Lupo the Lamb

Hello there!

Today I’m showing you some quick pictures of Lupo, not the second, but the third Lalylala doll I made. Picture quality is not great, these were taken with my iPad since my camera appears to be broken 😦

  The third, and so far, my favorite.

As I said in my post about Bina the Bear, Lalylala’s patterns are very clear and user-friendly. Also, they have a cute lay-out and are available in multiple languages!

One of the things that surprised me when I made Bina was the fact that even though it was the biggest doll I’d ever made, it didn’t take that much longer than a regular amigurumi. Maybe it’s just because I’m so excited about these dolls, but I felt like they were all done quite fast.

With Lupo it took a little longer, of course. Those bobble stitches are a lot of work!

If you want to make your own Lupo. Check out Lalylala’s website, there are so many dolls to choose from. The patterns are not free.

If you’d rather not spend money on a pattern, there is also a page on the website called ‘minis & mods‘ where you can find free patterns based of Lalylala patterns, but by other people!

See you soon, crochet on!

(He’s so cute!)


Bina the Bear 

Hi there!

In July, I got a wonderful present from one of my friends, who is a fellow crocheter. She bought me a bunch of patterns as a late birthday present. And seven of these patterns are Lalylala patterns!

The first time I discovered Lalylala and her dolls, I immediately fell in love, I’d been wanting to try them ever since. If you don’t know what Lalylala dolls are, take a look at this website.

I immediately got started on the first one: Bina the Bear.

These dolls are the biggest crochet dolls I have ever made, so I was amazed when I finished the first one so quickly!

I absolutely love my Bina. I made her with thicker yarn and used bigger eyes because I thought my bear would be a little bigger than the original. Since the yarn stretched a lot, that turned out to be false, but I sort of like the bigger eyes!

The pattern is very good. It has clear instructions and a very cute lay-out. It has pictures and drawings as well, which is always a good thing! 😉

As for the scarf, I did not follow the pattern. I learned how to knit when I was younger, and I knitted one baby blanket, but after that I stopped and I forgot how to do it. I decided to crochet a scarf, but I wanted it to be a little special because just making a long strip is boring and I don’t like the way that looks at all. I did some improvising and I’m quite happy with it.

I had a lot of fun making this one. I already made two other Lalylala dolls as well, and I hope to show you them soon!

If you would like to make a doll like this and you can’t or don’t want to buy a pattern, there is a new page on the website called ‘minis & mods’ where you can find free patterns, made by other people, based off Lalylala patterns. There are some really cute ones out there!
