  2. Love this pattern! In the middle of my first one. Great pattern.

    1. Thank you so very much Karen! That is awesome to hear 🙂 I hope you can make a lot of them! 😍

  3. Hello Olive! I love your patterns! I have made some including your cute turkey. I plan on making your pumpkin and candy corn soon, since Halloween is coming up! Thank you for sharing your gorgeous designs!

    1. Hi Sima! Thank you so much for the very kind compliment! ❤️ I am so happy to hear that you’re wanting to make a lot of these fall patterns! That’s so awesome, I am going to release another turkey pattern soon, maybe he will go good with your other turkey 🙂 Thank you so much again Sima, I hope to see some of your amigurumis sometime!

  4. Love this! Do you join with a slip stitch after each row?
    Thanks for this wonderful pattern

    1. Hi Valerie! Thank you so much for your kind words 🙂 I really appreciate it!

      You have a great question! I don’t slip stitch after each round, usually when we work in amigurumi we will continue working around in a circle with no slip stitches joining each round 🙂 (Though that’s definitely not a firm rule, just my observation on working with amigurumis!) If you happen to have any other questions, please feel free to let me know. I’m always happy to help 😍

      Good luck making your candy corn, Valerie! I know you’ll do an awesome job 🙂


  5. I love this pattern! It was so easy and fast to make.

    1. Awww they turned out so cute! I looove their smiles 🙂 I also think the shade of yellow you used is perfect for them! I thought mine looked too neon yellow, I prefer that nice pastel shade you used! Thank you so much for sharing a picture, you’re very talented!


  6. This was so fun to make!! I cannot wait to see what other patterns are available. You are a clever designer!

  7. These are so cute – I’m excited to try them out! I’m still very new to crochet and amigurumi, so I wonder – could you please explain the purpose of working BLO to finish off the yellow? I’ve not encountered that before. Thank you for sharing such a cute pattern!

    1. I think it’s just to keep it flat when the candy corn is finished

  8. I love this pattern! so easy! definitely making more!

  9. I finished this,And so many people wanted me to make it! great website and cute patters!

  10. I made it without the smile and eyes,I was going to use a larger hook,to make a pillow for my husband, but I used the small hook and it turned out adorable 😊

  11. Love this pattern! Turned out so cute. Thanks for sharing and for being very specific with eye, smile and appendage placement instructions. I usually spend way too much time fidling with those.
