post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

How many members are familiar with amigurumi? (Pronounced am-ee-go-room- ee)It is Japanese for "cute yarn". They are small items that are knitted or crocheted and use very little yarn.
I just found this craft a few days ago and I am hooked (crochet hooked) gig

I was looking up patterns online for crochet teddy bears when I found amigurumi.
One site I found was Lionbrand.com and it had this cute chicken I want to try and make.

Does
any one else know of websites that have amigurumi patterns? I'm always looking for new things to try wink

What are your experiences with amigurumi?

It started with one dog. A Golden Retriever.  Now we have six Golden's and Popcorn is our pride and joy. Next, we got chickens, then bunnies. Now we have a crazy number of chickens that is growing by the day and includes Heritage RIR'S, Delawares and BBS Orps.

What a neat idea!  thumbsup

I love gardening, chickens, baking, reading - not necessarily always in that order.    Mom to Lulu, the lame part-time house chicken who loves to travel.

I love your amigurimi chick! Have you ever seen the book: Super Happy Crochet Cute? I always look aat it when I'm in the bookstore, but I am more of a knitter and I need to hone my crochet skills before I tackle these.

No, I haven't seen or heard of that book. But Now I will have to find a copy big_smile

And I haven't tried making the chick yet, I don't have any yellow yarn at the moment sad

I printed that one a couple of others out for my students to try today. They are simple circles and don't have to be perfect and so are a great first experiment with circles!
