Be amazed as one dozen zodiacal symbols spring from one basic amigurumi pattern. They represent the characteristics of each particular sign, with species-specific features of felt and embroidery. According to legend, the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac cemented their stature by being the first to cross the finish line of a race presided over by Buddha. Ana Paula Rimoli’s playful stuffed toys, all made with Lion Brand Yarn’s ‘Vanna’s Choice,’ are single crocheted in the round. The snake’s body differs, as do the arms and legs of the snake and rooster; otherwise, the silhouettes for each are exactly the same, with species-specific features of felt and embroidery.”
