A couple of weeks ago someone pointed out the book Amigurumi Alfabet by Christel Krukkert to me (unfortunately only available in Dutch) and because I was looking for good character patterns for a while I decided to buy the book. I started with the R for my daughter Reva.
All characters come with an animal pattern that starts with the same letter, hence the ring-tailed lemur. My youngest feels lucky for having the lemur, while my oldest has the yak. And although I love yaks, and all other sorts of cows for that matter, my oldest seems to take it personal and asked if I could please find another, cuter and fluffier, animal starting with an Y, haha!
