A Little Amigurumi

My kids love little crochet animals.  I had picked up this book a couple months ago because of all the adorable patterns they had. 

Martingale (the publisher of this  amigurumi crochet book, and also quilting books) is having a Amigurumi Crochet-a-long, so since my crochet hooks were out and handy, I thought that I would work a couple up.  That and my kids were asking me when I was ever going to make anything out of the book, so here are the ones I had time to do.  I used Lily Sugar and Cream thread on all of the little creation. They would make great yarn stash projects. I used up two more little skeins of yarn. 

A little tea cup.  It is suppose to be hot cocoa, but I left the marshmallow off the top.  I also made a little saucer to go with it.  I plan to make myself one to use as a pincushion.

Next, a super scary snake.  Look out!  Of course, in camo thread.

Lastly a little sea life, which is probably my favorite. Our cat loves to attack it too.  She drug it off the couch to play with it.  I would have loved to have got a picture with her and it, but she always seems to know when I get the camera out and runs away.  I guess she is a bit camera shy.  Maybe, I can catch her attacking it again. 

If you have this great book, I hope that you will join the crochet along.  It is running until May 24th.

Pin It Now!


  1. They are adorable!!! I have a Pinterest page dedicated to amigurumi... but have yet to make any!

  2. I'd love to do these, but my crocheting's not quite up to it yet, can't get the hang of decreasing. Yous are wonderful.

  3. Eeek! I love them but I don't crochet well enough! Yours are awesome!

  4. That's funny....Amigurumi was quite a fad a few years ago...probably around the same time as beanie babies???? Anyway...I will have to dig out the patterns I have for the little critters. I thought they were a lot of fun even to stick in adult stockings at Christmas!

    I like the little sea life the best too.
