Santa Claus Star Amigurumi Pattern


Work and fasten off 2 points. Work and don’t fasten off the last point to start

Joining the Points:

1. Starting from the point that you didn’t fasten off, work 1 sc in the next point, but join on the inside. Then crochet 5 more sc.

Then work 1 sc in the last point, this time from the outside and continue around this point crocheting 11 more sc until completing the 12 sc that form it.

Continue working in the central point again on the inside another 6 sc and finish in the first point by crocheting 12 sc from the outside. In this way you will have joined the 3 points, but, to crochet the central one on the inside and the sides on the outside, you will gain space between them to shape the star.
You will have 36 sc in all (3 points x 12 sc)

2. Start crocheting the central part of the star, in rounds and from the outside, 1 sc in each st (36).

3. 1 sc in each st (36).

4. Change to white yarn and work “4 sc, dec”, repeat (30).

5. Work in back loops only 1 sc in each st (30). You will return to this round to complete the hat.

6. 1 sc in each st (30).

7. Change to skin color yarn and work in back loops only 1 sc in each st (30). You will return to this round to complete the hat.

8. 1 sc in each st (30).

9. “4 sc, inc”, repeat (36).

10. and 11. 1 sc in each st (36).

12. Change to white yarn and work 1 sc in each st (36).


Let’s start crocheting the 2 lower points:

To do this you will divide the 36 sc into 2 halves of 18 sc that you will join in the central part. Place a mark (for example a piece of wool) so as not to get confused when you crochet.

Once you are clear on which stitches you should crochet, continue from where you left off, crocheting 1 sc in each st until you reach the first marked central st. Work 1 sc in the opposite side st and place the round marker to start crocheting the point.

1. 1 dec, 12 sc, 2 dec (15).

2. 1 dec, 9 sc, 2 dec (12).

3. 2 dec, 6 sc, 1 dec (9).

4. 1 dec, 3 sc, 2 dec (6).
Fasten off. Close the hole with the yarn needle.


Begin to stuff the star since you only have the last point to crochet.
With the point that you have just finished placed to the left, work 1 sc in the next stitch, then work another sc in the opposite stitch and place the round marker.
Follow the same pattern that you used to crochet the previous point.
Finish stuffing, fasten off and close the hole with the yarn needle.

COMPLETE THE HAT

With white yarn

1. Return to round 5 and holding the star with the red points pointing down, crochet in the free loops 1 sc in each st (30).

2. Inc in every st (60).

3. 1 sc in each st (60).

4. Dec in every st (30).

5. Work slip stitches joining the sc of this last round with the free loops of round 7. (30).

Fasten off.

Female Doctor Amigurumi Pattern

Download this Female Doctor amigurumi pattern for free and crochet it #StayAtHome

We are going through difficult times around the world and now more than ever we must stay together.

The apparition of coronavirus (COVID-19) and its rapid expansion among the population is something that should concern all of us.

Spain is one of the most affected countries, but whether you live here or anywhere else, you cannot be indifferent to the problem.

After the declaration of the State of alarm by the Spanish Government, we are forced to stay at home in order to avoid infections. It is an exercise of responsibility that we all must carry out, not only for ourselves, but for the others.

We must put individualism aside and think of those around us, especially those most vulnerable to disease: elderly and children.

Together we can reduce the expansion of the virus.

#Stayathome and facilitate the commendable work that health personnel are doing to ensure our health, putting their own at risk.

That’s why I would like to contribute with my grain of sand by sharing this pattern of a Female Doctor Amigurumi.

I think that will alleviate the period of isolation.

It also serves as my humble personal thanks to all the professionals who take care of us every day.

THANK YOU!

Galician Octopus Amigurumi Pattern

I like to think in Suenhos Blanditos as a great family that despite the distance, meets to enjoy a common passion: The amigurumis.

From several places and backgrounds, speaking different languages, men, women, young, old, each and every one of us are connected by those little yarn dolls that we like so much and to which we add a little bit of us.

Today I want to show you a little bit of me and tell you about a celebration of my land, Galicia.

It’s about the Day of the Galician Letters (Día das Letras Galegas) that is celebrated every year on May 17th, to commemorate the edition of “Cantares Gallegos” by Rosalía de Castro that same day of 1863 and that marked the beginning of the “Rexurdimento” or the Galician cultural renaissance.

Every year, the Galician Royal Academy chooses an outstanding personality from the Galician literary and cultural field to pay tribute to him or her for the contribution and defense of our language.

This year, the day of the Galician Letters is dedicated to Antonio Fraguas, an intellectual born in Pontevedra whose cultural contribution included archeology, geography, history, art, ethnography and dissemination.

As a detail, to remind you of my beautiful land, Galicia, I want to give you the pattern of this cute octopus, which besides being a representative icon of our gastronomy, is crocheted with the colors of our flag: sky blue and white.

I hope you like it!

How to sew the different parts of our Amigurumi + Kitten Pattern

We are going to deal with one of the issues that most concern the amigurumis crocheters, especially if they are starting:

How to sew the different parts of our amigurumi?

This question is important, because although you crochet each part very well, if when assembling the joint is not correct, it will not only affect the appearance of your creation, but you run the risk of detaching the pieces, with the problems that this can cause.

In order to sew the parts of an amigurumi you will need:

  • The different pieces previously crocheted in which, to facilitate the join, you will have left a thread at the end of the fabric. The length of this thread will depend on the size of the piece you have to sew. More it is better than less and it will be the experience that will allow you to adjust the lenght.
  • Wool or yarn of the right color in relation to the part you have to sew. You will need it in case you have not left a thread or that it isn’t enough to complete the joint of the piece.
  • Yarn Needle, that is, a needle suitable for sewing the wool or yarn that we use to crochet our amigurumis. You can find them in different materials, sizes and thicknesses. I usually use metal about 8 cm long.
  • Tape measure to place the pieces in the right place, especially if the exact measurements are specified in the pattern.
  • Pins to secure each piece in place and prevent them from moving while you sew them.
  • The diversity of the pieces and their placement force us to join them in different ways. Let’s see some examples applied to our amigurumi kitten:

Little Lulu Amigurumi Videotutorial, by Demetra Bogri

Hello!

Today I want to talk to you about something that has happened to me a few days ago and that has made me very excited:

The first videotutorial of one of my amigurumis!: Little Lulú Amigurumi Pattern!

But no, I didn’t make it, but Demetra Bogri, the magnificent weaver of 4elli.com, and everything was the result of chance … A bad translation of my pattern of Son Goku on the blog forced her to contact with me and talking, talking, she proposed to do the videotutorial of one of my patterns.

I could’nt believe it!!! Of course, I love the idea! So we started the collaboration.
