Riley's Magic Elf

I know that Christmas season has passed, but I say it's never too late for super cute little Elfs!

Kimberly at Seriously Daisys made this cutie by altering the Ernie and Erline Elf design by Deb Richey at Crafty Deb. She even wrote down the changes she made on her Ravelry account!

I love this knitting octopus! Sometimes when I'm working on too much projects at the same time I wish I had more arms to work on them all. =D

The Knitting Octopus is available at Max's World and at Max's World Ravelry page.

Free Amigurumi Pattern: Rudolph Christmas Reindeer

Oh wow! This is my first holiday season since BuddyRumi began and I never thought things would get so crazy! I heard about it, I read about it, but living it is a totally different thing!

So as you might have guessed by my little vent above, I've been swamped in crochet this month! The hook is practically a sixth finger by now. So because of this extra busyness this month I'm going to relax a bit in terms of posting as regularly on the blog, but every time I've got some news I'll pop in and let you know! 

Today I bring you the pattern for Rudolph, the cutest reindeer ever!

Favorite Technique

Embellishing with slip stitches is a technique that I use many times with my buddies. It is simple to make but makes the difference.

The tutorial is in Norwegian but it has a lot of pictures and with help of the translater is easy to understand.

On yarn measurements

When following one of my patterns, in the material section, you will see the yarn I used for that project. I don't give specific brands because they might not be available to you. I indicate the colour and also the yarn weight.

Yarn weight refers to its thickness. Using different types of yarn or hook can change the project significantly. Even though in amigurumi gauge isn't important (what's important is that you use a yarn, tension and hook that results in tight enough stitches that the stuffing doesn't show) I want you to achieve an end result that resembles mine (of course you can personalize it how ever you want).

So if a pattern asks for a medium weight or a light weight yarn, what does that mean? Do I mean aran, worsted, 8 ply, 9 ply... ? If you're not familiar with those terms or, like me, like simpler and more concrete measures keep reading!
