Cheer up! :)







WOW! winter has been long here. I been thinking of designing another hat..but then I decided I needed something to cheer me up with all this cold and raining weather :/ Between baking and designing, these little guys made me smile.I am in the proscess of making a hat, but until its complete and ready to go I will share this. Here is a amigurumi to make you smile and keep your hands busy. I would say this is one of my favorite I made so far. I made as a suprise for someone special. I made a rabbit and a bear. The rabbit my sister and Bear I will name Burak the bear ;) You can make these little guys as personal as you like. Make them of someone you like or you! have fun with it. Change the color of the suit or hair and the details you use.




♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Snow Suit Animal Amigurumi ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

You will need:

Size E# crochet hook

Fingering weight yarn; in bright colors I used Blue and yellow for the suite and cream for the body and black for the hair and light brown.
5 or 6 mm black beads for eyes you will need 2 per ami :D

Fiber-fill (great idea use old pillows and open them up and use the stuffing)

Sewing needle (sew body parts and eyes and details on)

Bow (i used blue, yellow and mint)

Safety pin (I used as stitch marker)

Head

R1) Ch 2, work 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook, join with a sl st, = 6 sc
R2) Work 2 sc in every st around = 12 sc
R3) Sc in the next sc, work 2 sc in the next st, rep around = 18 sc
R4) Sc in the next 2 sts, work 2 sc in the next st, rep around = 24 sc
R5-10) Wprk even in sc = 24 sc
R11) sc in the next 2 sc, dec 1 sc rep around = 18 sc

I find it easier to stuff the head half way and sew on eyes. Now finishing head.

R12) Sc, dec 1 sc repeat around = 12 sc finish stuffing head.
R13) Skip 1 sc, sc in the next sc, repeat around = 6 sc
FO (Fasten off) weave in tail (you will not need to leave a tail for sewing cause the head with pop in the hat.

sew hair on the head, making llong stitches, tipL: dont new hair all around just enough to see. Cause the hat will cover most of head. Have fun picking the hair color ;)

R2) Work 2 sc in every st around = 12 sc
R3) Sc in the next st, work 2 sc in the next st, rep around = 18 sc
R4) Wroking in the back loops only, sc around. = 18 sc
R5-15) Sc around = 18 sc

Stuff the body, you can sew buttons to body (optional)

Arm (make 2)

R1) With color of body; Ch 2, work 6 sc in the 2nd ch from hook. = 6 sc

  4. Dear Jemima,

    Thank you so much for this wonderful pattern! I made few of these for my friends as a gift (here is a picture of them: http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a356/Kitiza/three_friends_s.png).
    I was wondering if I could translate this pattern into Finnish in my blog? I would of course link back to this article and give you all the credit for the pattern. Would this be OK with you?

    Kind regards,
    Kati
