Ok, for the ones that haven't been introduced to the little fellows, acording to Wikipedia, it is literally, a knitted stuffed toy, although lately it is more popular to find them crocheted! there are many flickr groups depicting them, and Ravelry groups as well!!
I wanted to make something small-ish but cute, and I came across this little sweetie... I knew I just had to make it!
(dont know why this paragraphs came out underlined)
"yeah, I make them and mom takes all the credit...!"
It looks kind of weird... promise it is gonna look nice!
And here is the little one! I still have to give her a name, so I'm gonna ask you all to put in your two cents and help me name her!!!! (sorry about the ligth, I took the photos with my phone)
Many hookers are making these cute toys, and some people even collect them. And you can get hundreds of free patterns online if you want to dip your toes in the amigurumi waters without risking investing too much in patterns ! check out THIS blog.. i mean, really... crocheted poo?
