I’ve been having fun making some cute amigurumi creatures too.
For no reason whatsoever, I decided that I wanted to create a peach panda. No rhyme or reason for a peach panda, other than I wanted to use a bright, bright colour and cheer myself up whilst crocheting!
For much the same reason, I created this lovely multi-coloured elephant (pattern by Irene Strange) which uses a combination of a granny square technique and sc (as used in amigurumi). I don’t really think anyone needs a reason to crochet animals like this
Do others who make these animals also become attached to them once they are finished? I think they seem to get their character when it comes to finishing them up and sewing in those last ends.
No – just me then!
