March Pattern Roundup! POTATOES?!
St. Patrick's Day is in March, and I associate potatoes with Ireland (due to that whole Potato Famine, I assume), and I also got a weird commission for, uh, a bunch of potato people and a potato king? So, does it make sense that this month's pattern roundup theme is...potatoes? I think so!
Each of the potato people I made needed to be a little different (colors, sizes, etc.) but I looked around at existing amigurumi potato patterns for a starting point and inspo for my bunch of potatoe people. Here are my favorite potato crochet patterns and they are all totally FREE!!!
Images below belong to their respective owners/pattern makers, of course! Only the potato people above are mine.
This is a very easy potato of good size and I used this pattern for two (I think??) of my potatoes, but I used worsted weight yarn and an F hook to make them a bit larger than the pattern. Fay has A LOT of fun free patterns!
Amugurumi Potato by A Little Love Everyday
A Little Love Everyday is one of my FAVORITE designers when I need a cute, little pattern for some occasion or another, and OF COURSE she has an awesome little potato. The faces! Look at the faces!
Again, many cool patterns here in addition to the Pudgy Potatoes! I like these because they're not as round and uniform as the other potato patterns. Knot Bad has a TON of seasonal patterns that are worth bookmarking for later too! There are also some cool how-tos, so poke around!
Another one of my favorite go-to designers when I need a quick handmade gift is Repeat Crafter Me, and lo, there were potatoes!
