1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Amigurumi Pumpkins on: October 22, 2008 07:56:40 PM
These are the newest additions to my amigurumi collection. I love Halloween and specially orange and black, they just look so perfect together. So for Halloween decor I have made these cute little pumpkins, 2 realistic ones and one amigurumi. They were pretty easy to make and the best thing is they wont go bad hehe.


Both patterns can be found free online, and can be easily modified to make bigger sized pumpkins.

Realistic (thanks to FleshEatingBunny) http://www.flesheatingbunny.com/?page_id=40 (there is a cute ghost on this site as well)
Amigurumi (thanks PlanetJune) http://www.planetjune.com/blog/free-crochet-patterns/pumpkin

Happy Halloween! Smiley

These are so darn cute! They look so adorable and delicate, I have a 6 month old baby sister and would love to make her one just like these for her baptism. Could you share the pattern please or basic instructions  Smiley?

How about a swap where you sent out souvenirs from your country, as if the swap partner had come to visit. It be like cool for international craftsters, and US a like, one could send out cute national symbols, crafts, candies, kitschy stuff, it be like getting souvenirs without the travel...just an idea...

Hi all! Ive been kinda busy, so these are my latest creations, straight out of my awesome new book i got a week ago, Amigurumi collection, seemed everyone finds these hard to make, i find them way easy, just takes some C.S. to find out what goes where. Ok enough yapping here they are:

twins

brown sugar


they're made from 100% cotton, except the top one i used different color yarn for the limbs.

Hope yall like.

*Edit. Finally a tutorial, pretty easy, any questions ill be happy to help.
PS: please excuse my nails, been crafting and no time for polish.

For the teddy you will need at least 2 different colors, I choose brown and white, embroidery floss for the details and to big eyes 9mm.
Make sure you use a thinner tread for the snout if not youll end up with a bulky nose.

Rnd1: 6sc in loop
Rnd2: sc-inc in each sc (12)

Rnd14:[sc-dec, 2 sc] x 6 (18)
Rnd15:[sc-dec, 1 sc] x 6 (12)
Finish off, leave enough yarn to attach to body (aprox 6in.)

Loop Instructions
First loop the yarn over your finger as shown.


2. Pinch it together and get it off your finger carefully.



3. Now pass the neadle through the loop and chain once. Keep sc as needed into the loop.


4.Now comes the trick part. Take the right end of the back loop (you have 2, front and back), and pull to close the front one tight. Then take the left end and pull on it until you close the back loop.
