You know what’s fun about amigurumi?
You mess up the pattern and end up with the cutest looking bug.
He is beautiful
Aw thank you! And welcome to ribblr! Glad my bug helped you crawl out of your shell and post something
What pattern did you use?
It’s very cute! It’s reminds me of a whale also
its super cute
I was trying to make a frog by a pattern but it wasn’t written well. So my daughter suggested I make a bug out of it. So, i messed up on the frog “body” but made up the legs myself.
Now you have the cutest, original bug!!
@amit2677 It reminded me of a whale too!
Can I have the whale bug pattern
Yeah, write a pattern for something I just pulled out of my &$64!
Mebbe after Sunday I can write it down. Make a pattern? Who knows?
But the bug legs are:
start with standing stitch
2 hdc in 2nd ch from hook
hdc next ch
leaving about 8-12 inch tail depending on how large your stuffing area is.
Then angle your needle placement ( with yarn on it of course) so that the “foot” faces forward. When you figured that out by looking at it, then proceed with below.
Thread your needle through stuffing, come back out same hole other yarn tail is hanging out from, tie them in a square knot. Then thread the yarn back into stuffing pulling the knot into the stuffing , thread needle out in opposite direction it went in and cut off. Same with other tail. done!
I noticed that when I do the left side ( I’m right handed) i have to do my standing stitch with the project upside down to get the foot to face forward. Whereas with the right side, i do the standing stitch with the project upright.
Clear as mud right??
Add the legs to any spherical shape and you got a bug…
