Time: 1 hour?
Most amigurami patterns using worsted weight yarn call for G hook but I use E or F, depending, so I don't have to hook tightly for a nice effect.
First pic of a choker, using the fastening button as the centerpiece.
The second pic here is of a knitty thing that looked fun to knit. I used big yarn and a FUN color! It still needs a face and neck shaping, but my older daughter has seized it for her very own and refuses to allow it a face. Could be disturbing...I thought initially to gift these critters to the little boys, but worried about long appendages causing some choke/barfing episodes and changed mind.
In any case, a purple one with lime hair and tail is in the works. Hopefully, with a face.
These are both Walmart yarns. Bernat, i think.
