|A set of Tamie Oldridge's amazing patterns from her pattern shop at Roxycraft|
After crocheting one of her charming little fish, I was hooked. (Pun intended) I continued through the years and more recently, I made these three sea creatures for the new baby of two of my dear friends. I used Roxycraft's pattern as a basis for the little green fish, but improvised a lot for the baby puffer and octopus.
Crocheting can be so relaxing and rewarding --especially with an amigurumi project. They really just get cuter and cuter with every stitch. You know, maybe I'll give that ol' warthog a try.
How 'bout some inspiration:
