Hello friends. Today I will share the second and last pattern with you. I actually do research for you during the day, but I cannot prepare articles every day. Forgive me.
Our second amigurumi today is a cow. Don’t be fooled that it looks small. It is a very difficult model. It has very fine details. I guess that it is quite difficult to make especially the face and body part.
As amigurumi, the cow amigurumi is not a preferred model. I know that. However, it is very useful for your child to recognize different animals. In this way, your child’s love of nature will increase. It can also be encouraging for children who do not drink milk.
You can use many different colors in this amyguri. Vitchuk_vv that creates the amigurumi. You can access the Instagram profile from this link. He likes to make very detailed and small amigurums.
If we talk about colors, I would like to try white as the main color. If you make an amigurumi like this, please share it with me.
