Crochet Toys Free Pattern



So ugly they are cute! Not a design I had planned on.. I say that a lot, haha but really they weren't on my brain until yesterday when I had found the cutest KNIT pattern called  Anything Animals by Petite Purls and posted it on my facebook page, Amigurumi Freely and I so wish I could knit so I could make them! And many other
people feel the same because I got quite a few messages asking if there was a crochet version. Now with that said, the animals by Petite Purls are so adorable and my crocheted version doesn't quite measure up to the adorable description by a long shot but after making these 2 last night I fell in love with their primitive look.

And primitive they are! The design is far from anything I know to be amigurumi design aside from the ears. I designed the first one just after midnight and it was probably the best time to do so because I was so tired that my brain didn't fight me when I was making amigurumi in the flat and not in the round, lol

I do plan to make a couple more characters and also a video tutorial. So check back soon and you too can make a few Ugly Amis!

UPDATE!! Pattern now available with video tutorial right here

Happy Weekend to you all ~

  2. I think these are sweet! And if they're fairly simple, they would be great starter projects for kids!

  3. I like crocheting flat better than in the round, so these look really fun! They really aren't ugly at all. :)
