Halloween Monsters

For Halloween, I decided to make a little treat for trick or treaters stopping by. These little monsters are done in the round -increasing until 24 stitches starting with six in a magic ring. A few even rounds and then I started the decrease. The first decrease round I did in the back loops so…

Amigurumi Gods Wood Tree

I love Game of Thrones so much that I wanted to create something in crochet to remind me of the show. Since it takes me forever to come up with crochet patterns, I decided to use an existing one in the book Amigurumi Toy Box by Ana Paula Rimoli as a starting point. She has…

Pink Goblin

A few weeks ago, I crocheted my husband a goblin which my daughter loved. Well she didn’t quite love it as is but she loved it enough to play with it. Then she decided she wanted her own but this one with a pink body instead of green, a skirt, and just a smile instead…

Crochet Apple

Last year I crocheted my daughter an apple as a teacher’s gift. It went over so well that I decided to make one this year for her new teacher. So I guess it is now a tradition, huh? I use PlanetJune’s free crochet apple pattern that works up really quick and turns out great. I…

Donkey

I love donkeys and could not believe that I hadn’t crocheted one yet. I had looked at a few patterns but didn’t see anything that was what I was looking for – so I just winged it. This is the little guy that I came up with. I made him so he is sitting down…

Peas in a Pod

Here is a little amigurumi I have been wanting to do for a while – peas in a pod. I’m not quite finished as my peas have no faces but really liked how they turned out – especially on my first try! I used the pea pod pattern and the ideal sphere pattern. I think…

A New Project

Yes! I started a project last night and it felt fantastic. Some months back, I picked up Amigurumi Toy Box because I love Ana Paula Riomoli’s work. Also the unicorn on the front cover called to me saying ‘crochet me you know you want to.’ So I bought the book and started the unicorn. And..that’s…
