Kamsahamnida! (Thank you!)

Psst! Here’s how we do our invisible decreases:

1) Insert your hook into the front loop of the first stitch (2 loops on hook). Do not yarn over.

2) Then insert your hook into the front loop of the next stitch. According to June Gilbank of Planet June, “To do this, you’ll need to swing the hook down first so you can insert the hook under the front loop (3 loops on hook).”

3) Yarn over and draw through all three loops on the hook. Invisible decrease completed!

Molang and some rice balls

6 Sep

Ahn-Nyeong Hah-Seh-Yo!

Meet Molang, the kawaii but grumpy fat rabbit from Korea!

While lettuce may be his favourite food, he’s not at all opposed to nibbling a corner or two of onigiri from time to time.

Meimoirs recently teamed up with Samantha Lee of Eatzy Bitzy for another charaben + amigurumi picnic adventure and had loads of fun witnessing the magic of rice being transformed into tubby little bunnies!
