Clarington's Crochet

Postby Clarington » Tue Jul 07, 2015 10:45 am

I have been absolutely loving amigurumi lately.
Here's one of my first original creations, Lolo from Adventures of Lolo.

I'm really working on developing my pattern writing ability, so the pattern is available for free on my blog if anyone is interested. If anyone does end up making him, feedback on the pattern is always appreciated :)

Here's my next one - the prince from Katamari Damacy. He turned out exactly as I envisioned.

Oh my goodness! He came out so well!

Now some questions-
Is that Tunisian crochet?
Do you have a pattern?
How big did he end up being?

Thanks TigerLily!
Is that Tunisian crochet?

It's just single crochet but when I'm making amigurumi I crochet through the back loop only, so it looks a little different. I really like the look of the ridges left behind by the unworked front loops and find them incredibly valuable for attaching pieces and counting rounds.

Do you have a pattern?

I do! You can get in on my blog. I'm brand new to pattern making so if you do give it a go and find any issues please let me know :)

How big did he end up being?

He's fairly large - around 10 1/2 inches (27cm) from his butt to the top of his head. Close to 20 inches (50 cm) if you include his legs and antenna.

Awesome, thanks. I won't have time to make him in the too near future, but he's defintely been added to my list of things to do. :)

I made this guy quite a bit ago, but apparently didn't get around to posting him. I hope you like him. The pattern and some more pics are on my blog if anyone is interested.
