Recently, I decided to try making amigurumi. This little panda dude is the first thing I made for myself. Crocheting little stuffed critters is not as hard as I thought it would be. Just very time consuming, yarn-filled and maybe a little tough on my wrists and fingers. The original pattern was to make an ornament but the yarn I had made him too big and I opted not to make him a scarf. The pattern came from http://www.allaboutami.com and is a very lovely crochet blog.
