Getting Festive - Amigurumi Style!

'Tis the season for giving -- although with the economy still on the mend, 'tis also the season for making your gift-giving budget go as far as it can. That's where the Etsy Amigurumi Team comes in to help! The team has been working on a collection of our own free patterns and we're already listing everything from holiday-themed patterns to video game characters!

So, are you ready to grab your hook and yarn and settle down in front of the fire with a cup of coca? If you answered yes, then just imagine this little guy sticking out of someone special's stocking on Christmas morning!

Murray is a pattern for crochet available for download from Dawn Toussaint's blog. You can purchase more of Dawn Toussaint's amazing patterns in her Etsy shop or visit http://dawntoussaint.com/ to learn more about her work.

Next up in the free holiday patterns category is Gurumi O'Snowman by GurumiORama. This little guy has a smile that just makes you want to grab him up and give him a snuggle to end all snuggles!

Make just one.... we dare ya! And when you're done making up a few dozen of these little sweeties, be sure to check out more of GurumiORama's patterns in her Etsy shop!

So, maybe you're a little less on the festive side for the holidays and prefer to leave snowmen and reindeer for someone else. We've got you covered. Nothing says happy holidays to that mobile phone gamer in your life like an angry cardinal! Spend that holiday morning (and beyond) pelting unwary family and friends with The Itsy Bitsy Spider's original pattern!
