Since the mouse I’ve been playing around with making crocheted amigurumi. Here is an octopus, a turtle, and a chick thing that I’ve made. The octopus is from Lion Brand Yarn‘s catalog of free patterns (http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/70588AD.html). You might need to register with Lion Brand’s site to view the pattern. The other two, the turtle and the chick are my own creations. The turtle is the first amigurumi I came up with. The design didn’t come out as I had hoped–I was looking for a more elongated shell. Once I figure out the technique, I’ll post the pattern. The chick, I think, came out pretty cute and the form looks like it will be fun to explore for other critters. I used Caron’s Simply Soft in light blue for the octopus and in lemonade and mango for the chick. The turtle was done using Bernat Satin Sport in taupe and Lion Brand Yarn Micro Spun in leaf.
