Say hello to Cornelius. He’s a cheeky blue bear that like me simply adores a good brew.
I’m very excited about this one as it’s the first amigurumi project which I ‘freestyled’ into creation. I usually follow Ana Paula’s patterns as her Amigurumi World – Seriously Cute Crochet book is one of the best I have seen for beginners.
The head followed the standard increase patterns of 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42 with 5 central rows (one row less than increases, which is a good rule of thumb) then decrease the same. The body I worked u to 24.
Shamefully I didn’t take too much notice on the legs and and arms 😦 The ears are simple 12 stitch circles.
My plan it to take notes next time and look at working my own pattern, which of course will be puplished here for all to see – so for those of you keen to learn how to crochet be sure to check back soon.
