2012 Crochet Me Wall Calendar Challenge



We Amigurumi. These intensely cute dolls can bring a smile to even the most curmudgeonly of I-hate-Mondayers. So how great would it be to see a sweet Amigurumi every month for a year?

Here's what we want you to do to help make everyone's day happier in 2012: Crochet your cutest, most creative Amigurumi and submit it for consideration for our 2012 calendar. The artists who design the thirteen selected Amigurumi will be published in the calendar.

How it works

♥ Create original, not previously published Amigurumi. Images of the Amigurumi can have appeared on a blog, but the pattern cannot have been published. The Amigurumi must be your design and not derived from another published design. Amigurumi must be crocheted, but can be embellished with embroidery, felt, beads, eyes, or other adornments. Amigurumi should be two to eight inches tall. You must be able to provide a pattern for the Amigurumi. There is no fiber restriction, but yarn should be readily available for readers who will want to make your design in 2012.
