Finally a update!

April 2, 2013 by Peter

Yes, it has been a bit quiet on my blog lately. In January was my last post, which is just way to long ago.
Besides I’ve been busy the last months, my arm muscles are acting up again. Meaning, I’ve got to take a lot of rest. Especially in things like desk work (like updating my blog) but also crocheting. It’s not very intensive, but they are repetitive movements which can be irritating. So I didn’t crochet much, but start reading more (which I also really like to do), watch series I wanted to watch for ages and crafting other stuff which are less irritating for my muscles.
But, I did crochet some things the last few months, and I while watching some photo’s of my finished project I thought it was about time I updated my blog.

Because writing my own patterns is much more intensive than following a pattern, I only crocheted things by following patterns. Here they are:

First of all, with being the Year of the Snake, Stephanie by All About Ami created a cute snake pattern.
I love the way Stephanie designs her Amigurumi patterns, and it’s so kind of her to share them for free on her blog. :)
It’s a very easy pattern to follow, although I needed some attempts to get the tail part right, it’s a little bit tricky. But if you follow the photo’s, you should be able to do it. :)

Here is how it turned out:

Year of the Snake

The pattern is available on her blog for free. You can find it here.

Next up, Sheldon the turtle from Little Muggles. It’s a free pattern as part of the crochet-a-long Amy from Little Muggles set up.
I adapted it a bit, and I used some sparkly yarn that I had lying around. I also added some bells, so when it was finished, it was a perfect gift for my little niece. <3

Here is how he turned out:

Sheldon the Turtle

The pattern is available on her blog for free. You can find it here.

Next up, is one of the patterns I bought a while ago, but didn’t crochet yet.
It are the hippo mom and baby from Ana Paula. I think it’s one of her cutest patterns, so I really enjoyed making them!
I recently bought some bright colored yarn which is perfect for the baby hippo. <3

Here is how they turned out:


I looove how they turned out. <3 I’m planning to make another baby hippo, in pink, so he got a little sister to play with. ;)

The pattern is available in Ana Paula’s Etsy shop. You can find it here.
Be sure to check out her Etsy store; not only her patterns are very cute, but she got some combo deals where you maybe can save some money with. :)

Last but not least, another pattern from Ana Paula which I bought at the same time I bought the hippo’s pattern.
He is also one of the cutest creations from Ana, so I really had to crochet him. :)

Here is how he turned out:


The pattern is available in Ana Paula’s Etsy shop. You can find it here.
The same thing I told you with the hippo’s; be sure to check out her shop for some possible combo deals that save you money. :)

I think I already said it a hundred times before, but I love supporting fellow Amigurumi creators. I love designing my own Amigurumi, but I really can enjoy making free or paid patterns from fellow designers. :)

Well, that was it for now.
Hopefully I will be able to update the blog much sooner next time! See you then. ;)

    Hi Peter,
    Great creatures you make!

    I was searching the web for a cute little snake when I came across ‘All About Ami’.
    She has this great pattern of a snake. On her blog I also saw your creation of this pattern and that you’re from Holland too.

    I wondered if you could make me one, just like the original pattern of Ami.
    I want to use it for the birth announcement of my second kid.
    (The first one I used a small rabbit:

    Please drop me an email.
    Thanks a lot!
