Crochet Amigurumi, Geek-Style

May 13, 2011

I am very grateful to crochet for a lot of things, and one of those things is how well it lends itself to any genre. You can have antique or ultra-modern crochet, or very serious artistic crochet, or silly crochet...any kind at all.

This post is going to be a little silly.

As much as I love pouring over very sophisticated and elegant crochet techniques, I'm a bit of a geek, and I love to express my geeky love in simple crochet form. I particularly love making geeky amigurumis. I don't worry about keeping track of stitches or writing patterns down (as the characters are usually copyrighted anyway), so each one is like a freeform make-it-up-as-you-go adventure. Here are a few of my favorite creations!
.
Crochet amigurumi . Fluffy, form Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Made from scrap bits of wool and thread.
.
Crochet amigurumi Alice, from Alice in Wonderland. She is only 2.5" tall, all in size 10 thread.
.
Crochet amigurumi And the 10th Doctor Who. Made from acrylic, hemp, bamboo, and thread bits.
.

Amigurumis are quick, fun, and make great gifts. Especially for geeks. I know there are more of you out there!

can you please, please, please put the pattern for the crocheted Fluffy? I would love to make that for my niece Emma, turning 1 this year. I'm sure she would absolutely love to snuggle with it!
