Amigurumi, crocheted or knitted stuffed dolls, use basic stitches and simple shapes, making them ideal for both beginning and experienced crocheters, and since most are small, they are excellent stash-busters. Amigurumi are perfect for children, but you will find just as many adults who boast their own collection.

For our Crochet Me 2012 calendar, we asked you to submit original amigurumi designs. We were overwhelmed by your enthusiastic response. Thirteen amigurumi were chosen to model in fantastical locales, and each little creature has its own distinct personality and unique story to tell.

We compiled the patterns for all 13 of the calendar amigurumi into one downloadable ebook, which you can purchase in the Crochet Me Shop. We will also be posting each month's pattern for free for the first 7 days of it's month. The pattern will be available only from 11:00 a.m. central time on the 1st through 11:00 a.m. central time on the 8th of each month.

Join us here on the forums and post pictures of your amigurumi in the gallery. You can also download desktop wallpaper of each month's amigurumi for your computer. You can find the wallpaper on the 2012 Amigurumi Calendar Page.

Pucker the Fish is officially the first thing I made in 2012. I haven't even had breakfast yet! I'll see if I can post photos! 

Cheers and happy new year!

I'm ALL in on this one.  I love amigurumi, but have only made a couple things.  I had a ball in an earlier CAL hosted by Crochet Me, so am really looking forward to this one.  I even have some goldfish-colored yarn to get started!!

........The pattern will be available only from 11:00 a.m. central time on the 1st through 11:00 a.m. central time on the 8th of each month......

so where's the pattern already?  free is good if you only want the one pattern but not if you don't post it. it's been 23 hours. i could have finished it by now maybe even two!!!!!!!!
