I can crochet, not especially well, but I can follow amigurmi patterns and such. Here are some of the cute little patterns I followed to make some animals.

And the best little rabbit pattern (WITH A MUSTACHE!) ~ http://sheepdogsfleece.blogspot.com/2010/08/mr-bunny.html The pattern was really simple, but it didn’t list a hook size. I used a G hook, but the photos look like a larger gauge than what I ended up with… Either way, I’m making a white one as a gift for my friend.
