Hug Monster

I was looking for a quick amigurumi to do over the weekend and I found the Hug Monster by Linda Salant. It is a free pattern.I absolutely loved it and had to make it. It was very quick to make, so I made two!

With the purple Hug Monster I used the listed hook size of 4.25 mm but with the blue one I used a 3.75 mm. The stuffing didn't show through the holes as much using the smaller hook, so when I make more I will continue with the 3.75 mm or 3.5 mm.

I am not sure how much yarn it took to make these but it didn't take much, so if you have a small ball of yarn this is a great project to use it for. You could use a bunch of scraps and make it striped or just have a solid colored monster, there are so many possibilities!

Star Wars

As I'm sure many of you know, there is a new Star Wars movie coming out in December, so I decided to crochet the Death Star. I have seen this pattern by Pops de Milk on Pinterest and on Ravelry recently and we have talked about Star Wars at work so I decided to go ahead and make it! 

I used a smaller hook size then suggested in the pattern so mine came out quite a bit smaller than the one using the hook sized listed but I really like the size I ended up with. This didn't take me that long to make and the pattern isn't too hard to follow. The tricky part is figuring out how to do the lines on the outside of the sphere. Pops de Milk does have a video in the post showing you how she does the outside design. There are many more star wars patterns available online so I might try some of those too!

Amigurumi Witch!

I made this witch this past weekend. I didn't use a pattern and it didn't quite come out as I was picturing but I am still happy with the result! This was the first time I have done hair on amigurumi. I do love the look of it! Unfortunately the head is quite wobbly but I now have a better idea about how I want to try this again! I also was inspired by the witch pattern by Sayjai Amigurumi. I also used most of the pattern for the hat because I couldn't quite get it right myself.

I am on a roll with my projects lately! I made this little Baymax from the Disney movie "Big Hero 6", last night! It is a super easy to follow pattern that can be completed in a very short amount of time and it is absolutely adorable! It is also a free pattern which I love! If you want to make your own, here is the pattern. I used a hook size US E(3.5mm) and Caron One pound for the yarn. With that yarn it was a little stiff and when I make this again I think I will use a slightly larger hook!
