Announcement

I've been working on releasing some of my old patterns while also working on new designs. I'll be releasing 1-3 patterns a month. If there are any particular designs you're interested in making soon, let me know and I'll try to prioritize pattern releases accordingly.

Instead of posting on this blog regularly, I decided to start a newsletter for pattern releases & exclusive stuff like sneak peaks, contests, polls, and more! You can also see posts from me on Tiny Moon.

Amigurumi Pattern Releases

Some patterns I released in the past month:

Dalamatian Dog Amigurumi



Calico Cat Amigurumi



Penguin Amigurumi



Some more patterns will be available by August. Once those are done, I'll be making new samples of some more old designs like Pink Flamingo. The pink yarn I used before doesn't seem to be available anymore.

I made a big change to most of my new patterns. To reduce the number of pages, I won't be adding charts and progress photos for embroidery or assembly (unless it's recommended by testers).

I also changed my pattern format at the beginning pages a bit so the technique tutorials fit onto just one page. I'll do this to my old patterns as well later.


Ami-Along 2015

Come join us for a 2 month long crochet knit along at the Ami-Along 2015 on Ravelry!


This amigurumi a long is organized by several designers. Make any of the eligible patterns (free or paid) by the participating designers. 

Paid ones will take part in a prize drawing. We will also have photo contests and possibly quizzes/treasure hunts for more chances to win a prize. Info about the contests and prizes will be posted up in the near future.

Use the code AMIALONG2015 to get 25% off patterns and ebooks on the designer's Ravelry store. (The code doesn't work on patterns that are on other websites.)  The sale ends on July 12, 2015.

More amigurumi patterns?

I decided to try to write up some of my old patterns this summer. I can get them written up and available much faster by making them less detailed as my other patterns. (No step by step photos and charts.)

The Dalmatian Dog amigurumi pattern will be available soon. It just finished testing!

And the next ones I'll be working on soon: Calico Cat, Bunny, Penguin, Lion and maybe this Elephant? Let me know which ones you're interested in! :)

I also finally finished crocheting an old amigurumi design that has been hibernating for over 5 years. I think I will have to do photos for that pattern though so I'll probably have to write it up next year or so.

Pattern Re-Release: Tiny Fox Amigurumi


This design is one of my favorites. It's about 3" tall and has a pose-able & jointed tail. It was first released back in 2009. I took it down a couple years ago to reformat it to my new pattern stylesheet but I got busy with designing new amigurumi and never finished it. I found the file the other day and finally got it back up! :)

Blythe Bear Hat Crochet Pattern

Hello! I recently stumbled on the patterns I created for my Blythe doll and realized I never got around to sharing them. This is the pattern for the white bear hat!



If you make this hat, I'd love to see it! Please add it on Ravelry or post photos in the comments.




Materials/Tools:
  • Worsted weight yarn (Lion Brand's Vanna's Choice, Red Heart Super Savers, etc)
  • E/3.5mm crochet hook or size to obtain gauge
Gauge:
3.5 stitches and 2 rows per 1 inch (2.5cm)

Hat Height:
3.5 inches (9 cm)

Pattern:
  • The beginning ch counts as a stitch. When working increases at the beginning of the round, dc in same st as the join. When working even rounds, don't crochet in the same st as the join. Skip it and crochet the next st.
  • Join rounds with a sl st to the first stitch (the beginning ch).
Hat:

R1: Ch 2, 11 dc into magic ring. Join to ch 2. (12 sts)

R2: Ch 2, dc in same st as join. 2 dc in every st. Join to ch 2. (24 sts)

R3: Ch 2, dc in same st as join. Dc in next st. *2 dc in st, dc in next st* to end. Join to ch 2. (36 sts)

R4: Ch 2, dc in same st as join. Dc in next 8 sts. *2 dc in st, dc in next 8 sts* to end. Join to ch 2. (40 sts)

R5-7: Ch 2, dc in every st. Join to ch 2. (40 sts, 3 rounds)

R8: Ch 1, sc in every st. Join to ch 1. (40 sts)

Fasten off and weave in the end.


Ears (Make 2):

R1: Ch 2, 14 dc into magic ring. Join to ch 2. (15 sts)

Fasten off and leave tail for sewing. Sew the ears on R3 of the hat.




For the blue bear hat:

I stitched on button eyes and a nose & mouth on a piece of felt.
I also added a round of single crochet in the back loop to the ears.



NOTE:

Amigurumi patterns are still a work in progress, sorry! It's hard for me to find time to crochet and photograph without interruptions. However, I've been designing a lot of crochet wearables the past month and I'm planning on releasing those patterns this summer.
