We all love our friends, right? Some of us have friends we have known since our childhood, some we met along the way as we navigated our way through adulthood. Old friends or new, they have all enriched our lives in some way. But with the lockdown imposed in so many countries around the world, many of us haven’t been able to see our friends, at least not physically.
So, to tell our friends how much we love and value them, we are having an Ami-Along at AmigurumiPatterns.net where we will bring out our hooks and yarn—those two magical ingredients!—and make cute amigurumi versions of our besties. Once we finish making our amigurumi Besties, we can surprise our friends with their amigurumi lookalikes (but please meet them only after the lockdown is lifted!). If this sounds like a fun idea, you can head over to AmigurumiPatterns.net and sign up for this month’s Ami-Along, which will run from April 8 to May 13.
Over the course of the next five weeks, we will use this base pattern to create three separate looks. You can get creative and customize the color of their hair and costumes to make the ami resemble your bestie. By the way, did I tell you that the Besties are based on real people? Alright peeps, meet Agnes, Kavita (which means “poetry” in Nepali) & Pema (Tibetan for “lotus”). They have been my friends since first grade and helped me survive school, break-ups and life in general. And even though we are all currently based in different cities, we still keep in touch through text messages and meet whenever we happen to be in the same city. So, in a nutshell, this month’s Ami-Along is an ode to friendship.
As a part of this fun crocheting event, AmigurumiPatterns will also be giving away tons of prizes, ranging from amigurumi paperbacks and e-books to Yarns and Colors yarn packages and Clover crochet hook sets. How amazing is that! Also, for the duration of the Ami-Along, participants can grab my other patterns at a 30% discount.
I hope you will come join us. You can click here to sign up.
Stay home, stay safe, stay crafty. ❤️
