I am a big fan of the narwhal, or the unicorn of the sea.  This almost mythical looking creature is just so cool that I had to make one for the baby's room.

Designing your own amigurumi can be fun and it's not that hard.  All you have to do is break your piece into elements.  Amigurumi are composed of spheres, half spheres, tubes, and cones.  I broke down my narwhal into the head, half sphere, body, tube, tail, cone, fins and tail pieces were half sphere, cone and tube, and the horn was a tube.

I first sketched out the design and then made notes as I went.  The sketch is useful because you can refer back to it when calculating how many rows, for example i wanted the body and tail to be roughly the same amount of rows, whereas the head was about 1/3 of the size of the body or the tail.  

I've included the pattern as well as a picture of my design and some of the elements.

The Arms and the tail pieces are the same, but one is connected at the rounded part (beginning)

this is gorgeous! I'm only 13 so I'm only a basic amigurumi maker but wow I'd love to be able to do this! is it easy?
Thank you! The hardest part is the horn the rest of the shapes are basic and the horn is only harder because it's harder to see where you put your needle but not impossible, maybe try the horn first and the rest will be easier :)<br>Good luck!
Oooh, so cute!
Thanks! I love how he goes with the sea themed baby swing. I almost made him a pirate narwhal, but then I thought that might be cuter on another animal, I might have to make another entry since I'm decorating the baby's room with sea and pirate stuff :)
