I’ve been a beginner knitter for a few years now. I spend most of my yarn time crocheting so I have a lot to learn about knitting! I love trying amigurumi though. I thought I’d share a few of my favorite knit amigurumi designers and patterns with you!
I love these frogs from Mochimochiland! I’ve used a couple of her other patterns in the past and they’re pretty beginner friendly! I’d love to try these frogs!
I bought this snail pattern from hansigurumi a couple years ago but I’m still not good enough to make it! hehe! Isn’t it pretty though?!
Dangercrafts has the best monster patterns but I really like these wiener dogs too! Her patterns are also pretty beginner friendly.
Do you knit amigurumi or prefer crochet? Do you have any pattern recommendations to share?
♥ This simple crochet headband is cute and so fast to whip up! I already made one but I definitely need more in other colors! hehe!
♥ Did you know you can make custom color chalkboard paint from any latex wall paint? I had no idea you could do this!
♥ There are so many possibilities for these simple fabric flowers! I’m thinking hair accessories!
♥ This gathered clutch is pretty! And I wish I could get some of that cute owl fabric they used! :)
♥ If you’ve ever wanted to learn embroidery, check out Stitch School! It’s broken down into 4 really simple lessons!
♥ This is just super clever! This tutorial shows how to turn a plush fox into a lamp!
♥ I so wish I was better at knitting because this slouchy hat is so so so pretty! (free knitting pattern)
♥ This heart hat is so pretty also! (free knitting pattern)
♥ Do you remember my tutorial on glitter painting? Here’s another method that doesn’t require buying the specific paint I used. Instead, they use Mod Podge and loose glitter. They used it to make a glittery, golden cuff bracelet! So peeeetty! :)
♥ Check out this adorable bunny plushie! (Free sewing pattern)
♥ I think this might be my favorite Valentine’s crochet pattern so far! An amigurumi love bug! (free crochet pattern)
♥ Here’s a tutorial on how to make a cute little terrarium in a jar!
♥ I love this dead fish hat! Sounds terrible, right? I think it’s pretty cute! I don’t think I could pull it off but it’s cool because I can’t knit well enough to make one anyway! Maybe you can though! (free knitting pattern)
♥ Need a pretty Valentinesie ring? This one looks really easy to make!
♥ This is probably a lot of work. But if you’re up for it, here’s a tutorial on how to make a really pretty beaded, wire tree!
♥ This Instructable shows how to turn your shell collection into candles! Cute idea!
Just a quick post to show off the progress I’ve made on my bike! :D
I did most of this (except the two pieces that were in my previous post) all in one day. I spent a couple hours knitting on the patio. It was so nice to have the bike within reach when I needed to check the fit of a piece. Then, rather than calling it quits for the day, when the sun started to go down, I brought the bike inside for the night. I knit SO much that night! I’m actually kinda burnt out on it right now and haven’t touched it since. I’m taking a couple days off before I get back to it.
Thanks to all of the encouragement on my knit/crochet bikes post, I’ve decided to continue knitting to cover my old bike! I’m going to document it all as I make the pieces. And I wanted to make sure I got a before shot!
And so it begins…
The striped piece is what I originally made when I decided to cover the bike. I didn’t get far before buying a new bike and giving up on it. I’ve been working on the pink piece during the past couple nights. I think I’m going to work on the fork and handlebars next. I’m kind intimidated by the back part of the bike. I really need for the wheels to be able to roll so I can move the bike around. And I think the brakes is going to prevent that if I knit over the tires. So I’m thinking about removing the brakes.
