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

candy

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.

Head

Rnd1: 6sc in loop
Rnd2: sc-inc in each sc (12)
Rnd3: [1 sc, 1 sc-inc]x 6 (18)
Rnd4: [2 sc, 1 sc-inc]x 6 (24)
Rnd5: [3 sc, 1 sc-inc]x 6 (30)
Rnd6: [4 sc, 1 sc-inc]x 6 (36)
Rnd7: [5 sc, 1 sc-inc]x 6 (42)
From Rnd8 to Rnd10: 42sc (complete 3 rows)
Rnd11:[sc-dec, 5 sc] x 6 (36)
Rnd12:[sc-dec, 4 sc] x 6 (30)
Rnd13:[sc-dec, 3 sc] x 6 (24)
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.)

Torso

Rnd1: 6sc in loop
Rnd2: sc-inc in each sc (12)
Rnd3 to Rnd 11: 12 sc
Finish off and tuck yarn into body.

Arms and legs (make 4)

Rnd1: 6sc in loop
Rnd2 to Rnd8: 6sc
Finish off, leave enough yarn to attach to body (aprox 4in.)

Ears

Rnd1: 6sc in loop
Rnd2: sc-inc in each sc (12)
Rnd3: [1 sc, 1 sc-inc]x 6 (18)
Rnd4: 18sc
Rnd5: 18sc
Finish off, leave enough yarn to attach to head (aprox 4in.)




Mouth

With white yarn

Rnd3: [1 sc, 1 sc-inc]x 6 (18)
Rnd4: 18sc

*Notes:

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.

I tried making one of the bears cause I thought they were so adorable. I kinda had to make do with what I had too. The yarn was a dark brown and I stuffed the bear with poly-fil. The eyes..hehe...I didnt have any so I had to think of a way to create then. I had some clay laying aroung and I shaped it like a round button with a flat bottom. I also made two holes in the back so that after it was done baking I could put a wire. I let them cool off after baking and took a paper clip and snipped the ends off that way I had a "U" shaped wire. I took some super glue and glued it into the holes. Now for the color. I took a black sharpey (perminent marker) and colored the entire eye(s). Then I got some nail polish with glitter that was clear and painted it on a couple times. Then at the very end put a top coat on. The nail stuff stinks but looks good! HEHE! And of course to finalize the animal I put a bow on top. It came out cute for the first one! Thank you nat_neko for sharing your creation and its pattern with us Wink
