The Dread Pirate Sam by Amy J. Shimel
You’ll find yourself speaking pirate as you make your very own Pirate Sam. This amigurumi pattern has several parts, but they’re all easy to crochet (and involve only a little bit of obsession). Amy says, “Once I began, I was unable to stop, crocheting at sword point it seemed—not of my own volition but by strict order of The Pirate himself. After a few days of my husband dragging me to bed at 2 a.m., The Dread Pirate Sam was finally done and a legend was born. I hope he brings you many adventures!”
Funky Stuffed Toys (Cat & Dog) by Judith L. Swartz
This colorful design is the perfect amigurumi for beginners and experienced crocheters alike. Made up of simple rectangles, they are great stash-busters as well. Bright colors and simple details define this cat and dog. They are a great exercise in striping, with a little shaping thrown in. Stuff them tightly or slightly for different looks. Whipstitched seams add another touch of color and emphasize the handmade look. With the exception of the ears and tails, both animals are constructed the same, just in different colors.
Sir Stephen, the Bunny by Donna Childs
The super-adorable crochet bunny called Sir Stephen, may become your go-to crochet baby present! Antique toys were the inspiration for this cuddly crochet bunny. Each body part is crocheted separately in basic stitches. Vintage buttons both embellish and are used to join the arms and legs so he can be posed. Organic cotton yarn makes this a perfect gift for a recipient of any age.
Frog Charming by Toni Rexroat
Now you can make a frog prince for your own princess with this fantastic amigurumi crochet toy. In the story of the Frog Prince, a spoiled princess loses her favorite ball down a well. It is retrieved by a frog prince in exchange for becoming the princess’s playmate—to eat with her, play with her, and sleep on her pillow at night. One morning the princess awakens to discover that the frog has been transformed into a handsome prince. Stitch him up to give as a present along with a copy of The Frog Prince fairy tale.
Ewenice McFleece by Christine Vitron
Crochet toys are made with love and are meant to be loved in return! Ewenice McFleece is a fine example of single crochet, double crochet, and the innovative double crochet with thrum. Basically an inside-out thrummed mitten, Ewenice consists of just a few parts: a body, four legs, a head, and ears. She can be worked up and assembled in a few short hours. Ewenice’s fleecy coat is cream-colored and she has black accents on her feet and ears but could easily change to other traditional sheepy hues or avant-garde color schemes.
Crochet a Lamb by Meg Grossman
Derived from a pattern in Weldon’s Practical Needlework, Crochet A Lamb is a little fancy and a lot of fun. She has a crocheted fleece fitted over a cotton-batting body which makes her perfect for showcasing handspun yarn for any of your fibery friends. The combination of fine yarn for the lamb’s legs, underside, and face, with fuzzy yarn for the fleece, is particularly intriguing. The body of the lamb is an armature over which the crocheted fleece is sewn. A beautiful and loving gift that is sure to be cherished.
