I love to crochet animals, but no I'm looking for something different.  I read something about Amigurumi crochet from Japan and I'm fond of it!!  Because I'm not such a creative person, I'm looking for patterns to make these little guys...can anyone help me or give me suggestions?

Thanks!!

Okay I am not sure I know what you are talking about but thought I would post some sort of an idea since it looks like many people have read your post. Maybe you could post a picture of what you are talking about....
in the meantime (you may have already thought of this) i have found it is easy to use sewing patterns or something similar with crochet. Making pieces that fit into the shapes of the pattern so maybe you could search the internet or sewing pattern at a craft store for some unique animals to make.. Search craftster even!
hope that sparked an idea for you!  Tongue

Amigurumi is just crocheting in the round with single crochet... it's really simple... This otama is an example. I've posted a translation of the pattern here. Scroll down the page to the Feb. 11, 2003 entry. I'm going to post more links to Amigurumi patterns on my blog.

I purchased several Amigurumi books thinking that the copious illustrations would be enough for me to figure out the pattern, but unfortunately I was a little too ambitious. I need to work out some kind of a trade where someone who reads Japanese can translate for me and I'll... make something? give them my second born??? I'll figure out something... Any takers out there?

In this place it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place.

I can take a crack at translating a page or two.  I would need a scan of what you need translated.

I just had a Japanese friend of mine translate the seal pattern on the blog just posted. She did it in like 5 minutes and she doesn't even crochet. So I'll post it as soon as i test it...

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

Hey Autumnleaves,

You're right, I should insert o picture.  But I tried and I don't seem to get it how to put in a picture.  Can anyone help me?

This is my completely made-up version of this japanese bunny:


Which I found through ROHme's blog: http://rohmerohmy.blogspot.com/

There was not an actual pattern on the page for this, so I just went from the general idea of crocheting in the round. It's pretty close, and extremely easy! I'll put up my approximate pattern on my blog sometime..

It's really super!!  That's just what I'm looking for!!

Can you tell me (short version is ok) how you made it. 

You know, this bunny is in fact Dutch, and it's called Nijntje.  It's very popular in my country (Belgium).  So, it would be very nice if I could make it. 

Thanks a lot!!

PS:  my brother is now visiting Japan, and he promised me to look for these amigurumi books.  When he's back(in a month), I'll keep you informed and I'll share some patterns (hopefully it's not so difficult).
