I hosted my first CAL in December 2018 for a small crowd of amigurumi enthusiasts. Ralf the moose was the first amigurumi we crocheted together and he stole many hearts that December. Since then my annual crochet alongs have grown rapidly and over 5000 people have participated so far.
The Happy Amigurumi Club is a positive and inspiring community for amigurumi makers who like to crochet and discover new amigurumi designs together with other like-minded people.
The goal is to inspire and encourage you (and me) to grab that hook and weave in those ends regularly. Which will boost our creativity, decrease our stress levels and in the long run make us happier crocheters.
Click here to join the Happy Amigurumi Club and the crochet along.The secret PDF pattern is divided into 6 pieces + assembling instructions. The parts will be sent to your inbox 1-2 days apart and we'll wrap up the crochet along with a live assembling party on Thursday the 13th of July. There will also be a giveaway that you automatically participate in when you publish a picture of your finished amigurumi in the Facebook group or on Instagram #garnknutencalparty.
The July CAL 2023 is hosted inside the Happy Amigurumi Club and is FREE for members. Click here to join the club and the crochet along!

The choice of yarn and hook is completely up to you and your personal taste, but I recommend using an environmentally friendly yarn or something from your stash.

KEEP THIS IN MIND
- Make sure you crochet pretty tight all the way, so you don’t get large holes between the stitches. If you crochet loosely, I suggest you should test a smaller hook size (ex. 2.50 mm) so that the stuffing doesn‘t show once you‘ve filled the toy.
- All parts will be worked in spirals (if the pattern doesn’t say otherwise) - so you don‘t have to think about closing the rounds.
- A stitch marker can help you keep track of the beginning of your rows.
