Free pattern: Chinese New Year Clementine Amigurumi

Eingestellt von nanaliciouz um 14:52

This is my first blog post this year! Can't believe it's February already - and Chinese New Year is almost here ... time flies!

I can hardly wait to celebrate the year of the Snake with my loved ones! Holidays at my parents are the best - always lots of food!

In addition to the red packets my mom used to give me a bunch of clementines, too. I just love them, more than lai sze - they're so sweet and healthy. For me there won't be a CNY without them!

So, if you can't get these fruits at your local supermarket, grab your yarn and hook and make your own Chinese New Year Clementines!


Here's the free pattern for you - have fun and gong hei fat choi!
