Mijn Grote Familie (My big family) is my last project. It’s about Minus, a 12 year old amigurumi kid, and his relatives and friends. In my shop you’ll find their pdf patterns, DIY kits including everything you need to crochet them, the finished dolls and more surprises….

Conchita is 15 years old and she is Minus’ neighbour. She is a shy and quiet girl. She likes staying at home and knitting. She learnt how to knit as a child with her granny and she has not stopped doing it since then. Crocheting quilts is what she likes the most but she also knits jumpers for her family and friends often.

Conchita has always been very attached to her granny. When she is older she wants to be a baker as she is; she just love everything her grandma does. Every Sunday she teaches her a new recipe: it could be a pie, cookies… Conchita looks at her very carefully; every single ingredient, every single movement is important. She is clear about it! When she gets older she will have a bakery and she will name it after her grandma.

Conchita’s pattern is a 10 pages PDF that includes the written instructions to make your own amigurumi as well as a lot of pictures of the doll itself and step by step tutorials. It also includes an introduction with special stitches.

This is a quite easy pattern, but it has a few special features that make them different, like the trunk-shaped nose that you can move as you please and the embroideries of the snout and the shirt, also with instructions and step by step photos. And the little cute ears… I must admit that I just love them…
