I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

Its ultra-cute rodent time!

While we all love bunnies, little chicks and fluffy lambs, hamsters are also some of the cutest, most adorable critters out there. In fact an amigurumi hamster is a perfect addition to your kids’ softie menagerie. Better still, there are many highly adaptable patterns for them, so that it’s very easy to modify each one to make it super personal for every kid. Of course, we would be remiss if we didn’t also mention that these are budget friendly patterns and don’t require a lot in the way of yarn. In fact, each of these projects is also a good stash buster for using up yarn ends. That said, we just know you will fill up the freshly made space with new skeins. Alas, that is the thorny way of the crocheter :D.
