8 Crocheted Foods for a Delicious Amigurumi Potluck

I love potlucks! I love the smorgasbord of food, and I look forward to finding my favorite dish there: deviled eggs. Someone’s usually kind enough to make them, and I always try to justify taking more than one (surely there’s someone in the group who doesn’t want theirs!).

My boyfriend, on the other hand, hates potlucks. He’s concerned about the sanitary conditions of food prep (he’s seen some very crazy stuff, so I can’t fault him here), so I encourage him to just eat what we bring and skip the rest.

We can forgo all this worry by having a crochet potluck instead. The Craft Yarn Council is organizing an amigurumi potluck, and everyone is invited! Grab a hook, some yarn, and your laptop or cell phone and join us as we celebrate this delicious event.

What Is an Amigurumi Potluck?

For the month of July 2017, the Craft Yarn Council has created a campaign called the “Crafty Not Bored” Amigurumi Potluck. They are encouraging crocheters, knitters, and yarn lovers to make and share their food-related yarn dishes on social media with the hashtag #craftynotbored.

We have some tasty food patterns at Interweave that you might enjoy making and sharing. This menu of crocheted food items includes items to wear or use around the house and are sure to get your creative juices flowing.
