Spreading love for the cuddly and kawaii amigurumi #Pop Culture#crafts#crochet#Mario#Nintendo#Pinterest February 24 | Cat Rocketship Source: flickr.com via Rebecca on Pinterest Amigurumi are tiny yarn animals/people/characters/kawaii objects, crocheted for our enjoyment. They're lovely, warm, and snuggly crafts with a big respect for nerd culture. I've never seen the variety of patterns that amigurumi-ers make in any other craft. Enjoy these nerdcore examples of amigurumi — most have patterns if you click through! HOBBES! Hobbes-related crafts take all precedence for me. The creator has kindly made her pattern free. Tiny monuments to geekiness: nerdy terrarium ideas Offbeat Bride has a post up today that made my heart pitter patter: itty bitty dioramas of nerdy scenes. Aw yeah, cute knitted bondage. Okay, I promised you nerdy. Let's get in there: Smurfette would like to cuddle you! No one doesn't love a weiner dog. Source: heavens-hellcat.livejournal.com via Chandrayee on Pinterest I want Totoro to be my friend. I'm digging deep in the geekery bins, now, ladies and gents! GeekCrafts has a Discworld pattern. I can't imagine how long that would take. You are just so darn CUTE, Kirby! Just bizarre. But awesomely so: this is a pattern for one acre of land. Just in case you thought amigurumi were all wholesome, Towelie comes along to prove otherwise. I'll wrap it up with something classic: one invincibility star, if you please. If you've dabbled in amigurumi, this is the perfect chance to brag: post 'em in the Flickr pool. Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here.

So CUTE want to hang it from my office ceiling. 1 agrees Reply I can think of so many people who need a Hobbes right now…. 2 agree Reply This is fabulous! I love making amigurumi, especially for children. Smurfette's hair is so fantastic! That's how I give my sock monkeys hair, too! LOL Towelie!!! 0 agree Reply I saw a book on this in a craft store and almost died of cute overload. If only I didn't suck at crocheting! Loving that Kirby and Totoro!!! 0 agree Reply There are also some knitted amigurumi patterns around the internet, though not as many as crochet. http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory/amigurumi.php is a list of some free knitted patterns. I can't really think of any other links off the top of my head, but I know they're out there. 2 agree Reply Apparently I need to add "learn to crochet" to my to-do list, because my life is not going to be complete unless I have my very own Hobbes to cuddle. 1 agrees Reply I love amigurumi so much! It's my favorite type of crocheting (and most pieces are deceptively simple–you only need to know how to single crochet). So far, my favorites I've made have been the Mew pokemon I made for a friend and the Ood from Doctor Who that I made for myself.
