Hi everyone! I wanted to share today one of my favorite alternatives to plastic safety eyes when making amigurumi. And bonus, they are fast and easy!

These came to be when I was searching for an 'eye' to have a crisp, delicate look. 

I have made some with worsted black yarn but it just didn't meet the look I was going for when the eye needed to be on a smaller scale. 

There are many reasons we look for an alternative to plastic safety eyes. The most popular reason being the recipient of our beautiful creation is a little one under 3. 

I now make most of my amigurumis with plastic safety eyes because my kids are over this age and the fact that they pop in quickly! 

With that being said though, I have to admit I love the look of using crochet thread. By the time I'm done, it was worth a few extra minutes. Here's an example from the Amigurumi Cow Pattern!



To make these I used a 2.25mm hook (2.5mm should work just fine too) and size 10 black crochet thread. I also use some white to add a little reflection from time to time for added detail. 

I know a lot of you may have embroidery thread/floss on hand and this can be used too, however, it is thicker so you may want to bring it down to 4 ply instead.


On an off note, I absolutely love crochet thread! The beautiful color selection they now come in are amazing! I use them often to make tiny flowers like in these hair clips.

Ok, back on track now...... these eyes work up fast and can be sewn on your amigurumi project before or after you close the head. You can also easily add eyelashes as you sew them on!

I used the 12mm size below for my Cuddly Caterpillar pattern! It was perfect to add a bit of reflection and detail!




Below are instructions for making 4 common sizes found in amigurumi patterns:
9mm, 10.5mm, 12mm and 15mm

You have all brought me joy in your requests for a boy version in my amigurumi patterns. Having 3 girls I had a bias, and looking back now I notice it in my craft fairs too, whoops! It was so much fun to design another boy pattern and I have a soft spot for bunnies! Win, win!  



I hope you enjoy it too. Below is the pattern for the boy version, you can head over here to find the girl version!


If you are new to amigurumi check out my tips and materials page to help you get started!

These bunnies were purposely made about the same size as my other forest animals, so they can be played with together as friends or displayed nicely at a craft fair. Be sure to visit Holly the Honey BearMia and Marshall the Frog for more amigurumi fun!

SC INC- Single crochet increase

DC INC- Double crochet increase

INV DEC- Invisible decrease

HDC- Half double crochet

This bunny measures about 14 inches from ears to feet !

*Slowly stuff as you go, you want it to be firm but not stretched. You will be working in the round, I like using a stitch marker at the beginning of each round.

Legs and Body-

Make 2: Using beige

Round 1: Create a magic circle with 6 SC

Round 2: SC INC in each stitch (12 SC)

Fasten off (do not fasten off at the end of the 2nd leg, see below)

(At the end of Round 24 on the 2nd leg, complete a SC in each of the next 6 stitches (this will line up your legs to be straight when we join. Round 25 joins the legs together and starts the body)



Round 25: Chain 3 and attach to the first leg with a SC (make sure both of your feet are facing the same direction), SC in the remaining stitches around the leg, when you reach the chain make a SC across each of the 3 chains, SC in the remaining stitches of the next leg and SC across each of the 3 chains (you will have SC on both sides of the 3 chains now) (42 SC) This completes your join and is where your next round will start.

Note: Here is where we will add the facial features before we start closing the head. Insert the eyes between rows 16 and 17, 8 stitches apart.

Nose and mouth- Using pink embroidery thread place the nose two rows beneath your eyes and two stitches in on each side (this will leave 4 stitches in the middle and this is what you will pass your thread through to create the nose). Pass your thread through 13 times (or as many as you would like for a thinner or wider nose). Use your thread to make a straight line down 3 rows and then a ‘V’ for the smile, please see picture for reference.

I am so ready for Spring to be here and with Easter around the corner, these headbands are perfect for both! 

These work up fast (I feel I say that on EVERY pattern I make, but that is probably because I like patterns that I can have done fairly quickly). It's my go to!


~~Be sure to join the Grace and Yarn Crochet Group on Facebook, a growing community where you can share your work and ask any questions you may have in the process! ~~

To make a bunny headband you will need a 1-inch wide headband (don't worry if you have a wider or narrower one, we can adjust). I found the ones I used at Walmart in the girls' department, they came in a 6-pack for only $3!




The best thing about this headband is that it uses hardly any yarn and is a great way to work through your scrap stash.

This would be a sweet gift or item at a craft fair and pairs well with the Berry Patch Bunny!

Materials:

  • Worsted weight yarn in color of your choice for the bunny and flowers
  • 3.5 mm and 5.00 mm crochet hook (these are my favorite brand of hooks!)
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry needle
  • Headband- I used a 1-inch wide headband (I will give instructions on how to alter if you have a different size on hand)
US Abbreviations:

MC- Magic circle
SC- Single crochet
SC INC- SC increase
INV DEC- Invisible decrease
DC- Double crochet
Sl st- Slip stitch


Let's hop to it!

Headband- With 3.5 mm hook
To start the headband make a magic circle with 10 SC, pull tight to close. You will want to tie a knot to secure your magic circle, this will prevent it from coming open once the headband is placed inside.

Rounds 1-70: SC around (10 SC)

As you can see we are making a tube to insert the headband into. If you have a wider or narrower headband adjust the number of SC in the magic circle accordingly. Example, if your headband is wider try 12 SC, if your headband in narrower try 8 SC.

We all crochet with a different tension, while my tube needed to be 70 rows to cover my headband yours may need less or more. Feel free to test it out from time to time to see how it fits!

When your tube is long enough insert your headband and sew closed. This is very similar to closing a hat or amigurumi. Weave your tapestry needle in and out of the stitches until you reach where you started, pull tight to close the circle and secure.






This easy crochet rose pattern is the perfect embellishment to any project. My favorite part is how fast they work up and the pop of color they bring!

You will have 17 V-stitches and 16 chain 1 spaces in-between. (Your work will want to curl, this is ok)





Row 2: Chain 1 and turn, complete 6 DCs in the first V-stitch (this is your first petal), slip stitch into the chain 1 space, *repeat 6 DCs in the V-stitches and slip stitch into the chain 1 spaces for a total of 7 petals, complete the next 6 petals with 5 DCs each and slip stitch in between, the last 3 petals with have 4 DCs in each

Fasten off leaving a long tail to sew it together

I'm excited to introduce you to Marshall the Frog! He's fun, loving and always ready to hop at the thought of an adventure. 

Marshall measures about 13 inches from eyes to feet and works up quickly. He's a sweet gift for a little one or perfect size to make up for a craft fair! If you would like a girl version you can find Mia here!




This is also a great alternative to using safety eyes as they are made with black yarn. 


If you are new to amigurumi check out the tips and materials page to get you started! 

Changing colors can be easy and nearly invisible with amigurumi. If you haven't done it before I have a picture tutorial below with the making of the eyes.


***You will insert your hook into the last stitch of the round for your color and draw a loop just as you would for a normal SC. When you yarn over to complete the stitch you will use your new color instead and pull through your two loops on your hook.


Your color change is complete! Make a slip stitch instead of a SC for your first stitch with your new color to keep it even smoother***
