Mysterious Amigurumi Challenge

Suenhos Blanditos is 2 years old!

And I want to celebrate with you in style by doing what we like the most: crocheting an amigurumi.

Are you ready?

The Mysterious Amigurumi Challenge Starts:

2 times a week, throughout the month of March, I will publish in this post a part of the pattern of an amigurumi…

It is an unprecedented pattern.

Without title, without photos, only instructions …

You will have to crochet it to know what it looks like …

And think how the pieces fit together to guess what the mysterious amigurumi is.

If you participate you can win great prizes:

  1. The first one that guesses the mysterious amigurumi will win a € 30 Coupon to buy in Suenhos Blanditos.
  2. For the second and third winners there will be a Coupon of € 20 and € 10 respectively.

To participate you have to give your answer in the comments of this post, but beware, only the first answer you give will be accepted.

And if for example you say several answers in a comment: it is a bird, it is an airplane, it is Superman, the answer that will be worth it will be a bird. The first.

And since it would not be fair for the same person to repeat the prize, you can only participate in one of the websites, Spanish or English.

Play, crochet, use your imagination and participate in the Mysterious Amigurumi Challenge!

Remember, crochet the parts that will be published down here and when you know the Mysterious Amigurumi, write it in the comments.

  1. What s a great idea
    I think it’s a chiken

  2. Tengo que decidir lo ya? O puedo esperar nuevas instrucciones…
    El pajatiro de Charlie Brown y Snoopy. No se como lo conozcan: “plumita”, “Emilio” y se me escapa el oreo nombre que he escuchado para este mismo personaje.

  3. People, it’s not an already published pattern, it’s unpublished and this is only the first part …
    They will come out more parts throughout the month. Don’t rush to giving an answer, you only have one chance.

    1. what does embroider the twinkles mean?

  4. I love LOVE this idea! I’m starting on my first piece now 🙂

  5. Hola ya hice mi primera parte pero todavía no sé que puede ser espero avanzar más y ya darme una idea de lo que es…..un saludo.

    1. Paciencia Violetilla77, no te precipites al responder.
      Veo que hablas español, ¿no prefieres participar en el reto de la página en ese idioma? https://www.suenhosblanditos.es/retos/reto-amigurumi-misterioso/
      Puedes hacerlo en cualquiera de las 2 páginas, pero no en ambas.
      Saludos

  6. Hola participare

    1. Hola Mariella. Como le he comentado a otra compañera, puedes participar en el reto en la página en español: https://www.suenhosblanditos.es/retos/reto-amigurumi-misterioso/
      o hacerlo en esta, no en las dos. Lo digo por si te resulta más cómodo el idioma español a la hora de seguir el patrón.
      Saludos

  7. Part 2, row 6
    I don’t understand what I am supposed to do here.
    Currently, I just finished row 5; I have a small brown square.
    Thank you.

    1. You’re doing very well, Molly.
      At the end of row 5 you have a small brown square. Then, put the marker in the st where you are and work around the 4 sides of the square. Do it on 2 of the sides in the holes between the rows and in the other 2 on the sc and the beginning chains. As you can see, you will start crocheting in rounds, 4 sc in each side.
      I assure you that it is more complicated to explain than to do it.
      Kind regards

      1. Thank you. I understand now 🙂

  8. Hallo Gretel ik ga er vandaag aan beginnen..super leuk!!

    1. Veel succes Anja. Zorg ervoor dat je, voordat je antwoord geeft, weet wat de mysterieuze amigurumi is. Je hebt maar één kans.

  9. Hi, Gretel. Happy second year! Does this latest piece, part 3, get stuffed?

    1. Thank you very much, Sandy!
      Yes, in fact, both parts, 2 and 3 are stuffed.
      I didn’t say anything in the instructions, but I do mention the fiberfill in the materials, so some pieces are stuffed and others aren’t…
      Recognize which part is stuffed is an added difficulty to the challenge… although by its form it’s quite obvious.
      Good luck!

      1. Oh no! I wondered if part three needed stuffed, but it did not say to, so I didn’t. Now I have to remake it because there is no way I can open it back up 🙁 Luckily it is small and didn’t take too much time.

        You may want to mention in the opening explanation that we would not be told whether a piece will need to be stuffed or not. Just so people know they will need to figure it out as they go.

        1. I’m so sorry, Molly.
          Being an amigurumi, I thought it would be obvious that most of the pieces will need to be stuffed, especially if they are closed.
          You’re right, I’m going to mention it in the explanation.

          1. Thank you. Yes, I thought it seemed like it should be stuffed, but since I do not know what I am making, I am really following exactly what the instructions say. Since it didn’t mention stuffing, I didn’t stuff. Now I know I need to decide if it is stuffed or not.

  10. It has to do with Easter I guess, so maybe a baby chicken..!?

  11. Hi Gretel! I’m from Argentina, I can speak both, English and Spanish. I had done all the pieces yet, including those of this post, but I’m very confused at the moment and I don’t want to say anything by now. Have a wonderful day and enjoy your weekend!

    1. Hi susy007! that’s wonderful. Participate here then. Make sure before giving an answer.
      Good luck!. Happy weekend to you too.

  12. Hola buen día .
    Una pregunta la parte 2 y parte 3 se rellenan o así se quedan sin rellenar? Gracias y me está encantando el reto y ya más o menos se de qué se trata …… Un fuerte saludo.

    1. Hola violetilla77! Me alegro de que te esté gustando el reto.
      En cuanto a tu pregunta, sí las piezas de la parte 2 y 3 se rellenan. Fíjate que en la entrada, en las abreviaturas digo: Fill with fiberfill as you crochet. You would not be told whether a piece will need to be stuffed or not, so you will need to figure it out (Rellenar a medida que tejemos. No se dirá en el patrón si una pieza deberá rellenarse o no, por lo que tendrás que averiguarlo)
      Saludos

  13. Hello! I’m not sure but I would say it is Cogsworth the clock from the beauty and the beast. I am really enjoying this challenge. Thank you very much!! Part 5 done!

    1. Hello Ziortza! I’m glad you like the challenge. Thanks for participating.
      Kind regards

  14. I was having a lot of trouble with my password. I had to do a 24 character before it would accept it. I am enjoying this challenge. cant wait for part 5

    1. I meant part 6

    2. I’m sorry for the trouble with the password, tinaguerr. If you have more problems, please send me an email and I will help you.
      I’m glad that you like the challenge! See you on Thursday for part 6.

  15. I agree, I think it’s Cogsworth! Having so much fun with this, thank you!

    1. Hello lindapadget! I’m glad that you are having fun with the challenge. Thanks for participating.
      Kind regards

  16. Cogsworth from Beauty and the Beast! Yay!

    1. Maybe I should have started with “It is”… Cogsworth from Beauty and the Beast! I was so excited when I figured it out.

      I really am enjoying making a Mysterious Amigurumi. It makes it extra fun. Thank you for doing this.

      1. I’m glad that you are enjoying the challenge, Molly. It is my greatest reward. Thanks for participating.

  17. Hi TIna here, can you tell me what you mean by “with white yarn embroider the twinkles?” Thanks

    1. Hello tinaguerr. It’s easy, What does twinkles mean? flash of light, sparkle, gleam of light, flickering brightness, sparkle or glimmer. Where do you usually see twinkles? There are 2 pieces with twinkles… I can’t give more clues…
      Kind regards

  18. Hola, ahora si me perdi. Pero muchas gracias ha estado muy interesante

    1. Todavía faltan 2 partes luzelenac58. Espero que te guste cuando lo veas completo.
      Saludos
