I found this community a few days ago, and just joined this morning. I did my first Amigurumi a week or so ago, and now I want to keep making them! What I love best (besides how cute they are) is that they work up so quickly - a few hours as opposed to a few weeks or months for a blanket. Instant gratification, lol!
My question - I have a friend who's very sick, and I'd like to make her a little something to make her smile. She really loves cows, so I thought I'd make her one. Problem is, I can't find a pattern ANYWHERE. I checked all the usual places I check for patterns (including the Lion website) but it seems like no one has anything about cows. Can anyone here point me in the right direction, or share a pattern if they have one? I'd be so very grateful.
And my first amigurumi. A little turtle for another friend, who's birthday is in a couple weeks. I used the free pattern on the Lion Brand website, but used Cotton Ease instead of the Vanna's Choice that the pattern suggests, and an E hook instead of a G. He's 6 1/2 inches from nose to tail, and 2 3/4 inches tall.( SheldonCollapse )
I'm so happy with the way it turned out, and so excited that I can't wait to give it to her, lol. I hope she likes it as much as I do.
