The makers of Inside Crochet magazine recently released a special “bookazine” edition : The Amigurumi Collection. They sent me a copy of the issue and I was happy to see photos of several of my hookabee patterns, as well as some select quotes by me from when they interviewed me earlier in the year. Have a look!
I recommend checking the magazine out and maybe even picking up a copy for yourself. This special issue includes 33 amigurumi patterns (wow!), a couple designer interviews, and several tutorials. It is packed full.
The pattern designs span a huge range, including multiple animals, dolls, and food, all from different designers. They are divided up into several different categories: Cute and Cuddly, Fairyland and Woodland magic, Seasonal Fun, and Toys with a Twist. I think my favourite pattern is the Rapunzel doll with her tower by Lynn Rowe. That tower is so neat!

Inspired by the fun bobbles of Bill the Pineapple and Meg the Raspberry, I thought it was about time I designed a sheep! Meet Andy:
I absolutely love this guy. The photos really don’t do him justice – he is ridiculously cute. Those ears! When I think of sheep, I think of round fluffy bodies, long faces, and big ears, and I think Andy captures all of these well.
I made him using my go to acrylic yarn, but I can’t wait to make him in pure natural woolly wool – the kind of wool you may not want around your neck, but is perfect for a little sheepy like this guy. I wouldn’t be surprised if I have a whole herd of them soon!
You can find out more about the pattern and purchase it HERE. Can’t wait to see all your sheepies!

It has been a little bit since the Tutti Frutti CAL ended, but I have been away so haven’t had the chance to share the winners on my blog until now! This CAL was so much fun. Participants could either make one of my new berries or Bill the Pineapple as an entry into a draw to win some prizes. You can check out all the entries on ravelry in the CAL thread. I was super impressed with how many fruit amigurumi were made! And of course with how adorable they were.
To determine the winners, I numbered all the entries and then used random.org to draw 3 numbers. The first number won a hook from HeartSprinkle and a hookabee pattern, while the next two numbers each won a hookabee pattern.
And the winners were…
3rd Place: Wendy with her Dave the Blueberry!
2nd Place: Carrey with her Bill the Pineapple!
1st Place: Michaela with her Meg the Raspberry!
Thank you to all who participated and for cheering each other on. Also a big thanks to Krystle of HeartSprinkle for providing a super fun prize – a crochet hook with a custom handmade handle.
Now to think about the next hookabee CAL…yay!
