Patterns to Remember the Notorious RBG

I live in Canada, but I know that many people around the world are feeling the loss of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. We’re thinking of you down there, USA. If you’re sad and don’t know what to do, maybe commemorating the life of RBG with some thoughtful crafting time is the way to go. Regardless, there are some pretty fun craft patterns out there that are worth considering to remember and carry on the legacy of this fine woman.

Crocheted Creatures

As the weather warms and we venture outside more, the desire to sit under heavy sweaters and blankets passes and at the end of a day of gardening or spending time outside or renovating your bathroom (true story), sitting on the deck with a cold drink and a crochet hook to make some little stuffed creatures is just the sort of craft to keep your fingers busy in the evening. Amigurumi is a Japanese word for small stuffed, crocheted creatures. In its most limited meaning of the word, they are anthropomorphic and crocheted: think little cupcakes with faces. But in the more broad sense, it applies to knit and crocheted creatures, including dolls and stuffed animals. And I’ve had forest creatures on my mind today as I was sharing a story how we dealt with bears at camp with my youngest son this morning. So I’ve collected a bunch of adorable crocheted creature patterns for you to choose from to keep yourself busy this spring.

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

So naturally, since it was bears that inspired this pattern round up, the first amigurumi creature I have for you is this 3-in-1 Teddy Bear Crochet Pattern. The 3-in-1 part means that there are also 2 other options included in this pattern: options to change the pattern in order to make a bunny and a cat. So cute! And this fuzzy plush yarn works up quickly and makes a super soft and cuddly toy any child will love! (Also: yellow bear! So cute!)

While bears are an obvious choice for a handmade stuffed toy, why don’t you try something a little unique, like this Amigurumi Shrew Crochet Pattern? Don’t you love its long snout and little ears? And what shrew is complete without a little sweater? Absolutely adorable. It’s so fun to make and give handmade amigurumi gifts and for the recipients to have a toy made just for them that no one else one just like it.

My exploration into crocheted creatures for you was not limited to just land animals. Hue the Manatee Amigurumi Pattern is an adorable crochet pattern. If you check out the pattern, you’ll see that you don’t just have to make this Manatee in a traditional grey, but you can use a striping yarn or other bright colours to make this sweet, easy to follow pattern in whatever custom colour you choose!

We’re still loving alpacas, right? Alicia the Alpaca Amigurumi Pattern is an adorable, fuzzy crocheted stuffed animal that will make anyone smile, with her colourful, little pannier blanket, she would make a great handmade gift for a loved one.

Do hamsters live in the wild? You know I saw this super cute Hamster Crochet Pattern and thought it also looked like a full-cheeked chipmunk! So adorable and cartoonish, don’t you agree? One of these little guys would be a cute project to work on while camping and to keep in your trailer as a cuddly little trailer guest (who won’t eat through your pantry!).

I thought this Little Hamster Crochet Pattern resembled the pet hamsters that so many kids had or elementary school classes passed around for kids to take home. I was never in a class that had a class pet, so maybe that was just on television or by the time I was a kid they realized how traumatic it was for a creature to be passed around to different children. My eldest did bring home the class fish for a week or something. We thankfully didn’t kill it, but I think fish would probably prefer to stay in one place too.

Another under-represented stuffed animal is the badger. But you can make your own unique stuffed toy with this Bradley the Badger Amigurumi Crochet Pattern. Isn’t he adorable? I love his stripey black mask and his fuzzy coat.

Check out this adorable Leia the Turtle Amigurumi Crochet Pattern. Turtles make such adorable stuffed animals and while many kids seem to want a turtle as a pet, they’re not the easiest pet to keep. This little turtle would be super easy to keep and is just my speed as far as pets go. Her little shell is removable and has a cute little ties to fasten it on

If you like desert animals, check out this 4-in-1 Desert Creatures Amigurumi Patterns. It’s a bundle of patterns from Loopy Pattern and all her pattern bundles are 40% cheaper than buying the patterns separately. If you like a designer and their pattern style, buying a bundle of patterns is a great way to save a little money. And check out those adorable little creatures! This awesome bundle gets you an owl, a chameleon, a meerkat and a fennec (which is an African fox). What a fun and adorable bundle of creatures to make!

Here’s another unique toy to make: this Lemur Amigurumi Crochet Pattern also from Loopy Pattern is so adorable with his long slender striped tail. Lemurs gained a great deal of popularity after the Disney movie Madagascar was released. This sweet little stuffed toy would like to “move it, move it” along with a fun kid friend!

I know sheep are not exactly forest animals, but when I found this Bobble Sheep Amigurumi Crochet Pattern, it made me think of the New Zealand sheep, Shrek who escaped shearing for 6 years. When he was finally found and sheared, his fleece weighed in at more than 60 lbs! This little bobbly stuffed sheep will certainly not weigh 60 lbs, but he will certainly sit contentedly on your bed or couch as a fun conversation piece.

If you’ve never tried crocheting an amigurumi stuffed toy, it’s a great time to try it out! It’s such a fun and satisfying area of the craft of crocheting. Many patterns often work up quickly, so they make great last minute handmade gift ideas for young and old alike! Pick up one of these cute patterns today or pin it for later so you don’t forget!

The Good News of Bread

Ok, so I know I’m a little late to the party here and this is not very knit- and crochet-related, but I received a sourdough starter from a friend of mine this week and I’ve been all about that bread. On the first day of baking, I watched a video about making designs in your sourdough (because if you’re not making your bread pretty, what are you even doing with your life?). And I got a great old starter (apparently, it’s 18 years old–as old as my marriage!) and it made beautiful bread right away, even though I used water straight from the tap and didn’t get super fancy with directions and kneading technique or anything like that. … oh, but I have plans. I love to learn and research and I love to get better and better! And of course, with any new craft, there are supplies and resources… and I’m all about that.

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

So, let me show you my beautiful bread, first!

This was my first attempt. Not so bad if I do say so myself. And I just used a regular old plain (but sharp) kitchen knife to make my scores.

So, after watching the sourdough design video, I wanted a bread lame (a little tool for scoring the dough). Of course, I checked Etsy because I love their unique items and supporting small independent artisans. And I found this beautiful Bread lame with leather pouch. I like how small it is and I love that it comes with a leather pouch to store it in (that blade is SHARP!) And they offer free shipping!

Here’s another small bread lame, beautifully carved from Wire Monkey Shop. I like the idea of these smaller bread lames because it seems pretty easy to handle and have good control over.

Of course, there’s always a more traditional bread lame with a handle, which also looks quite nice. And this photo gives you a little glimpse into how it is to be used. Decisions, decisions. Which one would you choose?

So far I’m still just using the knife, but I managed to make this beauty on my second try. I’ve been baking my sourdough in my Staub Dutch Oven. It’s soooo gorgeous: I love it! I bought this when I started thinking about what would happen when I was dead and my kids would have to clean up all my stuff and I thought, “I want to have things that they’ll fight over.” Now, my kids don’t really fight so much, so I can’t really see this being a bad fight, but like, what I really didn’t want was my kids sighing and opening my cupboards and saying, “ew… what are we going to do with this? Does anyone want this?” So, you’d better not do that to my Staub, kids, ya hear?

I think the next thing I need is a Bread Proofing basket! This would be a way that my bread could keep its shape while it proofs (proves?). And then maybe I could make my loaves on my pizza stone!

Another handy tool that I’ve been eyeing up is a Pure Flax Linen Baker’s Couche, also known as a proofing cloth. We’ve been watching a lot of the Great British Baking Show and the Great Canadian Baking Show and this kind of proofing cloth has made an appearance to separate baguettes as they’re proofing. I tried to put a loaf in a bowl with a tea towel–and let me just say, I really didn’t know what I was doing– and I ended up with a whole lot of dough sticking to that tea towel! So, I think I might need the proper tool!

I think I’m also gonna need one of these linen bread bags. Apparently they’re the answer to storing sourdough bread (probably most breads). And I mean, it’s not like we really ever have any of this bread left over, but maybe one day we might… you never know. As this post says, “Linen bags are the perfect way to store bread because they are breathable, yet tightly closed.”

Yesterday’s bread got a little dark because I forgot to turn down the heat for the last 2/3 of the bake, but it was still definitely edible and very beautiful! Imagine what I’ll be able to do when I get a proper bread lame? Don’t you just want to get started on this gorgeous looking bread? Don’t have any starter? If you’re in Edmonton, get in touch with me and I’ll hook you up! Otherwise, you can buy one from a seller on Etsy (isn’t that crazy? But awesome!). Of course, you can make your own starter with these instructions!

Visual learner? Need some further instructions on sourdough? I’m definitely not an expert, but you can learn how with this great online sourdough class!

Would this really be a post by me if it didn’t include something you could knit or crochet? I don’t think so! When you’re obsessed with bread, you need a friend who is equally obsessed. And let’s just say that Manolete Mollet is that friend! This would be the perfect gift for your sourdough obsessed friend. He would sit there, encouraging you on to bread and good works! I love his big moustache!

And of course, as we become obsessed with a new passion, our kids start to notice and our kids love to mimic us. So, they can play along with amigurumi bread options! Crochet up a loaf of rye bread and some slices for your little one to play with!

And, if you’re going to have bread, you might as well slather it with avocado by making one of these You’re the Avocado to my Toast crochet patterns! I love little amigurumis like this! They’re so delightful and fun to look at and play with! I bet you could even make one out of cotton and use it as a little scrubby in your kitchen! How much fun would that be?!

But if your little one wants their bread to look a little more like the glorious sourdough breads you’re making, you can make them this bread bowl pattern (Also comes with clam chowder)! So much fun!

I hope you enjoyed this collection of bread-making supplies (and crochet patterns!) and sharing my bread obsession with you all. Go grab yourself some supplies and let’s get baking together! I skipped bread making today so I could grow my starter enough to make some glorious sourdough cinnamon buns for tomorrow! Pin it for later if you’re not ready to start today!

Cuddly Creatures

I’m sure we could all use a little extra comfort right now. A crocheted (or knit!) cuddly creature is the perfect thing to make to get a feeling of accomplishment with only a few hours of work (well, depending on the pattern). Smaller amigurumis (crocheted stuffed toys) can come together in one to three hours. It’s so fun to watch your yarn turn into a cuddly little friend. What better gift to give to your child or grandchild than a handmade stuffed toy for a little bit of extra comfort? Check out these adorable amigurumi patterns to make! (There’s even a couple of knitting patterns in here!)

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

How about these Beep & Boop the Robot Twins? If you’re just getting started with amigurumi, this is a very easy crochet pattern that is only 11 pages long and includes plenty of step-by-step photos to help you along the way.

If robots aren’t quite cuddly enough for you, check out this Cuddle-Sized Teddy Bear Amigurumi Crochet Pattern. Tristan the Teddy Bear is the perfect little classic teddy bear amigurumi pattern, also a very easy pattern to follow with plenty of helpful step-by-step photos. Storyland Amis has plenty of other fabulous amigurumi patterns worth spending your time on! Go take a look for a wide assortment of adorable amigurumi creatures.

If you’re looking for a stuffed animal pattern that is a little bit less conventional, but just as adorable, check out this Plush Baby Bull Pattern. This sample is made with a plush velvet yarn, which looks so cozy! Anyone would love to snuggle up to this adorable little bull!

Of course, with Easter only a couple of weeks away, this Plush Bunny in Dress Crochet Pattern is here just in time for Easter gift-giving. You’ll have to get on it though! Look at how sweet this adorable Easter bunny is. What a sweet gift idea!

Speaking of bunnies, the pattern shown above Penelope Bunny in Granny Square Dress and hat. The Granny Square Dress and hat and shoes are a separate pattern (that fits a few of her dolls, so the Penelope Bunny would have to be purchased separately. Carmen Rent is also another prolific amigurumi designer with plenty of fantastic doll patterns to explore.

One of my favourite amigurumi designers, Manuska, has created this beautiful Maya Angelou Crochet Doll Pattern, celebrating a strong and accomplished woman. What a lovely way to introduce a young woman to this excellent female role model!

Of course, if you’re all about the animals, this Pug Shpuntic Dog Amigurumi Crochet Pattern is a hilarious, cartoony amigurumi pattern that you simply must try! I love all his folds and crazy eyes!

If you’ve stumbled on this post with not much time until Easter, this Charlie the Chick Crochet Pattern is a small pattern that works up quickly with a small amount of yarn. If you’re looking for a free version, it’s available here on the Yarn Society website.

For a different style of bird pattern, check out the Blu the Bird Amigurumi Crochet Pattern. Such a cute little birdie pattern. It’s also available for free on the Yarn Society website by clicking here.

For my knitters, I haven’t forgotten about you! It’s just not as easy to find cute knitted toys. The visibility of increases and decreases in knitting just doesn’t lend itself as well to amigurumi. But these Moss the Sheep Knitting Patterns are an exception! Fluff and Fuzz has quite a few adorable amigurumi knitting patterns, so if you’re not interested in learning crochet, check out the great variety of knitting patterns in the Fluff and Fuzz shop.

This one was another favourite from Fluff & Fuzz, the Berry Bear knitting pattern. In this fuzzy yarn, you can’t tell it’s knit at all! It looks so good! My kids would love one of these adorable scruffy-looking stuffed bears.

I know that some of you may have difficulty getting out to get supplies if you’re either quarantined or social distancing or if stores have temporarily closed in your area. Most online retailers continue to ship and in my city, Michaels is still offering curbside pick up. It’s not quite the same as making a trip into a store and squishing all the yarn, but Knitpicks and Lionbrand Yarn have a wide selection of yarn and other supplies that you can order and have shipped to you if you need some supplies to make these cute amigurumi toys.

Which of these adorable amigurumis will you get to work on today? Pick up a pattern or pin it for later!

Dolls for International Women’s Day

So, it has passed, but only just! But Happy International Women’s Day! You know, there are definitely some downsides to being a woman, but there are a lot of fun things, too. So, yes, let’s advocate for equal pay for equal work, let’s smash the patriarchy, let’s bury misogyny, but let’s also celebrate our beautiful bodies that are worthy of emulating in art! Let’s enjoy the fun colours and wardrobe options, let’s embrace women’s brains and beauty and take some pleasure in being women. Let’s celebrate with some wonderful amigurumi dolls!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

Let’s start with this adorable Mimi Doll with 2 Outfits Amigurumi Pattern. I love the flexibility of a pattern that comes with outfit options! Women can be girly girls or tomboys, wearing beanies and overalls or frilly dresses with flowers in their hair. Definitely a fun part of being a woman! And definitely a fun part of this versatile pattern!

This crazy-haired Amigurumi Doll stands on her own and is ready to ship if you don’t have time to make one, or you can pick up the Pattern Here.

Amigurumi for Christmas

I just love amigurumi! According to Wikipedia: Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small, stuffed yarn creatures. The word is a portmanteau of the Japanese words ami, meaning “crocheted or knitted”, and nuigurumi, meaning “stuffed doll”. And this time of year is the perfect time to make some. Amigurumi is perfect for Christmas, as gifts for children, as decorations for your home or tree, as gifts for co-workers. They work up pretty quickly and are really fun to make; you can also use up some of your odds and ends of yarn since they’re usually pretty small and you can customise their colours to whatever you have on hand! So many people are delighted by amigurumi, it makes the perfect whimsical addition to this festive season! Check out these adorable stuffed crocheted creatures and pick out a pattern to start working on today!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

How about this festive Little Christmas Deer Crochet Pattern? One pattern gives you all the instructions you need to make these little amigurumi deer dolls, with plenty of high-quality photos to walk you through it. Depending on the size of yarn you use, these little guys could be toys for kids or decorations for your tree!

How adorable are these gingerbread people? Again, here’s another pattern with instructions to make both tops: a Gingerbread Man and Girl Couple Amigurumi Pattern. How much fun would a set of these be for a newlywed couple for their first Christmas? They’re so sweet with all their decoration details!

I’m a sucker for gnomes! I love their big furry beards and festive hats on their squat, rotund bodies. Herbert the Christmas Gnome Amigurumi Pattern would make a great addition to my mantle (which is frankly looking a little sad this year… see my Instagram post about it). But I think this guy would spruce it right up!

Who can resist an adorable cartoon-ish Mr Santa Crochet Pattern? His cloud-like beard and little button eyes just draw you in. My kids were never really enamoured with Santa, and we never really forced them to sit on Santa’s knee because they always looked terrified of him. Besides, who wants to stand in line with kids for 20 minutes to traumatize your kids for an awful over-priced picture? My kids were slightly intrigued by the idea of the right jolly old elf, so I slightly regret not snapping a photo of them looking onto the spectacle of Santa visiting from a distance. I’m sure they would have been much more interested in a stuffed version of Santa like this cute little amigurumi doll.

Mr Pinny Crochet Amigurumi Pattern is a super cute, sweater-clad penguin doll ready to grace your Christmas tree with his chipper little face! It’s time for all the cold-weather creatures to come out and adorn our homes with their cuteness! I don’t know, though; do you think this little guy could use a hat? Or a scarf? He looks a little chilly. I think I’d make him a hat, too.

Of course, you don’t need to make Christmas themed Amigurumi to give out as a gift! You can make a stuffed toy that can be enjoyed year-round, like this Milo the Hipster Cat Amigurumi Pattern. What kid doesn’t want a stuffed cat in a hoodie? My kids love this kind of stuff and I’m sure yours would too!

Or if you have a princess-lover on your hands, this Princess Amigurumi Crochet Pattern Bundle would give you all the instructions you need to make a whole collection of princesses! These dolls are so adorable; how much more special will one of these dolls be to the recipient when they know it was made by your loving hands? That’s the beauty of handmade; so much pride involved in making and so much love felt in giving and receiving!

If you’re new to amigurumi, you could try something a little simpler, like this Crochet Star Amigurumi Pattern. Festive for the holiday season, but suitable to be displayed year-round. Make one with a thick, bulky yarn and you’d have a super fun pillow for a teen. It gets harder and harder to come up with good fun handmade gift ideas for teens as they get older. This would be a suitable option for an older kid and would make a fun addition to their bed.

Do you want a hippopotamus for Christmas? You can make one with this Crochet Hippo Amigurumi Pattern! This cuddly hippo would double as a super fun and functional pillow. Made with a big enough yarn, this friendly character would crochet up quickly and make a really snuggly stuffed friend for any kid. All this hippo needs is a cute little bow and to be displayed under the tree!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little introduction to various amigurumi characters you could make this Christmas. You’ve still got some time, so go pick up a pattern and get to work! What better things do you have to do as the weather turns colder than sit cosied up at home with your crocheting? Grab a pattern or pin it for later!

Cute & Creepy Crocheted Creatures

As Halloween approaches, I’m finding more and more adorable and creepy crochet patterns for disturbing little toys. I’m especially enjoying various zombie dolls with creative appliques and embroidery all over their bodies. If you have a Halloween-lover in your life or an older kid that just isn’t in to cute things anymore, I have got some handmade toys for you to make! Check out these great patterns!

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

Frankie the Zombie Teddy Bear is an adorably terrifying little stuffed toy to make any kid react with both affection and disgust. I love the patchwork and stitches all through the doll. So creative!

This Zombie Unicorn is a great Halloween-themed stuffed toy crochet pattern with crazy, bugged-out eyes and mesmerizing lollipop accessories. I love the yellow that dsMouseBears chose for this sample; it’s so creepy!

Amigurumi Zombirina is a fun choice for a little ballerina who loves creepy and cute things! I love her crazy hair! The pattern is available in both Spanish and English and is pretty small, designed with a 2.00 mm hook, but you could make her with any size yarn you’d like! That’s the great thing about dolls… as long as your gauge is consistent, it doesn’t really matter if you’re making it in the size written.

This Zombie Boy pattern is also a super fun pattern with large buck teeth and buggy eyes, he’s the perfect pattern to make when one of your favourite kids has requested a zombie stuffie!

This cute little Flap the Bat Amigurumi Crochet Pattern is a little less on the creepy side and a little more on the adorable side, especially with his rosy little cheeks!

This happy little Voodoo Doll crochet pattern would make a super fun pincushion, don’t you think?! We don’t all need little tomatoes to hold our pins, right? Why not a voodoo doll?!

This adorable Skeleton Teddy Bear is another loveable, but creepy looking stuffed animal by Krawka which is perfect for Halloween. How fun would it be to adorn your house with some creepy little stuffed animals as decorations?

Here’s a crocheted version of the Zombie from Plants vs Zombies, so if you have a gamer in your life who loves Plants vs Zombies, this little character would make a perfect creepy gift!

If you’re new to amigurumi but are interested in trying your hand at one of these crocheted stuffed toy patterns, you could start with this Zombie Pattern which has an easy step-by-step tutorial how to crochet Zombie doll. It includes 34 pictures and 12 pages of detailed instructions to walk you through it.

You can’t talk about creepy and cute characters without Jack Skellington! My eldest loves the Nightmare Before Christmas. This little doll here is a finished product and I couldn’t find a pattern for it, though he’s pretty similarly shaped to the Zombie above, that you could probably get a reasonable facsimile if you made a few changes.

I did find this Jack Skellington as Santa crochet pattern, which I think my kid would really love. It might make a super fun Christmas gift (secrets, please! Don’t spill the beans to my kid!).

What do you think? Do you have someone in your life who would appreciate one of these creepy and cute amigurumi characters? They’re perfect for Halloween or for anyone who has an appreciation for slightly more sinister stuffed toys! Pick up your favourite pattern today or pin it for later!

If you’re looking for something a little smaller, this proud-looking Zodiac Egg dragon crochet pattern is colourful and stately! What a fun looking amigurumi dragon pattern from Little Bamboo Handmade!

While he’s not really a dragon, this super sweet Kyo the Baby Triceratops should definitely be included in these cute dragon amigurumi crochet patterns. Aren’t the mythical dragon creatures based off of dinosaurs anyway? Who doesn’t love a triceratops? Especially babies.

And while we’re on things that we don’t typically think of when we’re talking crocheted stuffed dragon patterns, there’s this super fun and realistic-looking Bearded Dragon amigurumi pattern. This would be a fun gift to make for a child and a good compromise for a kid who wants a new pet, but the parents do not! Amigurumis make the best pets because you never have to feed them or clean up after them and they never get sick or die. Who could ask for a better pet?

Can we really have a round-up of dragon patterns that doesn’t include a Toothless Amigurumi Pattern from How to Train Your Dragon? There are plenty of kids would be delighted to get a stuffed amigurumi dragon like this one!

Spring Patterns

Is it spring yet? It has felt like a very long winter here. We had the coldest February in 40 years here in my city, and judging from the posts on social media, it sounds like it’s been pretty similar all over North America. I’m looking forward to spring… anyone else? Let’s take a look at some lovely spring-inspired patterns to help melt away the snow and get us excited for the upcoming (warmer!?) season.

*Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on them and buy something, you don’t pay any extra, but I may get a small commission.*

Spring is the perfect time to wear t-shirts! And make them, too! Try this Easy Knit Tee Knitting Pattern for a simple, but gorgeous knitted t-shirt pattern!

Spring is also a great time to make and wear a poncho! You know you want a poncho! Check out this fantastic Crochet Ava Fringed Poncho Pattern by Sewrella for an easy level crochet pattern. It would make a perfect first garment project because you wouldn’t have to be as concerned about getting a perfect fit as the look is more relaxed!

For the sunny Spring days ahead, this Crochet June Sun Hat Pattern is another easy and adorable crochet pattern by Sewrella.

To make that hat even more spring-y you could add some spring to it or any decor or garment; check out this Floral Fantasy Collection of sweet flower appliques by The Hat and I. I love the idea of turning a bunch of these flower appliques into a piece of feature art! Gorgeous!

Not just for decor, flower appliques can make adorable headbands! Get this pattern bundle including 6 headband patterns and 3 flower patterns from Two Girls Patterns.

I think handbags are for all seasons, but something about boho style just screams warmer weather. Start working on one of these Boho Flower Slouch Bags and you’ll be all ready for the beach or festivals this summer!

If spring is just taking far too long to bring forth the flowers from the ground, you can make your own that never die! Check out this adorable amigurumi pattern for these Moles with daffodils! How cute are they?!

Lastly, I couldn’t help but bring you this super adorable spring skunk pattern! Why are you not making one yet?! So sweet! I love the detail of her sparkling eyes and cute flower appliques! This would make a treasured gift!

So, after you catch up on your sleep from time-warping an hour into the future, go grab yourself one of these fantastic patterns and start making for spring today! Or pin it for later so you don’t forget.

Eight great knit and crochet patterns to encourage spring to hurry up and get here! I love the adorable daffodils and moles amigurumi pattern!
