Yes, amigurimi seems to be everywhere. One of the reasons that this Japanese crochet toy craft is so popular is that it is so very cute! For example: these Super Crochet Wonderful Elephants  by Narumi Ogawa via Craft, really are just as darling as they look.

Amigurimi projects are tough to put down because they are so simple and sweet and they make great little gifts. Typical amigurimi patterns are worked in a spiral—that is, there’s no joining of rounds—so be sure to use a stitch marker to keep track of the beginning of each new round.

Amigurimi patterns make for great quick patterns that you can usually make up with yarn you already have since most parts don’t take up anywhere near a whole skein. They’re slightly addictive—at least to me—because I can almost visualize the finished piece as I go so I never find a stopping point!

Here are some of my favorite free Amigurimi patterns on the Web:

  • Ana Paula’s cactus (this would make a sweet pincushion for a sewer)

Many of these designers have more than one free project on their site, so be sure to browse around. Have fun!
