This amigurumi pattern took me a lot of time. I wanted to make a crocheted horse that would match Barbie’s proportions but then I realized that it would have to be really big! So that final version is actually more a pony that a horse. But you can always use thicker yarn and bigger hook to make a “real” horse for your doll.
This amigurumi horse can be done almost seamlessly. Only ears and the mane need to be sewed to the body. The pattern itself is a challenge even for experienced crafters (actually, it is challenging even for me) – you really need to focus if you want it to be pretty and symmetrical!
The doll on pictures is Momoko – she is slightly shorter than a regular Barbie.
The pattern is already available in my shops:
PART I of the tutorial is available here.
PART III (Mane & Tail) is also available.
Today I will show you how to make Celestia’s eyes.
Eyes should be crocheted with thread which is 4 times thinner than the thread used for the body. I use YarnArt Jeans for the body and it is a yarn that can be untwisted into four thinner threads so I just untwist it and use a single thread.
This is how I make both eyes:
Start with a magic ring and make the first row in black, the second and third in purple, and the fourth in white. Leave long thread ends (you will need them to sew eyes to the head).
After you finish both eyes, use white thread end to embroider white highlights. Then sew eyes to Celestia’s head and embroider black borders and eyelashes as shown in picture below. The borders should be embroidered with a full-thick thread. Check the chart below to see where the seams should go.
Aaaaand the eyes are done 🙂
Oh hi, Ma! Of course we’ve been very good boys all morning! Vase? What broken vase? We don’t know anything about it, Ma!
Meet those two super cute little amigurumi toddlers. They look sweet, but do not trust those innocent eyes. Once you invite them, not a single biscuit in your house remains safe!
Both baby dolls are seamless (except for the eyes which need to be sewed to the face) and fast to make. I wanted the body shape to be as realistic as possible and simple at the same time so that it could be easily altered.
The crochet pattern for the dolls is available in my shops:
This is Sandy. Sandy is a seamless amigurumi cat that I designed using some advanced shaping techniques which I developed while designing Cat Princess and Andy The Fawn patterns.
I think I am done with crocheting kittens for a long time. I can hardly imagine myself designing anything with higher cuteness factor than Sandy.
Maybe I should go into Halloween/horror stuff for a change?
The pattern is available in my shops:
I had this cat in my mind long before I actually started to design it. I wanted to make an amigurumi cat possibly realistic and minimalist at the same time. I wanted the pattern to be almost or entirely seamless.
I attempted several times and left the project to do something easier. Until I finally learnt (or discovered) all the shaping techniques that were essential to make the cat look as I wanted it to, without any compromises.
The cat princess doesn’t required much sewing – only the tail must be sewed to the body and this is actually the exact amount of needlework that I can bear in my pattern without feeling uncomfortable.
I like this pattern so much that it even became a part of my new logotype!
I am still thinking about making another seamless cat – the next one will stand on four feet. I think I am close to achieving that.
The pattern is available in my shops:
Actually, I wanted to make something completely different, but with every new round the shape looked more and more like a dinosaur! I crochet long enough to know that when it happens, the best thing you can do is just follow your intuition.
And here he is – meet Tom the T-Rex!
Some of you know how I “love” sewing parts together so it should not surprise you that the pattern is almost entirely seamless. Only those tiny front paws of the tyrannosaurus are sewed to the body.
Tom can stand on its own with a little help of his tail. He is quick and fun to make!
You can find the pattern in my shops:
Mrs. Duck was rather surprised when she laid her eggs and they saw they were colorful and striped. And she was even more shocked when she saw what hatched from those eggs!
Yes, it’s Amigurumi Easter Bunnies. They are colorful and cheerful because the spring has come at last!
They were made from my Easter Bunny Pattern. They are seamless and fast to make. I think they will make a great spring home decoration.
The pattern is quite simple, no dramatic shaping here, so I think that any crochet crafter with an intermediate level of experience will easily make it.
The pattern is available in all my shops (see below), also in an Easter Bundle (with a Lazy Duckling).
