A Year Filled with Amigurumi

Happy New Year! The first few weeks of the New Year are always so invigorating. Everything seems fresh and new and anything seems possible. It's in these first few weeks that we create New Year's resolutions. And the best resolutions are, of course, the crochet ones. What will your crochet resolutions be? Will you learn how to Tunisian crochet or finish at least four garments? Maybe you want to crochet more for family and friends?

The trick to New Year’s resolutions is to set attainable goals and to write those goals down where you will see them all year long. I like to write them on my calendar. And what better place to plan my crochet resolutions than a crochet calendar?


I am really excited about this year's calendar. The Crochet Me 2012 Amigurumi Calendar features a new inspiring amigurumi photograph each month. This led to my first New Year’s resolution: crocheting these incredibly cute amigurumi.

One of my first goals is to whip up Pucker the Goldfish, a symbol of good luck in the New Year, by the end of January. All of the patterns for the amigurumi featured in the calendar are available in the Crochet Me Presents the 2012 Amigurumi Calendar Projects eBook.  I have already started Ellie the Giraffe as a present for my new niece or nephew, due in April. And who can resist the Polar Lucibear's sweet little face? I may just have to make all thirteen.


Before you begin your own amigurumi, let me share a piece of advice from Stacey Trock, who created Frankie the Lobster. "Amigurumi should be fun, not frustrating. Don't get too caught up about positioning the ears 'just right' . . . whatever looks cute to you is right!" So whether you are enjoying the entertaining photographs of the wall calendar or the fun patterns or both, let these little amigurumi bring a smile to your face.


Be sure to check out more tips and advice the designers shared on the Amigurumi topic page. And get started planning your own crochet resolutions with your own amigurumi calendar. You can purchase your copy of the 2012 Amigurumi Calendar today for 50% off!

Best wishes,

I opened this enewsletter and SURPRISE! I am in sync with you Toni.  I had decided in October that I didn't have enough time in 2011 to do this.  I want to make as many different ami's as I can so I can give them to the toy boxes which pop up around Christmas time.  I'll be putting a little note with each one along with personal care instructions.  I've noticed how even adults love to have one of these in their pockets. ;)  Can't afford the calendar tho I love several of those ami's in there.  Hey, would this make for a great crochet challenge? And where can we post pictures of our accomplishments?

Glenda, I found the Pattern by going to:

1) On this page, above "ADD A COMMENT", You will see 5 Titles in Purple. Go to  the 4th one, "A NEW AMIGURUMI PATTERN EACH MONTH OF 2012."

2) You will be taken to the Named Page. Go to the Second Paragraph and click on: "Crochet Me 2012 Amigurumi Calendar page. "

3) Once that page opens, Scroll down to the middle of the page. You will see three Radio Buttons, "Forum, Gallery, and Download Now!" Click the "Download Now!" button.

4) Good-Luck!!!
