About

Hi, I’m Jennifer Wang – an absolute knit and crochet amigurumi enthusiast.
I design uber-cute toy patterns for beginners and advanced beginners, with a focus on clear, simple instructions, plus plenty of pictures to help you out!

I admit, it’s scary to put your work out there to be judged by others, but I just can’t help myself. I want to make, even if it’s just to keep my hands busy. I want to create new, beautiful things and to share this magical ability with others.

More than that, I want knitters and crocheters to fall in love with the idea that they can turn their hobby into something truly inspiring, and that their gifts are capable of touching lives and transforming hearts around the world.

A beautiful handmade toy can make all the difference, and there are so many wonderful movements dedicated to providing toys for specific causes.  For example:

  • Last Cuddles Bear Project provides miniature bears and other tiny toys to be used in free photographic shoots for angel babies. The bears are given to the parents as a gesture of love, and provide a small means of comfort during this devastating time.
  • Knot Forgotten aims to share the love of Jesus with children of the persecuted church by creating and delivering hand-knit and crocheted toys. The group was founded as a response to the Syrian refugee crisis, and has since expanded to include children from all over the world. The message is one of love and joy, and to let each child know he or she is not forgotten.

Moving forward, I want to highlight movements and stories like these in addition to selling and sharing patterns and telling my own stories. I am passionate about the power of handmade toys, and I believe that by creating dolls and sharing what I love and believe in, I can reach and enrich the lives of people around the world.

I am inspired by makers who wake up every day with a mission, and who live their lives with passion and purpose. This is something I strive for, (although I often fall short!). My main focus is on thinking of ways I can use my gifts to serve others in a way that glorifies God. For this reason, I plan for my designs to reflect my values of love (1 Corinthians 13) and empowerment, with a special focus on women and children, plus related charities and causes.

I can design. I can create. But I should never lose sight of what is most important to me, and that is my relationship with my Saviour. It is through Him alone that I am able to bear anything – be it good fruit or the weight of my own cross.

Wishing you much love and success on your toy making journey!

Jennifer Wang

  1. Hi Jennifer,
    I have been working on the Knot Forgotten Knit Monkey pattern, but I can no longer access the pattern. Is there any way I could get access to the pattern so that I can finish? Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    1. Hi, Kelly! Yes, the KF Monkey was temporarily removed, as it no longer fits the sizing guidelines for Knot Forgotten. I’ve sent you an email with the old pattern so that you’re still able to finish. Happy New Year to you, too! (PS: please check your spam folder if it doesn’t appear) 🙂

    2. Hi, I’m looking for the Knot Forgotten Monkey and Owl patterns, but can’t find them/unavailable. I have knit loads of the bear ones, can you help???

    3. Hi, Lynn! I’m so sorry, the old, larger Owl and Monkey patterns have been discontinued since they no longer fit the Knot Forgotten size guidelines. I currently have the smaller owl available on the blog here, but the monkey is not yet ready.

    4. Thank you Jennifer, thats a shame wanted to complete the collection. Will hope that the monkey will be available soon. 🙂

    1. Hi, Elizabeth. I’m so happy you love the new knitted designs! The printable version of the patterns will become available soon through the Knot Forgotten website 🙂

  2. do you sell the happy little rainbow hippo already made? I would love to by one for my best friend who has been with me through a lot and she loves hippos.

  3. I love to hear a fellow crafts woman professing Her faith as well as her craft!!! I love my Lord Jesus Christ & try to serve Him each day in some way! I wish you the very best in your craft bc I’ve been knitting & crocheting 45+ years & never done amigurumi but I love the ministry you’re doing with your bears. I can imagine how a parent would feel recieveing a bear for their child that didn’t live when born !!! It’s a true gift
    Of LOVE given to them… You’re AWESOME Jennifer…

    1. Oh….. Pat, your comment just made me burst into tears..! Thank you so much for your kind words and for taking the time to leave me some love. I find it can be all too easy to lose track of what I’m doing and why, so I am SUPER grateful for support from like-minded Christian crafters like you. Being an expectant mum myself, I know how devastating it would be to suddenly lose my little one, and so I jumped at the chance to get involved in making the bears (I think the ladies who run Last Cuddles Bears Project have the hugest hearts). Thank you again for your comment ^_^ You’re totally awesome as well, Pat!

  4. Being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Jesus Christ. Phil 1: 6

    May God bless your and you family.

    1. Thank you so, so much, Vone. I absolutely love that verse, and it was exactly what I needed to read. It’s always encouraging to meet fellow Christian crocheters online ~ and you can also knit! I really need to teach myself soon.
      I was checking out your website, and your dolls are GORGEOUS! That’s so sweet that you’ve dedicated your shop to your late father. May God also bless you in your work and home-life.

      Much love,
      Jennifer
