Amigurumi Christmas in November Album

My Amigurumi are Getting In The Christmas Spirit,

Look how adorable Little Bigfoot Monkey looks in his  new Christmas Hat & Scarf!

I actually never planned this. This is the hat & scarf set that I made for the Remember Me Bear. I was just getting ready to start filming the video tutorials for the bear and accessories when the thought came to me that maybe this set would fit the Little Bigfoot Monkey and wa la!

So I tried the set on a few others...
these are free patterns already available here on Amigurumi To Go! Click

Remember Me Christmas Bears

Remember Me Christmas Bears,

This pattern is for the hat and the scarf that will fit the Bears in this pattern. The only difference is these Christmas Bears were made with Red Heart Super Saver yarn and a 4.0 mm (G) hook. And leave off the toes.. or add them if you want to :)

Please note that there are no instructions for the snowflake on the red bear's foot. I used embroidery thread to do it. I looked for the easiest snowflake image online that I could find and did my best to make it look like that image. It was all trial and error. When I get the video tutorial filmed I'll show how I did it then.. it's hard to explain in written form. And you can always leave off the snowflake, it's optional.

Different Bear Same Pattern

I spent the last 2 nights getting the Remembrance Day Bears ready for posting which I managed to do and just in time! I posted the pattern at 5:30am this morning.. yes, I stayed up all night to get it done in time, haha it's a crazy amigurumi life! But I had a nap today so I feel refreshed :)
If you missed it, the new pattern is right here
Anyway, I want to show you that with the same pattern can make different bears... it's not just for Remembrance Day.  I've been working on the red and blue bears today.

There's no difference between this pattern and the Remembrance Day pattern, I made no changes at all except for the hook size. I made both the new ones with a

Little Remembrance Day Bear

This pattern is for the vest, the helmet and the poppy. I move the pattern  for the bear  here
Please note you must use the same weight yarn as the camouflage yarn to make the bear in order for the vest and helmet to fit the bear. Please read the supplies list and the "read me" sections for important pattern information.  Keep scrolling down this page for

Next Pattern to be Released

Hello friends,

I'm so pleased to tell you I will have a free pattern in time for this year's Remembrance Day! I didn't know if I could do it as once again my time is stretched thin but I worked every minute I could today and then into the evening and now here it is 3:30am and finally the little bear was born from a ball of camouflage yarn! And he's adorable :)

I will have no trouble falling asleep now but I think I might have a little trouble getting up in time to make breakfast for my children before school in just a few short hours, haha but I have to say it was well worth the loss of sleep tonight. I just love this little guy and I hope you will too!

I  also quickly tried to make a poppy.. I think it needed one for the photo but it's a little wonky so if I can't hammer out a good poppy pattern by the time I get the bear pattern ready for release I'll make sure to find a good easy one to follow from

Abominable Snow Monster Stop Animation

crochet white yeti monster

Bumble the Abominable Snowman,

He's not done but I've made quite a bit of progress since my last post about him. Today I got his face done. I started out with felt teeth but I thought those were too soft for the look I wanted so I gave him a set of polymer clay teeth instead.
Wow, those took me long time to do since I had to cut and shape each tooth, bake them and then glue each one in.
When I was done gluing his teeth in they seemed unfinished so I decided to give

Video The Unnamed Monster Pattern

where the wild things are homemade doll crochet

And the Unnamed Monster is here, finally! Now available in German courtesy of 
Melanie Wonka.

After a full day of youtube glitches the videos are uploaded and ready to view, yahoo!
I think youtube  is trying to strengthen my character or trying to bring out the monster in me. I swear if youtube would just upload a video without problems I might faint in disbelief! Anyway, lol it is done, whew!

The Unnamed Monster is ready for you to bring to life. You can give him a name or let whoever you make him for name him... or her :)
There is a full video tutorial, links below and the written pattern is down below with
