What you need to know for making great amigurumi

Today I would like to share with you my Pinterest board Ideas for Amigurumi that I feed with tips and tutorials from great amigurumi makers that I find on the web.
I started it off at the beginning of my journey in the amigurumi world and I’m always amazed how much I have learnt thanks to the knowledge spread across the world by great crocheters generous enough to share their experience with the rest of the world.

Little Cat The Ami

I needed a keychain so I thought to use Little Cat The Ami and take this chance for refreshing the pattern adding more photos and changing some stitches here and there.

Rose Butterfly The Ami

by Mary’s Amiland, March 2015

Rose had been in my plans for a long time but I was afraid to start her because I expected her wings would give me lots of headaches. I wanted to include a mandala motif in her wings, I spent long hours experimenting, combining colours and …”frogging” (i.e. ripping out) before I could come up with something I liked. Despite everything I had a wonderful time designing and then crocheting Rose, her smiling face makes me proud and rewards me of all the efforts.

Rose is my third insect and she is part of a bigger project of mine. In my fantastic world she is the fiancée of Dan Bumblebee which is the first insect of this project. The series will end with a fiancé for Lily Ladybug but I have not decided yet which insect might be… looking forward to it!
