Chibi Maruko-chan Crochet Pattern

SHARE

Chibi Maruko-chan is an entertaining anime about Momoko Sakura, a girl in the 3rd grade of elementary school. I loved to watch it when it was still broadcast on national TV station. I made Chibi Maruko-chan amigurumi and it turned out to be really cute!

When making crochet pattern for Chibi Maruko-chan, I was searching in the internet and found Chibi Maruko-chan Bahasa Indonesia channel on Youtube. So I watched a few episodes. Very nostalgic!

Chibi Maruko-chan anime is based on the manga by Momoko Sakura. Many stories are inspired by incidents from her own life, and some characters are based on her family and friends.
