single crochet, double crochet, increase, decrease
I am an architect/designer with a passion crochet and since I discovered amigurumi I couldn't stop crocheting...especially the classic little amigurumi cactus. So I started to design and crochet a series of them with personalized names. You can see more of them on my flickr account: : http://www.flickr.com/photos/92887884@N06/sets I have just started creating patterns so there will be more soon! Hope you enjoy them! Cheers Mary
