When I think of making in the summer time, I think about not wanting to sit under the heat of a heavy sweater or blanket as I work. I think of projects that travel easily, finish quickly, have a quick pay off. And little dolls are just the thing. I love amigurumis and I know many of you do, too. So check out these adorable crochet patterns and pick up one and bust some of your stash this summer while crocheting outside or while travelling.
