It was great to finally be able to share Nola the little girl amigurumi crochet pattern. I remember my first human-shaped amigurumi was a little girl in a red hood, but I didn’t write down the pattern. At that time, I had not been diligent in writing the amigurumi pattern I had made ;p
After all this time, I had the desire again to make amigurumi in human form. Then be Maya. At that time, I didn’t take the step by step’s photo. So, I re-created Maya crochet pattern with a few improvements. Then Nola, Maya’s sister, was born 😀
Hopefully Nola gives happiness to you all. Happy crocheting.
