I love this pattern, and these little guys are so fun and easy to crochet. I'm not a big crocheter of amigurumi items, but these were hard to resist. And talk about instant gratification! In less than an hour, you're done and have something to show for all the hard easy work.






The pattern is from the book Kooky Crochet. I changed up the eyes on a few of them from what the book suggested, and I added tufts of hair (fun fur) or bows to some of them. To see more about my versions, you can go to my blog post about them, but all the info you really need is in the book!

I just got that book this week! I've been thinking that I need to make them with Santa hats so I can hang them around the house as holiday decorations. Yours are really cute!

Ahw how cute. I made a few of them from the book too. I shortened the length of them b/c I wanted them small. I never posted any pics of them and a couple of them I put bells in them. I love yours with the the tufts of hair too cute.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.
