Chubby Amigurumi Pig, Bunny, Kitty and Bear.
I haven’t had a pattern for a while so here is another multi-purpose pattern that can be used to make several different types of animals in similar styles. They are chubby little short cuties around 2 inches tall and could make fun little playsets for children, xmas tree ornaments, catnip toys or just cute plushies for decoration or gifts. The pattern is worked in a spiral and is fairly simple, well suited to all abilities. Ear and tail patterns from my other multi-purpose patterns could likely be adapted to fit these if you wanted to make a different kind of animal.

When meeting a newly born baby, one must always come bearing gifts. Seeing as I was out of frankincense, don’t know what myrrh is and I’m not all that biblical to start out with, I figured a cute little stuffie might be better. This little rabbit was made for Adam James and since the pattern is free it can be made for others now too.
This amigurumi was made with my usual worsted weight yarn and a 3.5mm hook. It works up to around 6 inches tall and is fairly quick to complete because of it’s size. The ears can be turned down to make a dog or if you would like to do another animal, the bear and kitty ears from this pattern could easily be used to change this amigurumi into another animal. The basic body shapes are quite different but the sizes are similar enough for the ears to be interchangeable. If you wish to complete this without the sweater, ignore the colour change instructions. Thanks to an awesome photographer for the great pictures!
He’s so happy!

Amigurumi Batman is not amused
Inspired by the awesomeness that is Gotham City Impostors, this amigurumi Batman has a little stubby build that matches the style of the game art in loading screens, business bat mascot and the calling card. Gotham City Impostors is probably one of my currently most favourite video-games and time vampires and one of the primary reasons for the ongoing lapse in new patterns. It’s definitely a game worth checking out if you are a fan of silly, action packed team and class based multi-player games and is available on PC, PS3 (where I play) and xbox. Amigurumi Batman’s face, eyes and bat emblem are glued on felt and the rest is pure crochet goodness made of my usual unmercerized worsted weight cotton yarn stash. I may get around to making a Joker but given my track record and tendency to procrastinate and get distracted by other projects, I figured it was best not to wait for the joker to publish this.

I bought some Briggs Little Regal yarn in Gold to experiment with cold pour over-dye. It’s a pretty affordable, moderately scratchy Canadian wool from New Brunswick that is often found in local LYS. I figured it would be a worth a try at $5.99 for 250 m and surprisingly it softened up considerably once out of the dye pot and the colours came out so much more vibrant than I imagined. I’m not sure what I’ll make with it but it will surely pair nicely with the skein of Brown Heather I picked up on the same trip.

The colours remind me of the tree lined street we lived on in Kokomo <3
Deadmau5 Head Keychain
This deadmau5 head keychain was a special request for a friend who is a big deadmau5 (pronounced Dead Mouse) fan. For those who don’t know, he is an electro-house music producer from Canada. It’s a simple pattern that make a 2.5 inch tall keychain size deadmau5 head and could probably be repurposed to a reasonable Mickey Mouse or random monster weirdo. The head is based on another designer’s pattern (Ideal Crochet Sphere), linked below. The deadmau5 head has varied in colours and styles over the years so there is a ton of room for modification and alteration, though apparently red with black x-eyes was the first.

Bernat Handicraft Cotton for my Birthday!
Today is my birthday and I’ve been surprised by my awesome husband with an incredibly lucky find of Bernat Handicrafter Cotton in the more elusive colours of their Fruit Line. He cleaned out their entire stock. As with all of their new or seasonal solids, they apparently can’t be bothered to show the new colours on their website or distribute them with any sort of consistency so this score was a lucky find and just in time. I think I now have all of their fruit colours (and plenty of them!) and will add them to my stash page shortly. So far I have Lemon (sunshine yellow), Mango (orangey yellow), Tangerine, Strawberry (bright fuscia but unfortunately scented so I will need to air these out), Blueberry (pretty vibrant periwinkle blue), Black Currant (grapey purple) and Kiwi (almost an apple green). I figured out these were the colours in the line because the pattern pamphlets Bernat published had the colours listed for a knitted fruit cozy patternsite, which is also not surprisingly, not posted to their web. Quite a glorious birthday haul if I do say so myself!
