It’s been ages since I made any Amigurumi. There was a long time there where it was all I made. I have a few favourite designers, including A Morning Cup of Jo Creations and Local Legend Dendennis. I’ve also long been a fan of the Zoomigurumi books, with just about all of them in my collection.
So I got online and ordered myself a few of the brand new Scheepjes Catona minis so I could get cracking.
I ordered three, as usually one 50g skein of yarn is not quite enough and two is too many. What a gap Scheepjes has managed to fill here, seriously! I hate having leftovers. I never use them and I always buy too many different types of yarn to be able to make a scrap project, so these mini skeins suit me right down to the ground.
I couldn’t wait to get started on my project, which is going to be a floppy-eared bunny. I’ve already made loads of progress, with only the final touches to be made before I can show you the end result and share the pattern with you!
I’ve really struggled with the ears though. I wanted them to be long and floppy, but not too wide and not too narrow. I think I’ve finally nailed it (on the left).
So, wish me luck keeping my fingers prick-free, I’m off to sew him all together and makes sure the pattern makes sense for you in time to share this time next week!
