Pattern: Chinese New Year Doll Here at long last is the pattern for the Chinese New Year Doll that I made as many of you have been asking for it! Once again, thank you so much for your encouragement and support of this blog! I am happy to provide this pattern since, as many of you have written, seeing this doll has rekindled your passion for crocheting or got you interested in amigurumi. // ]]> This is my first original pattern and the first one I’ve ever written up, so if you have any questions or find any errors, please let me know! Let’s begin! Materials: Note: I worked in continuous rounds (vs. joined rounds) and used the 2.00 mm crochet hook all throughout to get a tighter gauge.

Patterns Queen Ann Rose LariatLavender nr 2 by gsakowskidesigns Lue and Sue My husband and I have always said we wanted to paint together. Well, that's been 8 years now.

Lue and Sue Crochet Corner: Spring Bunnies Since this past Tuesday was the first official day of Spring, I thought I would do a Crochet Corner post on my Spring Bunnies! I’m hoping the weather will be Spring-like, but we’re known to have unexpected blasts of winter where I live *fingers crossed*. It was also exactly one year ago when my first pattern for CRAFT got published on their website. I was beyond thrilled when former editor-in-chief Natalie Zee Drieu commissioned me to design a Spring project even though I had only been blogging for two months. After it went live, Natalie told me that the Spring Bunnies pattern was extremely popular, and I’ve seen more final pictures of the Spring Bunnies than any of my other amigurumi designs! First up, we have Grace of Craft by Grace from Indonesia. Grace taught Erni how to crochet, and here is her first ever amigurumi project! Oraflana made this beautiful pink Spring Bunny. Christine of Oh So Pathos from Montreal, Canada made this bunny for her mom.
Spring Bunnies When Craftzine asked me to make a Spring amigurumi pattern for them, I excitedly jumped at the opportunity. Several months ago, I was inspired by a photo I saw on tumblr (there was no source at the time) of a floppy-eared bunny with big feet adorned with a pretty flower. As soon as I saw that photo, I knew I wanted to try making something similar. I recently found out that the bunny was made by Lue and Sue who does absolutely beautiful work. Ryan and I had an idea to use the same pattern to make two bunnies: a boy bunny with ears sticking straight up, and a girl bunny with floppy ears. The boy bunny could be holding a carrot in hopes of wooing the girl bunny! I first worked on crocheting a wide head with big eyes positioned towards the bottom of the face. Instead of using felt for the lining of the ears, I decided to try using a pretty fabric as other amigurumi crafters have used. For the feet, I decided to still use felt to contrast the fabric. And here he is all complete!
Mini Ami Octopus Take 2 As promised, here is the updated pattern for my Mini Octopus's. In this version I have added eye placement instructions and a new way to make the tentacles all in one piece. If you would like the old version (making tentacles individually) please see this page :) Mini Ami OctopusYou Will Need:. Crochet Hook (I used 3.5mm [E]. This will keep your stitches nice and tight and the tentacles curly). Abbreviations. GaugeNo gauge, just keep your stitches nice and tight to avoid gaps in your work Finished Size 1 3/4’’ Tall by 3’’ Wide (approx) using a 3.5mm (E) hook Other Info. Body1. *Add Eyes Now*13. *Stuff Now* 14. Tentacles 1. 3. Repeat from Round 2, 7 more times, to make 8 tentacles. It's gonna get a bit tight squeezing them HDC's over the SC's, but they will all fit in! If you wanted, say, 7 tentacles instead, just swap the 8 in the beginning round for a 7 and repeat Round 2 and 3, 7 times. Assembly. Ta-Da! I hope them instructions were abit easier than the last ones. Have fun!

Free Amigurumi Crochet Patterns with love for the Nerdy » » Angry Birds Red Cardinal and Green Pig Amigrumi Pattern The pig never saw it coming... Angry Bird is one of my mom’s favorite games and since I have made her seventy three billion NobyNoby Boys, it seemed a good idea to go with something different for her xmas gift this year, so Angry Birds it was. Things were down to the wire (it’s been nuts this year), so two amis were all I could put together, but I do believe they were a hit. I realize there are already several patterns for these available online but between the significant portion of them that were pay (tsk tsk!), the simpler than ideal shaping on some (pig is not a perfect ball people… he’s just not!) and my general (read TOTAL) reluctance (read UNWILLINGNESS) for reading or following any pattern (inclusive of my own) I decided to whip mine up on the fly all the while keeping decent enough notes to publish the pattern since it’s been a while and you’ve all been so fabulously patient.

Fill your world with crochet flowers | Mollie Makes July is a miserable month round these parts. As I look out of the window at Mollie HQ the wind is blowing a hoolie and it’s raining cats and dogs. Ah good old British summertime! Thank goodness issue 3 of Mollie Makes is a little ray of sunshine, with its bright sunny cover and kaleidoscope of crochet flowers making us feel all warm inside. Creativity runs through Carmen’s bones – by day she is a sign painter and by night she gets hooking, making lots of lovely blooms to sell in her Etsy shop. So stunning, these would make a lovely table decoration at a wedding. Maybe the bride could hold her very own crochet bouquet and the groom a corsage!
°*°Picasso e cin°cin°*° Qualche anno fa, andai a vedere una mostra, in zona Navigli a Milano.Per ragioni nostalgiche e poetiche, resta una delle zone meneghine che adoro di più.Remember a parte, più dei quadri all'interno di quella esposizione, mi colpì un pensiero di Picasso, che la gallerista aveva incorniciato all'ingresso. Il titolo del testo eraChe cos’è l’arte?. La cosa che più mi sorprende è che tanta gente abbia la pretesa di «capire» l'arte. Mi chiedo: ha senso voler «capire» il canto degli uccelli? Ha senso voler penetrare il mistero della notte, dei fiori, delle cose belle che ci circondano e che amiamo? Eppure, quando viene il momento dell'arte, la gente chiede di «capire», Perché?. Io credo che l'unica cosa che la gente deve capire è che l'artista crea perché deve creare, perché possiede la sua arte. L’artista è soltanto una piccola, piccolissima parte dell'universo e non merita di ricevere più attenzione di tutti gli altri elementi che compongono l'universo e che,
