Hey everyone! How’s your week been going? Me, oh, I’m super busy! I feel like I just forgot that this week was starting or something. I didn’t realize how much I needed to get done last week so now I feel like I’m playing catch up this week… which includes both of my new releases today. Some days I hate being structured and getting stuff done and other weeks I’m glad I drive myself to keep going and keeping this blog going. It’s hard to make patterns week after week, especially because some weeks I receive very rude comments that I need to delete from people not quite demanding more from me but usually telling me I should do something more or more work so that they can be better served by my patterns. If it’s constructive I will take it in and try to do better but often it’s just, well, rude. And with feeling like I’m being pulled in 1000 different directions with work and trying to get ready to move in a couple months (how did I get so much stuff!) I just can’t deal with rude comments at the moment. So, all I’m asking this week is to be nice. Just say nice things to people, not just me but all the time. When you go out, thank people for working hard for you – it doesn’t matter if they do get paid, chances are they don’t make much anyway – and kindness doesn’t cost you a thing.
Wow, sorry about that rant. I guess I as more tired and grouchy than I realized this week. Also, someone made my friend cry at work yesterday because they were rude. Just don’t do that.

So… this week’s new design is a fun ami pattern. Have I talked about how much I love making amis? Because I do. I never did until last year, I made a couple here and there but really didn’t much at all but it all changed last year. I guess, ya make a couple pizzas and then you get hooked. Ha! This week I’m sicking with making holiday themed patterns and Easter is coming up. I don’t really celebrate Easter but I will go out and get some delicious candy, so that works. 😀 I do hope you like this design and make it for someone in your life who might like a fun squishy egg for Easter.

See ya next week!

Materials

Gauge

  • 16 rows x 15 scs = 4”
    Ravelry link

Terms/stitches used

  • Ch: chain
  • St: stitch
  • Slip st: slip stitch
  • Sc: single crochet
  • Sc2tog: single crochet 2 sts together
  • Sc3tog: single crochet 3 sts together

Notes

  • This pattern is worked in 3 sections: the two individual eggs and the closing. The individual eggs are worked back and forth in rows, with a turn at the beginning/ end of the row.  You will then work a border around each egg and to close the two eggs you slip st the two pieces together along the border.
  • The instructions that read (sc2tog + a number) or (a number + sc2tog) mean that you sc2tog the first or last two sts of the row and work scs in the number of stitches indicated.
  • The instructions that read (2x + a number) or (a number + 2x) mean that you sc twice the first or last two sts of the row and work scs in the number of stitches indicated.
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
  • Every stitch in this pattern is a single crochet. The directions will only tell you what color (ie: Color A, Color B, etc…) and the number in the parentheses tells you how many scs to make.
  • The use of bobbins like they did on Hodgepodge Crochet is suggested for this pattern.
  • You will need to know how to create a slipknot on your hook for this pattern.
  • In the example, the inactive yarn is carried behind the active. If this is confusing, you might want to check out the helpful Moogly video on tapestry.
  • Color A is purple/ green (Bernat Super Value in Lavender/ Mint), color B is yellow/ purple (Bernat Super Value in Bright Yellow/ Lavender), and color C is white (misc white in my stash).

Fasten off, weave in your ends.

– Border –
Create a slipknot on your hook with color C and begin on the other side of your first st of Row 1, sc into the next 22 sts, rotate your piece so you’re working up the row ends, sc into the next 46 row ends, rotate your whole piece, sc across the 8 sts from row 46, rotate your whole piece, sc across the next 46 row ends, slip st into the first st – 122 scs

Note: you need to add a border to both eggs. This is where you will do the slip st around for the closing.

– Closing –

Once you’ve got both of your eggs completed, place them one on top of the other. While there isn’t a “right side” to this project make sure to place the less pretty sides of your eggs so that they’re touching (this will be the inside of your ami). Create a slipknot on your hook with color C and begin where you did on the Border, slip st each st of the border on both pieces all the way around your eggs (like you did on the Pizza Amis), pausing 3/4 of the way to fill your ami with stuffing.
Fasten off, weave in all your ends.

 

Tada! There’s a fun little project for you to complete just in time for Easter. I hope you like it and I can’t wait to see photos. Make sure to use the hashtag #DivineDebris so I can find you!

    Sorry to read about the rude people. I know exactly how you feel. I run a page with 13,000 followers on FB and it can be full on at times. I do it because I love it and I love to give other people a lift too.. I recently had to take 2 weeks off due to a serious operation and I received various comments saying “where are you” which were very nice, but one in particular was extremely rude and told me if I intended to run this page, then I should do so, not use excuses to not do it. It was all about her. Anyway, this was far outweighed by a dear lady who asked what the problem was and could she help in any way – good people are always there. Anyway, please know that I love your blog and the patterns you produce. As my offsider (hubby) said “don’t let the bas@#$$% get you down”. Thank you, now my rant is over too…have a great Easter.
