Pattern Description:

These little amigurumi lanterns are based on the paper lanterns seen so often in Japan. The round red lantern is decorated with three cherry blossoms and the tall white lantern features the kanji character for "strength."

The lanterns were designed to be just the right size for many collectible dolls, including Blythe and Pullip. A finer weight yarn and smaller gauge crochet hook can be substituted to make the lanterns for smaller Lati or Pukipuki dolls.

In addition to being a fun introduction to amigurumi crochet techniques, this pattern shows you how to make two important basic amigurumi shapes -- the sphere and the elongated sphere. Once mastered, these two shapes can be expanded to create many different amigurumi characters!
