Hello, all! I thought it was about time I put together the ultimate guide on everything you need to know to get started making extreme amigurumi!
When I started making extreme amis, I had no idea how much interest it was going to generate! People have been asking me for tips and tricks ever since, and while I’ve shared here and there about it, I thought it would be nice for both you and me to have a concise series of posts right here! Continue reading Extreme Amigurumi: Finding Yarn & a Hook
And here is the second extreme ami that I designed for Premier Yarns! Meet Blossom the Bunny!
When Blossom was a baby, the other bunnies used to make fun of her because her ears were so long. After a while, Blossom learned to ignore what the other bunnies thought about her and embraced her uniqueness. (A lesson we all need to learn!)
Blossom’s amigurumi kit is now available on the Premier Yarns website HERE. It’s on sale right now and only available in limited quantities, so hurry! Continue reading Extreme Amigurumi: Blossom the Bunny Crochet Kit
Hey, guys! I’m back with another extreme amigurumi! This time it’s an owl and it’s the first in a series of three giant amis that I designed for Premier Yarns. His kit can be found HERE.
When Premier Yarns contacted me and asked if I’d like to design three patterns using their Couture Jazz yarn I jumped at the chance.
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. Continue reading Extreme Amigurumi: Owen the the Owl Crochet Kit
Hey, guys! I’m so excited to announce that Extreme Danny the Penguin is now available as a kit from Mama Knows Luxury! In the kit, you’ll receive the pattern to make Danny – including tons of step-by-step pictures – and all the yarn required! Find it HERE.
Most of the other materials that you will need you probably already have on hand. The few specialty items you might not have include 40mm safety eyes, a P/Q (15mm) crochet hook, and a weaving/loom needle. I’ve provided links to each item below. Continue reading Extreme Penguin Amigurumi Kit
Hey, guys! It looks like I’m back with another extreme amigurumi! I kinda vowed that I would never make another extreme amigurumi after my last one, (Let’s face it, guys, these things aren’t super easy to make!) but I just couldn’t resist saying “yes” when Sarah of Mama Knows Luxury asked if I’d like to make something with her extreme acrylic yarn. Staying true to my theme of only amigurumi, I decided that I would make a giant version of my penguin. You can see my original Cuddle-Sized Penguin pattern HERE. Continue reading Extreme Penguin Amigurumi

Hey, ya’ll! And here I am back again with another extreme amigurumi! I hadn’t thought that I would ever make another one or that if I ever did, I would make one so soon after the sloth. But here he is, jumbo Freddy the Fox! Continue reading Extreme Amigurumi Fox
The term “extreme crochet” and “extreme knitting” has been popping up all over the internet these days and has become wildly popular. I love the look of extreme crochet, and when I see a big crochet hook and yarn, the first word that pops into my head is, “fun”. It just looks so fun to work with! While I’ve seen beautiful big blankets, rugs, cushions and other wearable or household items, I hadn’t seen many people try and create an extreme amigurumi. And once that thought got stuck in my mind I could not get it out again! I HAD to try it! I mean, what could be better than a giant, huggable amigurumi? Continue reading Extreme Amigurumi
