Amigurumi Mice!

Post by CinnamonPearl on Sun Jun 26, 2016 10:49 pm

So I can't remember whether I've mentioned this or not, but for the past year or so I've really wanted to get into crochet. Well, last month or so, I found out that one of my friends is a crochet expert, so she taught me how! It was hard at first, especially frigging magic circles, but I've finally gotten the hang of it. And since I'm a lover of all things cute, I pretty much immediately took to amigurumi, and my favorite thing to make now are amigurumi mice! And since I happen to know a bunch of people who like mice, I thought I'd show you guys the little fellas I've made.



This is the first one I made, named D'Angelou the liberal Republican by one of my acquaintances. I messed up with the eyes and ears and the tail is a bit wonky, but I think he otherwise came out alright for a first try! (Just don't ask him his opinions on immigration.)



This is the second one I made. I think he's a big improvement. I never properly named him, but I accidentally started calling him Goose! Hope you don't mind, Scaredy. Smile



The fourth one I made! Her name's Maggie. For some reason, she came out way smaller than the first three, even though I didn't do anything different? Kinda weird. Might just be the yarn though. I especially like the way her face came out!



And the last one, who I made earlier tonight. I call him Valentino. He was pretty much me experimenting with using a different color for the ears. Came out okay, but he looks messy on the bottom from when I sewed the ears on. Tricky tricky. This pattern just isn't meant for dual colors, which is a shame, cause I still wanna make my broken ladies in yarn form! (Look at Little Cow's tail on the bottom. She was trying to ruin my photo shoot the entire time I was taking these!)

That's all of them! There is also Jessica, who's light pink with a brown nose, but I gave her to my sister, so I don't have her on hand. I kinda wanna open an etsy shop to sell these someday, or start a project where I recreate all my girls in yarn form. Egg, Rosie, and Lilith would be easy, but Mabel and Cow would require some complicated patterns to nail the broken look. But yeah, I hope you guys enjoyed my cute mice!

Is it crocheting in circles that got you? It's difficult to do at first (I totally messed it up my first try) but it becomes easier with practice. I've heard most people say it's easier than knitting but uses more yarn.

I couldn't even figure out past chain stitch or whatever it's called Laughing
I'm so used to two needles that one needle seems like a ridiculous idea. To me, knitting is way easier—once you know a basic stitch, you can do practically anything!

Aww, really? Well once you chain, all you have to do is turn around and make single crochet stitches into all the chain stitches, and keep going to make a square. But, uh, that very poor explanation was probably no help. Laughing

Cute. And Goose loves attention, so he would be pleased that you used his name. I feel like i could maybe even crochet something like that!

I could send you the pattern I use if you want! I have a PDF of it. Boy, I had no idea there were people into crochet on this forum. ^.^

AHHHH!! They're so cute!!
I may have just forced my partner to come and look...Very Happy

I love crochet, but I get frustrated with amigurumi...I have a problem with crocheting (and knitting) with too tight a tension...I'm trying very hard to loosen it Razz

Thank you! I had that same problem when I first started, but I got better at it once I learned to hold the yarn nice and loose.
