Check out my updated Amigurumi page featuring seven of my knits from “Amigurumi Knits” by Hansi Singh
The best knitting book that I have come across so far!
So I started my Jellyfish at the start of July and I am only nearly finished it now I only have a few more things to do!
Here are images of it so far! Completed Jelly photos soon
I had to pick up stitches from near the cast on edge of the Jelly so that I could continue to knit his bum ( if a jelly has a bum)
This is what the Jelly looked like after I finished knitting in the round after stuffing him with fiber fill.
All I have to do now is add on his arms!
I used roughly about five or six average sized bags for this project.
You can use any bags for knitting obviously some are nicer looking than others and some are less tacky than others!
After cutting off the top and the bottom, lie bag flat in front of you with the open edges at the sides (after cutting off the top and the bottom it is like a tube). Roll up from one of the ends that is not cut like in the picture below.
After this stage there is a way of cutting the bag , kinda like the way you peel an orange in one go.
I got the inspiration for this technique from a book I borrowed from the library, the projects in it are a little tacky – which is easily done when knitting with plastic. But there must be a way to knit things with plastic in a non tacky way!
I also tried recently to fuse plastic together but I do not have the right type of baking paper ( greaseproof paper does not work very well and sticks to the plastic)
Since about November I have been knitting so many patterns from Hansi Singh book Amigurumi Knits.
The main reason I love these patterns is that they need very little sewing up and mainly picking up stitches instead. I’m not a fan of sewing up and I have a habit of leaving things unfinished for months. Go to my new page on Amigurumi and I also have most of my projects on Ravelry too
