Yarny Monsters Pattern and Video

I love my yarny monsters!

These have been an absolute joy to design. Most of the design came from a drawing my daughter did a few years ago. I wrote up a blog post about it here  I think the first time I made this guy his head was a bit too small and the smile was wrong but with a few minor tweaks I'm pretty happy with the look now. What a difference small details like the color of felt can make!

Now a big thank you to my wonderful and creative daughter who is to credit for the design, I just yarnified everything. I love you Gracie, you make me smile :)

I put together a video tutorial as well so you'll have lots of help getting your monster made. Please read the supplies list as well as the *read me* sections on

Got A Little Wild With Yarn Last Night

I was crocheting last night and I got a little wild!

He's got a bunch of pins in him and his eyes and teeth haven't been glued on yet but I'm just too excited to keep him to myself!

If you follow me on facebook then you would have seen my next pattern to be released which is an amigurumified version of  a drawing my daughter did. If you missed it, check it out here

Anyway, a member of my facebook page commented that the monster reminded her of the Wild Things so once I read that it kept swirling around in my head and one thing led to another and wa la!
I used the exact same pattern as the monster (not released yet) and just added a different tail/eyes/and a furry head and of course did the shirt in 2 colors. And I'm in love!
Thanks Katie (the lady who commented) and thanks to my daughter for the drawing!
Like I said in my previous post, keep watching 'cuz you never know what monsters you'll find lurking here. And yes, there will absolutely be a pattern. I have to get the monster pattern up first. This one will be a separate pattern since it requires a bunch of different steps. I can't say when it will be ready.. it might be later in September since I have so many other things going on in my life at the moment. I probably shouldn't have posted him yet, lol but I love him so much I wanted you to see too!

Thanks for stopping by and come back soon :)

Monster Tucked Away

Little monster tucked away,

I just crocheted him tonight after a 3 week break from crocheting anything. I can't believe it's been that long since I've played with yarn but I have 2 good excuses. The 1st being I burned my thumb with a glue gun while working on a dollhouse project for my other blog .  I didn't realize that it was a 2nd degree burn and within 2 days infection had set in but I thought I could just keep it clean and it would heal eventually. I had no idea what I was dealing with. It turned out to be an aggressive

Super Mario Bros Crochet Pattern Free

Mario and Luigi, oh my what memories!

This pair I crocheted way back when I was just learning. I used a free pattern by the Golden JellyBean on youtube. At that time she had only Mario's pattern available so I just used different colors to make Luigi, he should be bigger and have a different mustache but hey, I was a newbie!  But since then she has added Luigi's pattern as well. Here's a link to her site, just scroll through the photos and click on them to get to the patterns. She's got quite a few awesome gaming dolls available there so be sure to check them all out!

I made these guys as a gift for my younger brother who I spent many hours playing Super Nintendo with... so many wonderful memories we share with the game. So when he opened his gift and saw these dolls he was really thrilled. I made them wooden stands too so they display nicely on his shelf. I was so proud of those dolls and my heart could have just burst with happiness that I was able to make them and get video help too! Thanks Nikki, you rock!!

Amigurumi Woodland Animal Patterns Free

Woodland animals,

Here's a set of free woodland animal patterns all available here on Amigurumi To Go. I designed them all last year. I get messages from time to time asking about these three in particular so I thought it would be great to gather up the pattern links to them and then I can link you all up with one easy post!

None of these have a video tutorial and my apologies for that! I have them on the to do list though and sometime in the future each one will get a video tutorial.


  1. Bandit the Raccoon
  2. Beaver
  3. Adorable Mister Fox

Panda Amigurumi Free Pattern

Little Bigfoot Panda has been born, yay!

This pattern has a video to go with it but due to a time crunch I did a partial video only. In the video I show how to do color changes, how to stuff the head and close up the body. I also show how to sew on the muzzle, eye patches and give options for different eyes. And how to sew on all the other parts. Sometime in October if all

Coraline Wybie Wuss Puss and Ghost Child Patterns

Gathering up all my Coraline pattern links,

One of the first dolls I crocheted that was of my own design was Coraline, then Wybie, then Wuss Puss and even the Ghost child! Wow, that's dating back to 2011.. I can not believe how fast time flies by!

Anyway, this year I revised all of those written patterns and gave each one a full video tutorial except for the Ghost child, I still have to revise her pattern. I'm not sure if I'll get to her this year but she would be a great doll for Halloween for sure.

Here she is from 2011. I need to get better photos of her too!
                      her free pattern is here, but keep in mind it will be revised one day

Then there's Coraline.. I also made Caroline just to see how she'd look in different

Bunny With Glasses

Just stopping by with a little amigurumi love and an update,

I was putting something away in my room and I saw this cute little guy with his glasses on and I thought I'd post him up for you all to see and at the same time update you on where I've been :)

I've been real busy the last little while with a dollhouse project (and other things of course) and every spare moment I've been getting has been going into this dollhouse . Today I have to finish up just a few things on the house then I will take

Oh, Fat Einstein! Where Are You?

Hello Dear Friends!

Today I just want to address something that has been bothering me and it's not you it's me! Over the last few years I have come out with many patterns and I post them up with all excitement and the greatest hopes they will be loved and enjoyed.. this is my hope still :)

And from time to time in between these patterns I will come up with an extra idea or a thought that I get really excited about and of course I want to share
