Dust off your yarn and let's get playing![/size]
For those who are interested..."Ami" means knit/crochet in Japanese and "nuigurumi" means stuffed creature, so amigurumi is a stuffed knit/crochetted creature.  Well, that is simple and can mean just about anything from a bobomb in your pocket to the little hooked kitty sitting on your shelf.  Often cute or fanciful and not commonly large, amigurumi is an enjoyable craft with a nice finished product even for beginners.  

Some previous Ami Galleries:

~Amigurimi~ Gallery http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=289092.0
Anything Amigurumi I gallery: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=266505.0
Anything Amigurumi II GALLERY: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=310775.0

Where do you find patterns for amigurumi? All over the internet are quite a few sites that have free amigurumi patterns.  Some require registration, some don't.  Of course Craftster is my favorite. But here are a few that I have found.
http://freeamigurumipatterns.blogspot.com/
http://craftlog.org/craftingjapanese/archives/amigurumi/ -a diverse site with a lot of pictures and some good links.
http://artangel-sol.livejournal.com/
http://www.lionbrand.com
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=284386.0

If you can't find what you are looking for, but really prefer a pattern, you might try this site.
 Etsy is always an option also, or just "wing" it.
