I jumped on the yarn Yoshi bandwagon and crocheted a little amiibo! A friend requested a purple Yoshi and gave me the chip from their actual Yoshi amiibo to put into this one.
I free-handed him and wrote the pattern as I went. To add the amiibo chip, I stuck it to his bottom and sewed a piece of felt over it.
I think he turned out pretty adorable and is a great use as a real amiibo! The official yarn Yoshi amiibo will be released later this year, but it is also knitted. I think crocheted is better 😛
Also! I am giving one of these yarn yoshi’s away! The contest will be hosted on my instagram but you can also comment here for an extra entry! The winner will receive a handmade yoshi in the color of their choice, but will NOT include the amiibo chip.
