BEASTS & BEINGS
Amigurumi crochet is a great fun technique which uses a simple double crochet stitch, increasing and decreasing with the same stitch to create crochet creatures, crochet characters, crochet monsters and pretty much anything else you can imagine. Any beast or being you can think of, if you can imagine it, you can crochet it!!!
I have made few different creatures, which you can have a look at in my FaceBook ALBUM but the one I would like to mention here is Stewie Griffin…. I have been asked to make one for a present and have been mulling the idea over for some time. then finally i have sat down and started making him. because the big head small body seems to be a theme in a lot of my pieces, i decided to write the pattern down so i can always remember the general workings of it and also, so i can perfect the oval shape for my future crochet projects.
The actual character of Stewie is however not for sale, as he has a pride place in our house, amongst other carefully collected pieces. 🙂
Watch this space for more FAMILY GUY related patterns – i am currently working on BRIAN and possibly the Couch to sit them on….
I myself has mostly used this technique to create and perfect a shape for crochet bears and if making a crochet teddy bear is something you are interested in please check out CROCHET BEARS page of my website. There you can find links to patterns on how to make them, current range and a little bit of information about each bear. Some are also available for sale HERE.
MILE OF MICE PROJECT
Also, on 30 October 2013 there was a project called MILE OF MICE which came to a close and to which I have contributed my 3 BLIND MICE…. Read more about the Fundraiser event for Alzheimer’s HERE or visit their FACEBOOK page to see all the brilliant mice they have received as contribution to the great cause…
WELL DONE EVERYONE!!! It was great to be a part of such a great project!!!
As mentioned above, anything is possible in the amigurumi technique, so if you have an animal in mind you would like to commission, let me know and i will design and make one specially for you…
