InstructionsThis little guy was crocheted using fingering weight yarn and a size C hook, even though the pattern calls for worsted weight yarn.
It's easy to substitute yarn, just select a hook that matches your size yarn. Read my blog post on the topic, here: http://www.craftpassion.com/2011/05/substituting-yarns-in-amigurumi.html
Type of item: Toy
Style: Funky, Whimsical, Cute
leftover scrap yarn in fingering weight (Trekking handpainted and Queensland Sugar Rush- 100% sugar cane), 9mm animal eyes, polyester stuffing
What was your inspiration?
I love substituting yarns, so I wanted to demonstrate that this pattern could be done with any weight yarn.
I used some scraps of sock yarn to make this (and what else are you going to do with a few dozen yards of sock yarn?), so it's a great way to clean out your stash!
What are you most proud of?
I'm delighted that I could use yarn that wasn't much good for another project!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't be afraid to substitute!
