A little message from me:
Hey, fellow crocheters!
It’s me, Harumi Levenhagen, or you can call me just Lumy. When I first published this pattern, I released it by the brand Haru Leven, so if you find other old versions around, don’t worry, it’s the same thing! I went through a few challenges in my personal life in the last couple of years, which made me decide to withdraw for a while from the internet. But now, I think it’s the time for me to come back to my passions, and amigurumi is one of my big ones! So, I’m making all my old patterns available once again! And, of course, planning to start working on new ones!
Thank you for supporting my designer path! This community has always shown so much love for my creations over those years! It always meant a lot to me and encouraged me to follow my creativity!

For this project you’ll need:

Materials:

  • 1.5mm crochet hook and adequate yarn for this hook size in the colours peach, white and golden, or your choice of colour for the skin, the wings, the shorts and the halo
  • 2mm crochet hook and adequate yarn for this hook size in the colours yellow and pink or your choice of colour for the hair and the heart
  • 7mm safety eyes or buttons
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry needle
  • Stuffing fibre

Yarn information:
For this project, I used cotton yarn Bella (Fios Pingouin, TEX 370, 5ply, 12WPI) with a 2mm crochet hook and cotton yarn Anne (Círculo Produtos, TEX 295, Ne 4/2, 2ply, 14WPI) with a 1.5mm crochet hook.

Size: approximately 16cm. The actual size of the finished item may change depending on the materials used. If you use different sizes of hook and yarn, make sure you adapt the size of the eyes too.

My abbreviations (based on US terms):

  • MR - magic ring
  • ST - stitch
  • CH - chain
  • SL ST - slip stitch
  • SC - single crochet
  • INC - increase (2sc in the same st)
  • DEC - decrease (sc 2 together)
  • HDC - half double crochet
  • DC - double crochet
  • HTR - half treble crochet
  • TR - treble crochet
  • (STITCH)xNUMBER - number of times you have to repeat that stitch

Tips:

  • If you don’t know how to do one of the crochet stitches used in this pattern you can search on YouTube for “name of the stitch + tutorials” and you’ll find some very easy and detailed video tutorials for beginners.
  • The rows that don’t mention to do a chain between them are worked in continuous rounds, so it’ll be easier if you use a stitch marker to mark every last stitch from the row.
