Amigurumi Adventure

Inspired by the new issue of Crochet Me, I figured I'd jump on the amigurumi band wagon. For those that don't know, amigurumi is a crocheted doll or animal in Japanese. Some people are really into getting Japanese patterns and trying to translate them. First I read all the tutorials on Crochet Me about making Amigurumi. Then I started my kitty. I had stumbled upon this Amineko Cat pattern that Sarah from Ramblings in a Little Black Dress was nice enough to post and decided this was a good first project.
So here he is! I made him with Red Heart Soft Yarn in "Guacamole" and "Turquoise." I am thinking I'll keep him for baby or give as a gift. For more inspiration (and a few free patterns) check out
Amigurumi-Along.

Hi,

I noticed that you had a link to my amineko page on your blog, but the link gets 404'd. Here's the updated link.
