Dust off your yarn and let's get playing!

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
Anything Amigurumi I gallery Anything Amigurumi I gallery
Anything Amigurumi II
Amigurumi Addiction Gallery
Amigurumi Addiction 2 Gallery
 Amigurumi Addiction Tiny Edition Gallery

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.

There are quite a few out there that seem basic....Although this is coming from the girl who can't crochet a straight line to save herself.

You should do it!  Find more fun ways to be creative.  And youtube has no shortage of video tutorials to get you started!  PlanetJune even has some nice tips for lefties.
