I made this for MalonB in the Amigurumi Swap. It’s about 8” tall standing and about 5” at the widest. The tail is about 4.5” long and 2.5” wide. I couldn’t decide on how I wanted to position the legs so I made them jointed! Now it can sit or stand! :D
I’ve been wanting to make the Rainbow Unicorn Amigurumi in other colors and designs but it’s difficult to find time to make things for fun in between baby time (which is like 98% of the time), writing up patterns, working on orders, etc. So I stayed up a little late and got up early to make a yellow and pink Pegasus! :D
I embroidered on details instead of using felt, made the mane/tail thicker and longer for a french braid, and I used small yarn & 1.30mm hook to make the flowers.
The next Unicorn project is probably going to be a pink and blue pony. (And I’ll probably do MLP project later. I’m just not sure which one to make first. Any requests?)
I made a baby dress for a friend using the Angel Wings Pinafore Pattern by Maxine Gonser. I love crochet shell stitch dresses!! The pattern is for 0-3 months size but I wanted to make it in 9-12 months size so it’ll fit during summer (or later most likely since the baby seems to be extra small!).
Instead of using the hook and yarn weight specified, I used I/5.5mm hook and Red Heart Super Savers yarn. It ended up fitting my 6 month old and he wears 9-12 month clothes.
I made a flower button using a B/2.25mm hook and Knit Picks Shined Worsted:
R2: *Ch 2, 3 dc, ch 2, sl st into same st. Sl st in next st.* Repeat from * to end. (5 petals)
I was drawn to this pattern because of Gabeycakes’s version on Ravelry:
Cute buttons and the yarn is a pretty color! It’s NaturallyCaron.com Spa in Ocean Spray.
I’ve been getting requests for the pattern of this deer amigurumi. It’s an amigurumi design that I never finished making though. I started on it a couple of years ago and only put up this photo. I think I frogged most of it last year to use the yarn for a different project.
I couldn’t find my old sketches so I drew a quick doodle of how it was going to look like! (From what I can remember… Might have planned on the tail having some white.)
Gifts for Crocheters & Knitters
I want to share some goodies for crocheters/knitters that I’ve had in my wishlist for a while.
