You might remember reading a post I wrote recently about A Kure for Krystle--a young mom currently fighting a rare form of cancer (you can visit her blog here and donate here to help out).
I've wondered, as I've read about this family, how Krystle's 3-year old daughter, Kloe, is handling her mom's illness. I thought maybe she could use a friend to help her through this frightening time . . . a little friend with a big heart.
I used the Heartfelt Bear amigurumi pattern from Lion Brand Yarn to make this little bear. I was very happy with how she turned out--simple, sweet, and cuddly, with just the right amount of heart.
Amigurumi patterns are always so fun and satisfying to make . . . they're usually pretty quick to work up, and there's something so snuggly and lovable about little crocheted toys! I bought the Nelson the Owl pattern from Fresh Stitches to make my little boy for Christmas, and working on this bear got me excited to get to work on a cute Mr. Owl! Now to find the time to stitch him up . . .
If you're looking for some cute amigurumi patterns to try out, here are a few that have caught my eye (all of these patterns are free!):
Have you tried out any amigurumi patterns? Will you be making anyone an amigurumi crochet friend for Christmas?
