p5

It’s the final day of featured designers in the Big Holiday Giveaway (you can still enter until 11/20/2014).  The final prize, kindly offered by June Gilbank of PlanetJune, is a pattern of the winner’s choice up to a $7 value.  Did you know June created the Amigurumi Discworld from the Terry Pratchett books?  Click on the Discworld below to read all about it.

PlanetJune has more than just adorable (and some lifelike) amigurumi.  She also offers free patterns and crochet tutorials, everything from making a magic ring to invisible decreasing.  The tutorials are available in photos or video too!  My favorite part of her website is the Amigurumi Troubleshooter.  What a great idea!  It can help you figure out why your amigurumi isn’t coming out the way you thought it would.

PlanetJune also takes pattern commissions for new animals to be added to her animal patterns already available.  Make a pledge toward that animal’s pattern, and when it reaches the goal, June will create the pattern!  Ingenious!  Here are some commissions that have already been completed, and you can click on this photo to read more about her commissions:
