MsBlondie does Amigurumi




My first attempt at amigurumi. It was fun, but I used too fat of yarn (Lion Brand worsted), so it's kind of hole-y, and also turned out too big. I later read that the cheapest and finer gauge yarn works much better!

I'll definitely try some more of these toys.
Pattern is from the "Mini-doggie pattern" by Haakpoes, and mine isn't nearly as cute. Link to free pattern is:

Patons V-Neck Vest on Models


Here is my cute mum in the vest, which fit her much better than me. It might be a little itchy, but she said with the turtleneck underneath it was okay.
