A Change of Pace: Purple Starfish

Needing a change of pace, and a birthday gift for a friend, I decided to tackle one of the patterns in Amigurumi Knits: Patterns for 20 Cute Mini Knits by Hansi Singh. I blogged about it earlier, but it was time for me to put my money (needles?) where my mouth (blog?) is. 

And this charming little fellow is the result. You can see more of Hansi Singh's designs on Ravelry.

This kind of knitting is such a refreshing change from the mileage that goes into sweater knitting. I love to read "Cast on 15 stitches." Such a friendly small number. I used two yarns for the main colour, Elann Bamboo Classic and Diamond Luxury Collection something-or-other. The contrast colour for the underside is some nameless cotton yarn from my stash. Oh yeah, and this is a great stash buster.

I'm thinking the garlic bulb pattern is next in the queue...
