This is a special dismountable amigurumi doll, called "amamani", from the words amigurumi+Amish: it originates from the "puzzle balls" of Amish tradition, simple crochet pieces that can be put together to create a toy, like a puzzle.
I really enjoyed this project, I would like to create other animals with this technique.
(Pattern from Dedri Uys)
This pair of mittens, very easy and crocheted in a multicoloured acrylic yarn, was made for practical purposes: you can spare 10 minutes' time each morning using these instead of the classical gloves with fingers which my daughter used to take ages to wear! :D posted from Bloggeroid
