Clio the Corgi // New Crochet Pattern!

Can you believe January is already over? Happy February! That means it’s Lunar New Year time, February 16th, to be exact. It is also the Year of the Dog for 2018. Hence, Clio was born! I love Corgis and since it’s Year of the Dog, of course I had to make him the Chinese New Year (CNY) crochet dog!

Clio is worked from his feet up. You will crochet the little parts such as the tail, forelegs and ears first, then move on to the legs, body and head. The little parts are then attached to the body as you go. That way, you aren’t sewing a bunch of parts at the end. The legs, body and head are worked in one-piece! Less sewing is always better, isn’t it?

FabBOOlous the ghost - Free Crochet Pattern by Doriyumi

FabBOOlous the Ghost
~ free crochet pattern ~

I just realized Halloween is less than one week away! So here I am trying to sneak in one pattern before this fun holiday ends.  Say hi to FabBOOlous, the ghost! FabBOOlous is a friendly ghost who loves to go trick-or-treating, just like the kiddos. He only comes out to play during October, so bring him everywhere this month!

FabBOOlous is a super quick & easy crochet pattern. There is no sewing! The arms are crocheted along the way to make it easier (and less annoying – I really don’t enjoy sewing in the little parts when doing amigurumi). As for yarn, use any cheap yarn you can find or have on hand. You will only need one color (white), obviously, safety eyes, piece of thread for the mouth and some fiberfill stuffing.

Wow, time flies! I just realized it’s been a month since I last posted the Basket of Eggs pattern! I have been busy crocheting gifts for family and friends who are expecting. These little amigurumi Juju Cats, however, were created when my husband came home with two keys and just placed them on the kitchen counter. He told me he was housesitting for a week or so. Looking at those keys…without a keychain attached, I knew he was going to lose them…

I am so happy to see many of you are working on the The Traveling Tu Family pattern, even though Easter is only a few days away! I have already seen some finished projects and I must say, I LOVE them all!! Thank you to those who shared their projects with me either via private message/email, on my Facebook page or by tagging #doriyumi on Instagram.

So how about another little free crochet pattern to go with the Traveling Tu Family set? A fellow crafter requested some little eggs to go with the bunnies and I said to myself, why the heck not? I don’t even know why I hadn’t thought of it in the first place. Duh!

Basket of Carrots - free crochet pattern by DORIYUMI

Basket of Carrots
~ free crochet pattern ~

A few days ago, I published a post about The Traveling Tu Family, which is a FREE crochet pattern I’ve designed exclusively for Melody’s Makings. Since then, my little one has been telling me that the bunnies need a basket to store their carrots. Because, you know, they can’t just leave it on the ground (the carrots will be dirty, Mommy!). So here we are, a free crochet pattern for a little basket of carrots!!
