Follow Up #2 – Amigurumi Pattern Books

IMG_1260IMG_1264I have recently finished the seal from the Easy Crochet Critter book. It was a fun pattern to do, but took some counting and concentrating to complete. His body is all one piece with a bump for his head and the turn from neck to body. At least that meant less pieces to sew together in the end which was nice for a change.


I am also not sure I like how the bottom stitched together. You crocheted two stitches together at both the first and last of each row on the body which left a hole (Maybe my tensions are just too tight and that is why I got the holes.)

The seal has a new home he will be going to soon, but in the meanwhile, he has been doing some “horsing” around with the alligator and  the tiny bear.

  1. When making this, did you sc through both loops or the front loop? I made the hippo through the front loop and the elephant through both. The elephant looks weird 😦

    • I sc through both loops. Previously when I sc through just the front loop their heads came out pointy instead of round. Especially on the bear. What I learned from the elephant I made was that I needed to go through both loops and so ever since then I have always went through both loops. I hope that helps you out.
