I’m so excited to tell you that I’m hosting the Halloween Special edition of Ami-Along over at AmigurumiPatterns.net this month and it’s going to be so much fun! Besides getting a brand-new Halloween themed two-in-one amigurumi pattern at the price of one and access to the members forum, you also stand a chance to win a ton of crochet related goodies! Doesn’t that sound amazing!
We will be hooking up one of these spooktacular Halloween Kids during this Ami-Along, which will run from October 9 to November 11. And you get to decide which one of these cute little trick-or-treaters do you want to make—batty little Wanda or her catty little friend Hazel. Or if you are feeling super adventurous, you can even make both of them! Both Wanda and Hazel stand 24cm tall without their accessories.
If you’re hearing about this event for the first time, the AmigurumiPatterns.net Ami-Along is a fun monthly event where a large group of crocheters work on the same amigurumi project during a limited time, share photos of their work in progress and their finished amigurumi, ask questions and find inspiration in what others are making. During the event, the designer of the project will also be available for advice and some friendly chitchat. You can join the Ami-Along here.
Oh, by the way, if you’re wondering about Wanda and Hazel’s costume choice, I have the scoop for you.
Little Wanda has been dressing up as a witch for Halloween for as long as she can remember. But this year she wants to dress up as a vampire bat because bats are cool and they don’t need a broom to fly.
Her bestie Hazel, on the other hand, will be trick-or-treating as a cat because she loves singing and dancing and is a huge fan of the musical named after these felines.
The Halloween Kids is an intermediate level pattern. However, the pattern contains additional instructions on how to make some not-so-basic stitches, like the 4-dc bobble stitch and back post crochet stitch. It also contains over 30 step-by-step photos to help you through the difficult bits.
Though the pattern calls for sock weight yarn, you can use any yarn that’s already in your stash. Just make sure you adjust the hook size[s] accordingly. And there is absolutely no need to stick to the yarn colors recommended in the pattern. Feel free to experiment with colors—and have fun!
I’ll be looking forward to see your Wanda/Hazel over at the Ami-Along.
Update [November 13, 2019]: The pattern is now available for download at my Ravelry shop.
Happy hookin’! ❤️
