  1. Amigurumi Winter Bear – AmigurumiWizard crochet pattern

    November 12, 2012 by Peter

    As with my previous pattern I posted here on my blog, it’s a bit early for winter themed Amigurumi, although it’s time to start crocheting those wintery critters if you want to gift them to family and friends when winter arrives. :)

    This Winter Bear is so cute with his big head and small hat. :)

    It’s possible you came here because you saw it in the magazine, and now you question where you can buy the pattern…

  2. Amigurumi Snowman – AmigurumiWizard crochet pattern

    October 29, 2012 by Peter

    Here in The Netherlands, autumn officially started at the end of September, but after days of really warm weather for the time of the year, it turned colder really fast. I’ve got this wintery feeling now, although it will be autumn for a while. I start thinking about crocheting for the winter, maybe some of my Amigurumi Snowman as wintery gifts? :)

  3. Cozy crochet project

    September 10, 2012 by Peter

    With autumn and winter coming up soon, I felt like doing a autumn/winter crochet project.

    So, I decided to make a cup cozy! Well, four to be exact.

    Cup Cozy

    It keeps you from burning your fingers and your tea, coffee or hot cocoa will stay warm longer! :)
    They are easy to whip up with some chunkier yarn, but they shouldn’t take to long with “normal” yarn!

    This is how I did it:

    I made a chain that would fit around the cup. Don’t join it together or anything, just fit it. Then I started crocheting. Feel free to experiment! I crocheted one with only sc, but another with one row crocheted with sc, and the next row with dc.
    When if fits around your cup, I joined it with a slip stich. Then I went down on one side with slip stiches, and joined the bottom together with a slip stich. Fasten off, weave in the ends and there you have it!

    Easy, isn’t it? :)
