If you saw my post about Vietnam here, then you might have fallen in love with some of the amazing amigurumi that I came across just as much as I did.
Here’s a summary of the Top 5 patterns that I’ve found that closely resemble some of the wooly marvels that I came across on my travel across this famous country.

#1 – ‘Penn the Penguin’ by Grace and Yarn
Three words that would describe Grace and Yarn’s whole menagarie of amigurumi are ‘sooooo freakin’ adorable’! Among their gorgeous patterns is Penn, a penguin not so different to the two I found on the streets of Ho Chi Minh’s night-market. The only difference here is that Penn seems to have dressed himself up with some extra-special Christmas attire and found himself a girlfriend! Find the pattern here.
#2 – Moose by Carolina Guzman
This moose stood out amongst the fray at a shop in Hanoi and I just had to take a snap! Complete with a little blue scarf, the only difference between the original and his Vietnamese cousin is the light blue body- a stark contrast from Carolina’s usual rainbow-theme. Find the pattern here.
#3 – Kisslock Purse by Craft Passion
I love the teal colour of this purse and Craft Passion have a lovely imitation that you can whip up in no time. Maybe try your favourite cotton yarn, like Patons 100% Cotton 4 ply. Just a frame and a few stitches and you can have a beautiful accessory like this one! Find the pattern here.
#4 – Mia the Frog by Grace and Yarn
What can I say? I just can’t stay away from Grace and Yarn’s page of amigurumi treats! Have a go at hooking up Mia (or maybe even her brother Marshall) who’s crazy relatives I found in Ho Chi Minh popping their heads out of a beautifully embroidered box in a shop window. Find Mia here and Marshall here.
#5 – Rainbow Cuddles Unicorn by One Dog Woof
If you’ve ever seen Despicable Me, then this unicorn will seem oddly familiar. This one is JUST. SO. FLUFFY. too! You’ll want to snuggle up to him as soon as your yarn is off the hook. One Dog woof have a great pattern that you can find here.
I love these patterns and I’d love to see your versions of my Vietnamese friends! Make sure to tag me on Instagram @lovealyuk or #lovealyuk
