How to do the reversed loop stitch (rls)

In this video I am showing you how to do the reversed loop stitch. I modified the loop stitch to this version, so the loops will form on the outside/ right side of the work, instead of on the inside/ wrong side of the work like with the normal loop stitch. The loop stitch offers a lovely texture, and is a handy method to create long hair. If you cut the loops and brush them, you can create hair as long as you like. But when you do the regular loop stitch for amigurumi, you’ll have to turn the work inside out to have the loops at the front of your animal, but that also means you see the wrong s ..read more

This is my first instruction video! I need to improve my filming skills, because the piece is not always in the centre of the video, but it works for now. I regularly get questions about how I work around a chain, so now you can finally see how I do it. This video shows how to work around a chain of 4, which I often use to create the muzzles of my crochet animals. This is what you read in the pattern: ch of 4. In 2nd ch from hook 2 sc, sc in next, 2 sc in last, turn. 2 sc in bottom loop of that last, sc in next, 2 sc in next = 10 I hope this video helped you learn this skill. If you have any ..read more

Winter Woolfie, Eurasian wolf pattern

And here he is! Winter Woolfie turned out to be a Eurasian wolf. When I finished the Border Collie pattern I immediately knew I wanted to make a furry version of my wolf. And since I’m not completely settled into our new house just yet I could do with an easy project. But I suppose I can’t do easy and this took much more time than I had anticipated. When working on the head I decided to improve the facial colouring. And when I was finally satisfied with the new look, I began to realize that I could make a Eurasian wolf, the wolf that is once again living in my country after a long period of a ..read more

Finnly, crochet Border Collie pattern

After a long break, I’m delighted to publish this new dog pattern! Meet Finnly, the realistic Border Collie, a fabulous amigurumi of one of my favourite dogs! When I started making dog patterns I really wanted to do a Border Collie, but the long-haired features of this Collie kept me from actually making one. I started with less hairy dogs, and then must have gone mad to make a bearded Schnauzer pattern. That actually was a lot of fun to do, and it gave me much inspiration for how to do the Border Collie and other dogs. For the Schnauzer I had used ‘reversed loop stitches’ to create the beard ..read more

Schnoodge, crochet Schnauzer pattern

I proudly present to you something completely different: Schnoodge the crochet Schnauzer pattern! After I finished my second dog pattern, I got so many request for all sorts of dogs that I decided to do at least two dog patterns a year. One night when I was in bed I suddenly thought, ‘How much fun would it be to design a bearded Schnauzer?’ and I pictured a very cute hairy Schnauzer face. When still working on the Siamese cat, I tried a first bearded dog head just to check if it would work, and the result was so delightful that I knew this was going to be the first new dog. To make a bearded ..read more

Maisie, crochet Siamese cat pattern

After making the very complex stoat patterns, I felt like making something a bit more simple. So I made a new cat! This is Maisie, a shy crochet Siamese. When I designed my first amigurumi cat, Baltazar, I made all sorts of cat faces in the process, just for the fun of it. I made a tuxedo cat, a tortoise shell, an orange tabby, a Siamese and a few more. It resulted in a lovely image for Instagram and I knew I would finish some of these later. So, the pleasant thing when designing this pattern was that I already had a finished head. I only had to design a new coloured body. Luckily for me – an ..read more

Nims and Ermine, realistic crochet stoat pattern

With much joy I present to you my first seamless amigurumi pattern, Nims and Ermine the stoats. Ermine is the term used for animals that turn white in winter, hence the name for the white version. And with this pattern you can make a weasel too, they look quite similar except for their shorter tail without the black brush-tip. So if you skip that part you can make a weasel. Keep in mind, though, that in most parts of the world weasels don’t turn white in winter. This animal took me the longest time ever to design, and I’ve learned so much much during the process. I stumbled upon many difficul ..read more

Free Santa hat & mini antlers pattern

Look at this happy Christmas duo! Don’t they look adorable wearing their little decorations?! Long ago I designed the crochet Santa hat pattern and a few years later I added the pattern for the mini antlers. This weekend I had the idea to do a fun photo-shoot with my newest animals wearing them. But oh no! It seemed that I’d lost the Santa hat! I looked everywhere but couldn’t find it. I was almost about to order a skein of yarn to make a new one, when I thought of a last place where it could be and there I found it! Because I’ll be posting a lot of pictures of animals wearing these lovely it ..read more

Okiri, realistic crochet owl pattern

Woot woot, I’m so happy I can finally present this pattern to you! I wasn’t sure about how to define this owl, because it resembles both the European little owl (steenuil in Dutch) and the American pigmy owl. Both are most adorable small owls, and I believe Okiri would almost make a live-size Pigmy owl. So meet my new realistic crochet owl pattern, isn’t he adorable?! When I started this pattern, I was worried that crafters wouldn’t really fancy making a cranky-faced plushy, but my worries receded when I posted a first teaser picture and so many of you fell in love with the face right from th ..read more
