WHO IS ROLY-POLY AXOLOTL?
Tiamo – the Valentine Axololt amigurumi is the first design inside a cool collection named “Roly-Poly Mystery Collection” – a year-long collaboration between Anvi’s Granny and Hooked By Kati.
It is my big pleasure to work with my crochet friend, Kati of Hooked by Kati, to introduce to you the cool chubby animals each month! The coolest thing: all the patterns are no-sew amigurumi designs, which are great for busy crocheters who don’t want to struggle with sewing tasks.
And like the name of the collection, you don’t know which animals will be there There are some real animals and some fantasy creatures, but I promise, they are all cute and fun to crochet!
Each month, on the first Friday of the month, a new pattern will be released! I am so excited to show you all the fabulous animals and even more excited to see your makes from the patterns.
This month’s mystery animal – Tiamo the axolotl, was designed by me – Joy of Anvi’s Granny.
