Premier Yarns sells their yarn at JoAnn’s and it was so surreal going there and seeing all their yarn available!
We settled on three designs that I would make. An owl, a bunny, and a unicorn.
Pretty soon I received a giant box of yarn in the mail!
This is Couture Jazz, ladies, and gents! And it’s the BEST jumbo yarn I’ve used to make extreme amis so far! I absolutely loved working with! It’s super soft and really strong and durable. And it comes in some fantastic colors!
It’s made with a kind of knit/mesh texture as you can see below. This is what makes it really durable and allows for lots of frogging if need be. It’s 81% acrylic and 19% polyamide and is classified as a number 7 jumbo weight. I used a 25mm crochet hook to work with it, which is the suggested hook size.
I got started on the owl design right away. I decided to go with a purple and beige owl with white and yellow details.
I used colors, “Lavander Gray”, “Beige”, “Milk”, and “Tender Yellow”.
And here he is!
I’m thrilled with how he turned out! He’s one of my favorite extreme amis for sure!
And the most exciting part is that Premier Yarns put together a kit for Owen so that you can make one too! Find it HERE! The kit comes with a beautifully formatted pattern, all the yarn you need to make him, and a 25mm crochet hook. The only extra materials you will need are 40mm safety eyes, a weaving needle for sewing parts together, and stuffing! (Crocheted eyes could be substituted for safety ones.)
And his kit is currently on sale right now! There are only limited quantities available too, so if you’ve been wanting to give extreme amigurumi a try, this is the time!
Honestly, this is extreme ami making at its easiest! I designed these patterns with beginners in mind and they are easy to make and have well-explained instructions!
I hope you’ll consider giving extreme amigurumi a try! It’s really helped shape me as a designer and crocheter and each extreme ami I’ve made has been a special and unique experience.
Let me know if you have any questions regarding Owen or extreme amigurumi in general! I’m always happy to help!
