Amigurumi potato free pattern!



Most of my inspirations to make amigurumis come from Pinterest and Instagram. Recently, i've been seeing kawaii potatoes everywhere and can't seem to get it off my mind. I tried making an ami version of them with different expressions and happy with the way they turned out. It's a perfect project for beginners as you don't have to attach any pieces and very less sewing involved. 

Materials needed: 
  • Yarn in light beige colour
  • Crochet hook according to the size of your yarn.
  • Tapestry needle.
  • A little bit of brown and pink felt.
  • Safety eyes ( I have used 5 mm safety eyes).
  • Black thread (for embroidering mouth and eyebrows).
Stitches used:
