My littlest little boy loves Ni Hao, Kai-Lan!  The others really do NOT like it Smiley  Can you tell we watch a lot of Nick Jr and Noggin over here?!  I thought the characters would be perfect for amigurumi.  Made her last night/this morning.  Hope you all like her!!!!  







Thought I'd add an easy pattern for Mr. Sun!  He takes all of 10 minutes to make if you're quick!

Supplies:
Yellow yarn (I LOVE the yarn from Hobby Lobby---"I Love This Yarn" ironically Smiley )
Black felt
Red embroidery floss
stuffing
E Hook
needle

R1: Work 2sc into each st (12)
R2: (2sc into next st, sc into next st)* rep to end of round (18)
R3: (2sc into next st, sc into next 2 st)* rep to end of round (24)
R4: (2sc into next st, sc into next 3 st)* rep to end of round (30)
R5: (2sc into next st, sc into next 4 st)* rep to end of round (36)
R6: (2sc into next st, sc into next 5 st)* rep to end of round (42)
R7-9: sc into each st (42)
R10: (sc2tog, sc into next 5 st)*  rep to end of round(36)
R11: (sc2tog, sc into next 4 st)* rep to end of round (30)
R12: (sc2tog, sc into next 3 st)* rep to end of round (24)
R13: sc2tog all the way around (12)
Take a moment now to stuff him firmly.
R14: sc2tog all the way around (6)
*Fasten off, leaving a long tail.  Use the tail to weave through last row of stitches.  Pull tight to close hole.

Cut two small circles from black felt and sew onto face.  Embroider mouth with red floss.  Use pink blush to make rosy cheeks.  Done!

Thanks guys!  I'm in the process of writing out the pattern.  When I make them I just draw and then scratch notes all over the place.  Interpreting it into something understandable takes several hours Smiley
I'd love to make them all!

OK Told you it would take a few hours Smiley  I did finish the pattern.  i hate that part!!!  I tried a few new things with this one.  I've never done vertical stripes before and I think if she was much bigger they would have twisted all around, but she's little.  Thanks again and let me know if you have any questions.

I think Yeh-yeh would be easy based on this pattern.  No hair on top, add some glasses, some different clothes, make him a little taller, that's all!  Maybe he'll be next.  or Mr. Sun---that would be really easy Smiley

o_0 This looks JUST like her!!! Amazing! My cousins are going to love this, we watch Ni-Hao Kai-Lan (we're between the ages of 13 and 25) ostensibly it's to learn Chinese but really it's because of the cute characters. Great job! Cheesy

I saw the Chinese in the title and got excited. I live in China, and I don't often see people trying to learn what is a very difficult language! The idea of a program for kids is amazing.

And, this is cute. I especially like the sun.

Your Kai-Lan is so cute I would so love to make her and the gang. I watch that show as well as my god kid's. I wish they had a show like this but they teach japanese. I have learned alot of chinese and trip out the chinese in the restuarant when I go in there. Mr. Sun is so cute my godkids love it when she tickles him.

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.
