Amigu­isumi love

Simply Crochet - - Contents -

We had a good old chin­wag with Jen­nifer San­tos, the Swe­den-based amigurumi stitcher be­hind Su­per Cute De­sign. After spot­ting her bright and oh-so smi­ley cre­ations on Instagram, we just had to find out more about them.

She told us: “I have al­ways loved cre­at­ing stuff. Cro­chet en­ables me to live out my cre­ativ­ity – I love that you can have an idea of what you want to make and then be able to cre­ate it with just a hook and some yarn. Even though most of the time it doesn't come out quite as I planned, I re­ally en­joy the process of cre­at­ing and I DO love yarn!

I make and sell amigurumi pat­terns. As I have a huge swee­t­ooth and am such a sucker for cute and colour­ful stuff, I make lots of yummy rain­bow things with happy faces.

I be­lieve that cre­ative in­spi­ra­tion can be found every­where! I've found in­spi­ra­tion be­fore from my chil­dren, from car­toons, even from the gro­cery store. Ha ha!

My favourite cro­chet make? I tend to like the thing I made most re­cently the best! If I had to choose just one thing, I think it would have to be my amigurumi gin­ger­bread men." You can see Jen­nifer's lat­est cre­ations on Instagram @su­per­cut­edesign and buy pat­terns at­per­cut­edesign­
