Crochet Sushi Amigurumi and Pattern

Posted on: June 26, 2010

Here it is, the first thing I’m going to post for sale in my etsy shop!

I was kind of inspired to design this cute amigurumi from a recent trip to Hawaii, after eating lots of yummy yummy sushi (the creme sauce marinated salmon sashimi (or poke really?) at Poke Stop was amaaaaazing), and also partly just because I love sushi and remember a friend had a plushie sushi pillow that I thought was the coolest thing. I’m actually a pretty picky eater, and use to only eat the sushi rolls with vegetables not raw fish, but I finally tried nigiri sushi (the kind with the slice of raw fish on top) a few years ago and at first it took getting used to but now I love love love it ^_^. Favorites are tamago (egg omelet), spicy tuna, and salmon.

Oh but anyway back to the knitting…the crochet sushi amigurumi uses basic beginner crochet stitches, mostly single crochets, and the pattern has full detailed instructions for each piece and how to assemble it (including notes about how I like to sew the pieces together and weave in the yarn tails). I’m listing the one sushi ami I crocheted while designing the pattern, but I think I will only resell the pattern not make more amis to sell since the actual ami takes longer than it looks to make (~4.5 hours just straight crochet+assembly) so I’m not sure I’d be able to sell it at a good price.
