For those of you following my #lockdownamichallenge to see how many of #mycrochetchums I can design and make from the Aldi Amigurumi Yarn box - here's the latest, fresh off the hook - my rainbow inspired Hedgehog!
He's a quick and easy make, using basic ami techniques and great for using up odds and ends of yarn.
If you'd like to make him you can find the free amigurumi pattern HERE.
Great excitement here at #mycrochetchums HQ - meet Claude the Cosy Fox - Cover Boy on the latest issue of Crochet Now!
This is the second pattern I've designed for Crochet Now - huge thanks to Jenny the Editor - she took a chance on me when I was a completely unpublished designer. It gave me enough confidence in my work to start this web site.
I was a big fan of Crochet Now even before I designed for them - it's always an interesting read, a great way to keep up with news of new yarn and books, there's loads of great varied patterns, giveaways and discounts and fab free gifts - this issue comes with an Amigurumi Pattern book and a Stitch Counter.
Claude the Cosy Fox is a pattern suited to intermediate crocheters - with some experience of crocheting amigurumi style in a continuous spiral. Full instructions are given on how to create the cable on his jumper. He's made with Scheepjes Catona 4 ply - a mercerised cotton yarn that's great for ami as it gives well defined stitches. His jumper and striped hat are removable.
Whatever's on your hook today, Happy Crocheting!
