Wow! This pattern sure challenged me! In the end, it's a simple and quick pattern but the process of designing, trial and errors, and lots of frogging, I finally have it ready! If you follow my work, you know I'm all about the beanies and I love designing sweaters too but I never really got into amigurumi. My hands just can't handle it especially since you always need tight tension in smaller toys.
No worries if you are the same! This pattern uses super bulky weight yarn so it's not as bad and I didn't even make it tighter than I thought I needed. I was surprised how well the Bernat Blanket Yarn crocheted up with none to little gaps and spaces.
