Pipsqueak Peeps
~ free crochet pattern ~

Here’s another very simple, quick and easy crochet pattern for Easter! These cuties are crocheted with the super fluffy soft yarn from Bernat – the Pipsqueak yarn! Although soft and fluffy, they are quite hard to see while crocheting, you sort of have to ‘feel’ the stitches to know where your hook should go. For that reason, I do add a helper yarn (that’s what I like to call it) and it does help a lot in seeing where your next few stitches are going to be. For the samples, I picked a lightweight yarn that matches the color of the pipsqueak yarn and it really helped a lot.

The Cat in the Hat Amigurumi
~ free crochet pattern ~

This Cat in the Hat amigurumi was created for my little one, who went to see the Cat in the Hat puppet show at a children’s theatre. He brought the cat with him and my husband took photos to show me how he was hugging the cat while watching the show. It is such a good feeling to know someone cherishes your handmade gift, isn’t it? The Cat in the Hat now sits at home with our many Dr. Seuss books.

Juju Cats

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…

Basket of Eggs

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 ~

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!!
