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.
Looking forward to it :)
Definitely count me in. This will be fun and help me to use some of my stash.
Yes, I would love to make these all year, count me in
I am in. What do I need to do?
I am ready to try, these all are so cute. Thanks for doing this for us.
Happy New Year,
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 having a hard time locating the free pattern for January. Can anyone provide a link for me?
ETA: ooops, nevermind - found it!
Where can we download the month's pattern? Is 2nd jan and I cannot find the free download.
I would like to join in, but cannot find pattern :-( Tried the link that was posted but it just took me to a sign up for subscription page
Try the first post the 2012 calendar link with the wallpaper:)
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!!!!!!!!
