I worked up the Owl pattern for the Amigurumi class that I taught (which went really well by the way, first class I ever taught), and then decided to work up a cute little pear for the Holidays.

    Hi! I just finished your carrot pattern. It is very cute and I like the directions. I like the stitch count better than by rows. I usually add the stitch count X rows when working with most patterns. I did notice you do not mention stuffing. I assume the carrot is stuffed. But it did make me think; turn the top into a lid and put Easter surprises inside! So that is what I did. LOL!! Thanks again for the pattern. Gayle
