This month marks 3 years since I learned how to crochet and I still LOVE it! I’ve been experimenting a lot with different types of crochet styles but my all-time favourite is what I originally learned how to do…Amigurumi.
I purchased this pattern from “Bubbles and Bongo” on Etsy. You can find it here. The pattern was excellent! I learned something new too. On the hat, there’s “front and back post half double crochet” (ummm, what’s that you say?) I wasn’t sure either so like always, I looked it up on YouTube! You can find a video here.
The pattern included detailed instructions and I loved how I didn’t have to sew the legs on because it crocheted together as one piece.
I used Schachenmayr Catania Color Originals yarn #0218. It was a great yarn to work with however, next time I’ll use a smaller hook. I used 2.75mm – I’d like to try a 2.5mm or a 2mm hook with this yarn next time.
Overall, I love how it turned out.
Until next time,
