Amigurumi

Recently I have gotten addicted to crocheting animals. I found a few good books/booklets on the topic of amigurumi and located a lot of free ones in Ravelry. I crocheted up a few Wesley the elephants and then made up a ballerina elephant from one of the books. I know a lot of people like to knit up animals and toys, but I find the process of crocheting them to be more enjoyable. They go super fast and I find it very easy to seam them together without issue.


These books are both great and full of wonderful patterns. I've found most of the animals make up in an afternoon. Perfect for a baby gift or as a "bow" on the outside of a wrapped present.
