I've been wanting to try my hand at amigurumi for a while now. Amigurumi is, according to Wikipedia, "is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures". After looking around on You Tube and I found a tutorial for how to read a pattern for an amigurumi giraffe (which can be found here). So far I've only got the body and an arm/leg done. But I'm pretty satisfied with it. I can't wait to finish it and work on something new!
