Not everyone is a sweets person, but luckily you don’t have to be to love this weeks free pattern on the Yarn Punk Blog. We bring back one of our OG guests this week. Let us re-welcome Melissa of Crafty Kitty Crochet . This weeks pattern is great for practicing an amigurumi basic- spheres! What makes this extra special is turning those little round balls to something so kawaii! These crochet cake pops are exceptionally sweet, without the extra calories. Great for those who are on a diet, and also a beginner trying their hand with amigurumi. Let us say hello to Melissa!
Hi Crafty Kitty Crochet
Hi, I’m Melissa of Crafty Kitty Crochet! My blog is about having fun with crochet and making all kinds of unique projects. Some things I specialize in are from food-themed accessories to amigurumi plushies! I began crocheting when I was seven years old, and later discovered my passion for amigurumi. This started me down a path of making pop-culture themed crochet projects. Which I started to sell online and at comic book conventions. I was even lucky enough to be featured in the New York Times and Houston Chronicle for my crocheted critters!
My love for quirky fashion / toys and crochet would eventually inspire me to create my crochet blog, which is where I now share my free patterns with others who enjoy fun crochet projects just like I do. I love designing patterns for everything from pizza hats to 80’s workout outfits to mermaid accessories! And I never seem to run out of ideas for my next crazy crochet projects, so I have a feeling the best is yet to come!
