Ideafix amigurumi free pattern – The Nomad Knot

Ideafix amigurumi free pattern

Happy to share today this beautiful West Highland White terrier amigurumi pattern! Ideafix is the best friend of Obelix and, together with Asterix, they live amazing adventures together!

As a big fan myself of Asterix and Obelix, I need to make this tribute for them! My father is a huge fan and I grew up reading their comics. Until today, the best gift to give to my father is a new edition of the Adventures of Asterix and Obelix!

You can check out the Asterix pattern and Obelix pattern already up. Panoramix, Caesar, and Cleopatra are coming next.

Enough said! Here it goes! I hope you enjoy this little creation!

For a low cost (4 USD), add a free and printable pattern, with a photo tutorial, you can find it in Ravelry here!

Before we start, I will leave it here a couple of helpful tutorial links in case you need further help creating your beautiful little creature!

Pin it for later!
