Apparently that’s what they are. I had to Google Kawaii and Amigurumi to find out what they mean after seeing this very cute pattern on Ravelry.
The pattern is available free from this website, and I already had a bit of Alpaca left over from a ruffled scarf that I made a few years ago. I do love working with Alpaca. It’s so very, very soft. Although maybe for a touch of realism I should be using Angora 😉
I’m hoping this will work up fairly quickly, but how long it takes depends on how much time I want to spare from my cross stitch projects. With a bit of luck, there’ll be an update on this soon.
