The Design Process

When Rico Design reached out to me to design amigurumi patterns for a new color release of their popular Ricorumi yarn, I was thrilled! Ricorumi is one of my all time favorite yarns to crochet amigurumi with. You can check out the post with my full review of Ricorumi dk weight yarn here.

For this booklet, Rico Design wanted a complete crocheted family and so that’s what I designed – an entire family to crochet and love! I start every project with a pencil sketch. Then I take the pencil sketch on to my computer and digitize it in Adobe Illustrator. You can see the digital illustrations of each family member below!

After my sketches and color choices are approved, I crochet a draft doll to try different shaping techniques, colors, and stitches to get the result I want. This step usually involves a lot of frogging aka undoing my stitches! I use the digital sketch while I work and measure my amigurumi as I go to see if the sizing is right. I write the pattern as I crochet my draft doll.

After I finish the draft dolls, I finalize the pattern and work through it again and crochet the final dolls. I correct any typos or errors in the pattern until it’s perfect! All of the dolls you see in this post are actually the drafts because the final ones live with Rico Design! My drafts are usually very close to the final outcome.
