After swooning over pages filled with amigurumi cuties, I decided to give amigurumi a go. I can knit basics, I can crochet basics, so amigurumi shouldn’t be that hard (right?) But what should I try first? I was spoiled for choice because patterns are so readily available online, although the nicer ones would require you to fork out a couple of bucks. After scouring tons of amigurumi sites, I found a koala pattern which looked simple enough for an amateur. I managed to complete the pattern within a few hours, and the result was…
A little baby koala! Koko’s just a little shy…
…but loves hiding and playing amidst my wedding bridal bouquets! ♥
For those of you who would like to crochet a koala of your own, here’s the pattern!
Do note that if you’re using safety eyes, you’d want to thread them on around row 7, but if you’re using beads you can figure out the positioning when you’re all done. I used 8 ply Marvel wool and a 2.5mm crochet hook.
