Serenity was the first crochet fantasy amigurumi pattern of Esther Emaar’s that I purchased – just about a year ago. I originally found the Serenity pattern on Ravelry and just fell in love with her and knew that I had to have the pattern and make one.
I finished my first Serenity a year ago in April and I just finished my second Serenity a week or so ago and I have to admit the difference is amazing! (I’ll show you pictures in just a couple of paragraphs I promise!)
Originally, I was very concerned about child safety standards here in the U.S. especially where the eyes on Esther’s creations are concerned, so I crocheted eyelashes using #10 cotton – and I’ve never been truly happy with the end result.
In the last year, I’ve made several of Esther’s Fantirumi’s and have come to the firm conclusion that yes, while these are toys, they certainly are not toys intended for small children (3 and under) and should be given as gifts to older children (10 and older) as more of a collectible.
So, here you go, these are the two Serenity’s that I’ve made. The grey one on the left was my original Serenity, while the white Serenity on the right is the one that I just finished.
Both of these Serenity’s shown above were made with Bernat Baby Sport yarn and a size F (3.75 mm) hook.
