measure about 2″ tall.
