    Thank you for the pattern! I am really looking good forward to making Yoshi. I love Yoshi!

  2. Margaret Garland says:

    Love him! I’m on an ami making binge just now. So your little guy is now on my to-be-made list. Thank you.

  3. Can’t wait to make these. The Grandsons already want one. Thanks for posting the pattern.

  4. JoAnn Garland Scarborough says:

    Thank you so much for the pattern, this is just precious.

  5. Rachel Davies says:

    You rock! Is it hard to make a pattern? I have done some free-form crochet before, but not that I could ever reproduce. Thanks for taking the time to troubleshoot through making this little guy and sharing the results!

  6. Jen Z says:

    Awesome pattern, working it up right now for a Christmas gift. Just one little thing I found wrong… Yoshi doesn’t have a shell on his back, he’s wearing a saddle for Mario. I modified mine a bit to look more like a saddle. Other than that, my son is going to love this! Thanks so much for posting!

    • stella says:

      Dude it’s a shell. Thanks for the great tutorial…I suck at amigurumi but mine actually looks like yours LOL

  7. Sharon P Locking says:

    Hi Ami,

    Great pattern, my grandson actually asked for a yarn yoshi, and I am happy to make him one.
    Having some trouble with the feet, on Row 6b, to find the back stitch on row 5, is inside the shoe, that isn’t working for me? Mine never curled over like yours is in the picture? Don’t know what I have done wrong?

    • Lori says:

      6a I did in the back loop, and 6b I did in the front loop (opposite from what is listed in the pattern) and it turned out looking like the picture.

  8. Sharon P Locking says:

    Hi Ami,

    Great pattern, my grandson actually asked me to make him a yarn yoshi. I am happy to do it.
    However I am having some difficulty on the feet Row 6b, finding the back stitch on row 5, which would be coming from the inside of the shoe? Mine did roll over on the top like yours did? Any suggestions?

    Sharon

    • Lori says:

      6a I did in the back loop, and 6b I did in the front loop (opposite from what is listed in the pattern) and it turned out looking like the picture.

  9. A says:

    “Round 7: Sc in next 4 st, 2 sc in next 6 st, sc in next 8 st – 24 sc.
    Round 8: Sc in each st around.
    Round 9: Sc in next 16 st, sc2tog 4 times – 18 sc.”

    If I decrease 4 times wouldn’t that be 20, instead of 8?

  10. Lori says:

    You just made me the best mom in the world, according to my seven year old. Thank you! It turned out so great- your pattern was wonderful.

    • Lori says:

      My little boy did note, though, that the spikes should be orange. {rolling eyes} I think he’s cute no matter what!

      • Ami Amour says:

        You are the best mom for creating handmade goodies made with love for your child! Hehe and your boy has an eye for details! 😀

  11. KO says:

    Cute! How tall is the finished product? I saw the big Yoshi and was hoping for that size.
    Thanks!

    • Ami Amour says:

      This one is a small one and is only about 6 in tall. The larger Yoshi pattern is available in both my Etsy or Ravelry shop.

  12. Paige says:

    I’m confused about the head section round 10. What does that mean you will have 18 sc? Could you maybe post a picture of what it would look like after that step??
