Owls, Bunnies, Monkeys & Chickens
My favorite has to be the owl. I think it turned out well and looks really cute.
The Owl is a new pattern that I got from a magazine called "Amigurumi". It has since gone out of print which is a real shame because it was quite a good publication. I managed to purchase the first 3 volumes but haven't seen it for sale since. I actually think it was one of the better publications compared to some of the others that are around at the moment.
I buy a lot of crochet and knitting magazines but what I am discovering is that a lot of them are owned by the same publisher and so they tend to print the same patterns across the different magazines which can be a bit annoying especially when you end up with the same pattern from 3 different magazines.
The bunnies and the chicken are patterns that I bought from Ebay years ago. At the time they were the original pages of the patterns but now it seems that everyone sells copies of these patterns which must be very frustrating for the original pattern writer.
