I made this cute firefly for my cousin’s son when he turned one year old last year.

This was my first major amigurumi project, but thanks to PlyuskiToysPattern’s amazing designs, it went well. Here I had to work with changing colors, pipe cleaners, safety eyes, filling and wooden balls.

I have not mentioned it before but it is extremely important in projects like this to use some kind of Marker to keep track of all the turns you work. You can use a plastic safety pin like I do or a piece of yarn in a different color to keep track. I also use matches when I have to count turns if there are many, like here in legs or an arm.

You buy this Firefy pattern at Etsy

I use Organic Cotton 50 g, see “where to buy it” under Menu
