I had an idea of crocheting big amigurumi head some 2-3 years ago, while working on Amigurumi Fawn pattern. By the time I finished little fawn I was so fed up with all fawn/deer/moose/reindeer-like creatures that I forgot about the idea. It came back to me just recently and I decided to give it a try. It turned out great, I love the way he looks at me over my entrance door. It’s been there now for the last 3-4 days and I’m still quite (pleasently) surprised when I see it hanging there. It adds such a personal touch and charm to any corner of my home, wherever I hang it.
I enjoyed working on this piece so much that I can’t imagine anything else on my list of future projects than another animal’s head. I’m just not sure which animal it will be………… A mouse? A bunny? An elephant? I’d love to make them all… and maybe I will, I can never be so sure what will inspire me next.
You can see below some more images I took while working on the pattern. The second one showing how to attach ears.
