DIY: How to crochet a baby rudolph-the-reindeer amigurumi
Somehow it became a tradition that I post a last minute tutorial shortly before a holiday. So today it is a small Rudolph, which you can make just in time for Christmas if you start quickly.

Today, we go on with our black dragon CAL. As there are some choices to make, I have to explain some things before we go on with the body. You can either use safety joints for arms and legs or sew them on our crochet them onto the body directly. If you choose one of the two latter, there will be nothing to be aware of, so you may skip this and crochet on directly. But if you want to use safety joints you’ll have to leave the body open so you can insert the joints after having done arms …
