Amigurumi crochet clown

amigurumi clownJan’s amigurumi clown is so cute. Just perfect for a small child. It’s a Pierrot style clown rather than a circus one. The soft colours are lovely but it is the features which make this clown stand out in the crowd. It has been neatly crocheted but that face!! Those eyes! So much expression.

Grandmotherspatternbook has a lot of crocheted and knitted clowns for you to try. They can be colourful or soothing. That is all up to you and your creative mood. Clowns are great thing to make  to use up oddments in your stash .
