Ami(French friend)-guru(like guru)-mi(a note to follow sew). I cannot pronounce that word to save my life. Fortunately, I don't need to be able to say it to knit one. A friend in my knitting group issued a challenge. Knit or crochet an amigurumi and be entered into a drawing to win a skein of Malabrigo, a Ravelry pattern gift certificate, some of my soap, or a project bag made by another member.
First attempt was Wash Bunny. The pattern is Baby Bunny Buddy and its free on lionbrand.com. The yarn is Pinguon Cotton which I found for .39 a skein at the thrift shop. This was my first attempt at double knitting and I messed it up. Thje head is made with purled double knitting so that at the top you have a seamless pouch. Originally, I decided to knit it instead of purling. It made a nice, dense fabric, but no pouch. I guess you cannot always modify the pattern with impunity. I think it came out okay, but I'm not in love with it.I am in love with this little guy. He is a present for the Farmer. He is from Devon Monk. It is a sweet, fast pattern that is made in the round and uses a few sock techniques. I might make another in hot pink.
