Remember in november I wrote that I´m making a donkey. Well here it is. The pattern is from the Zoomigurumi book and is written by Dutch designer Pii_Chii. Zoomigurumi 1 was published in 2012 and it also includes my Pony girl pattern.
This was an interesting project because it`s been years since I used anyone elses amigurumi pattern! Actually I´ve done it only a couple of times in my life.
I made my donkey using Rowan Handknit Cotton, one of my favourite yarns. The color matched perfectly with the natural shade of the donkey. I made a few small adjustments. The major one is the mane for which I didn`t use fuzzy yarn.
Thanks to this project I discovered new things in me. Now I know that concerning amigurumi I am an impatient and not too collaborative person. I did my best to stick to the pattern, however I had hard times on motivating myself to do that. I guess I simply enjoy the creating process too much, so I prefer to invent new toys myself :)
