This little guy was a bit of a last minute thing, which is why he is rather wonky and the hook I used was too big for the yarn. I made him as an example of how to write an amigurumi pattern for a post on my blog, he's basically all spheres/half-spheres and tubes, so not particularly challenging.

The completed pattern is:
Quote
Body
sc 6 into magic ring, (6 sts)
sc2 into each st (12 sts)
sc1 increase 1 all round, (18 sts)
Work in sc for 14 rounds
sc 9, (inc 1, sc2) 3 times.
Sc next row plain.
Sc9, (inc 1, sc3) 3 times.
sc next row plain
sc9, (inc1, sc4) 3 times
sc next row plain.
sc9, (inc1, sc5) 3 times
sc next row plain.
(sc4, sc2tog) 6 times
(sc3, sc2tog) 6 times
(sc2, sc2tog) 6 times
(sc1, sc2tog) 6 times
sc2tog 6 times
Draw yarn through remaining stitches and close

Eyes
sc 6 into magic ring,
sc2 into each st
sc1 increase 1 all round,
sc 1 row
(sc1, sc2tog) 6 times sc2tog 6 times
sew to body

Arms
sc 6 into magic ring,
sc2 into each st
sc1 increase 1 all round,
sc 12 rows
Do not close, sew upper edge to body

Feet
sc 6 into magic ring,
sc2 into each st
sc1 increase 1 all round,
sc 6 rows
sc2sts tog 6 times
pass yarn through remaining sts and close.

Definitely not ugly, I find him absolutely ADORABLE! I plan on printing the pattern, grabbing the first skein of yarn I come across and making about 10 of these guys. I'm glad you posted the pattern with it, cause I would have asked you for it anyway!

I wish i was a glow worm
A glow worm's never glum
Cause how could you be grumpy
When the sun shines out your bum!

Thank you for sharing your "how to write an amigurumi pattern post".  I recently have started to try to make my own patterns and I will definitely use your post as a reference when I try to make another pattern. 

Cute little ugly guy. Grin

Thanks Cheesy

If any of you do use the tutorial I'd be grateful for any feedback, e.g. assumptions I might have made, parts that are unclear or confusing, etc!
