I’m holding a crochet along! This means you have an opportunity to join me and a group of other crocheters for the next 3 months to work on the same project, at the same time. We’ll be making 3 safari themed amigurumi animals designed specifically for this event. Which animals, you ask? To keep it exciting, this is a secret you’ll only find out once you’ve completed them. Rest assured, they will be cute and fun!

  • Join a community of other passionate crocheters – get access to a brand new private lilleliis Facebook group where you can network with me and other crocheters that joined the CAL. Share your progress, ask questions, get support, find inspiration, and have fun!

TIME: March 1 – May 31, 2020

PLACE: Your cozy home! You`ll be automatically added to a specific Safari CAL mailing list, and the materials will be sent to your email address over the course of 3 months. We’ll use a private Facebook group to share our progress and communicate.


SCHEDULE AND TIMING: We’ll work on one new animal each month. The material will be spread over 3 weeks, leaving the last week of each month for people to catch up or rest. At the end of the CAL you will receive all 3 patterns in PDF format to store them in your pattern library.

SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate skill level required

STITCHES AND TECHNIQUES: slip stitch, chain stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, French knot, working in the ring, working around the chain, working in the back loops, sewing fabric to amigurumi.

We`ll be using DK / 8 ply / no 3 weight merino wool in 5 colors (yellow, white, black, brown, gray).

In addition you`ll need 3 mm crochet hook (D/3; UK 10), polyester fiberfill stuffing, 3 pairs of black 12 mm safety eyes, cotton fabric + some thread for sewing, and of course scissors, darning and embroidery needle and pins.

A thorough guide for choosing the materials for this Cal will be sent to your email address after you buy the course.

Why does the CAL last 3 month?

The course is spread over 3 month to leave enough time for the rest of your crafty projects. This way people who have a full-time job or children to take care of can also participate.

Which animals are we making?

To make things a little more exciting, I’ve decided to keep this a secret. However, the theme of this CAL is Safari, so feel free to make your guesses!

Can I participate if I`m a beginner in amigurumi?

No, sorry. This CAL is for an intermediate skill level amigurumi makers or for those who`ve made some easier projects and now want to develop their skills.

Can I join the CAL later?

The group will be closed on February 28, 2020. Unfortunately you cannot join later. But you can participate in some other CAL in the future.

Can I simply buy the patterns online?

Not at the moment, but all 3 amigurumi safari patterns will be added to my webshop after we`ve finished them during this course.

I am Mari-Liis – an amigurumi enthusiast of more than 10 years, and one of just a million Estonians living in the whole wide world. I’ve written 3 internationally published amigurumi books that have been translated into 5 languages (“Magical Amigurumi Toys”, “Cuddly Amigurumi Toys”, “Lovable Amigurumi Toys”), and I’ve created tens of original patterns and crochet tutorials that have been completed by tens of thousands of people. I’m on a mission to make the world a little more joyous through the power of amigurumi.

What people are saying about my work

“Great pattern! Well written, easy to follow, with beautiful photos. I`m an advanced beginner and breezed through this in a couple nights.”


“Can highly recommend any pattern by Lilleliis. Easy to follow instructions – I have purchased many of them.”

“Hands down the best written pattern I´ve seen in a long time. Very well done. Even explained where the limbs were sewn and how the eyes are done which is rare IMO. Can`t wait to make more from this artist.”


“Awesome pattern as usual. Never disappoints :)”
