Amigurumi is a Japanese term that translates into small toy or figure. These popular crochet patterns are fun to make and usually end up putting a smile on someones face. Snips and Snails Amigurumi is no different. These sweet little amigurumi are designed especially for the adventurous Huck Finn type, whether boy or girl. The pattern includes instructions for six cute figures; Hound Dog, Raccoon, Fox, Snake, Owl, and Hamster. These little figures are quick to make and fun to play with. Once completed, you can place the creatures on a shelf, desk or use as a crochet toy for kids. The small size makes them easy to pack in a bag for travel play toys. Your child can even stick his favorite one in a pocket to carry with where he goes.
Snips and Snails Amigurumi are made using a worsted-weight yarn. These intermediate crochet skill designs are fun to make and don't use a large amount of yarn. Check your leftover bin to see if you have the right colors to get started crocheting these little creatures right away. The finished size ranges from 4 inches to 6 inches, perfect to stick in a bag to always carry with you. Amigurumi use single crochet (sc) stitches with increase and decrease stitches to create the figure shapes. A little stuffing placed inside the cavity brings these creatures to life. These are six of the cutest creatures you will find and they will bring hours of fun while crocheting them.
