This was the pattern that convinced me to purchase Simply Amigurumi: 10 Crochet Projects. I received a request for more play food for a pretend kitchen for Christmas. While I have some food patterns, this cheeseburger pattern was the best I have seen so far.
The pattern calls for Bernat Satin, Caron Simply Soft, and Red Heart's Soft. I am in a destashing mode and I used Caron One Pound, Red Heart Super Saver, and Vanna's Choice that I had on hand.
What I found original about this pattern is the way the items were put together. The cheese was not made as a traditional square, which is what I had anticipated. The burger was created in one piece but had an upper and lower piece to give the burger depth without stuffing it. The lettuce was a fun pattern to work on and the tomatoes were different from what I previously seen.
I still have not found a burger bun pattern I like. I pinned the buns together and this helped with shaping them a bit.
One criticism I do have about this pattern is that it does not have all the directions written out. Some people will state this is the sign of a lazy crocheter, but I like having my directions written out line by line. I am not a fan of a math project in the middle of my crocheting. I ended up writing out the directions for the increases and decreases in the book for future reference.
