Sticky Situations ~ Marshmallow Amigurumi Pattern

Often in life you're put into a sticky situation, sometimes it's it's so sticky you're fully stuck, and other times you're still able to wiggle free! 
On one occasion when I was sort of fully stuck was the FIRST time I had ever roasted a marshmallow! Of course as a ten year old I felt I knew absolutely everything about anything, so when it came to roasting this marshmallow I thought I was a going to roast it like a pro! Everyone at the camp fire was being so nice, and trying to give me tips, but NO I wanted to roast this marshmallow all by myself! 
After twirling the fresh marshmallow in the fire for about 3-4 minutes, I decided to take it out! I let it cool off, and even though it looked kinda black and crispy I was determined to prove everyone wrong, so I put the whole thing in my mouth!... Boy was THAT the biggest mistake I ever made! It tasted like burnt rubber, YUCK! But being the stubborn child I was I kept slowly gnawing away at it, trying not to let anyone realise just what an idiot I had been!
In the end I gave up, admitted I needed help, and then with the help of my friends and family I roasted half a dozen perfect marshmallows!
They had come and helped to pull me out of my sticky situation!

Anyway enough about me and my silliness, here is a crochet pattern for a cute little marshmallow!


Things You'll Need:
8ply Yarn
4.50 Crochet Hook
Scissors
Beads or Buttons for Eyes
Needle
Thread

Round 1~ Start by making a Slip Knot, remember to not make it too tight. Then Chain 2. Crochet 6 Single Crochets into the slip knot you just made. Join with a Slip Stitch to the top of your previous chain 2. 
Round 2~
Chain one, then crochet 2 single crochets into every stitch all the way around. Join with a slip stitch into your previous chain 1.
Round 3~ Chain one. *Crochet 2 single crochets into the next stitch, then crochet only one single crochet into the following stitch. Repeat from the * all around. Join with a slip stitch into your previous chain 1.
Round 4~ Chain one. Crochet single crochets all around the marshmallow but do the singles crochets into ONLY the back loop.  Join with a slip stitch into your previous chain 1.
Round 5-9~ Chain one. Single crochet into every stitch all the way around the marshmallow. Join with a slip stitch into your previous chain 1. At this point, you will want to attach the eyes and sew on mouth. Or you can glue on eyes and a mouth later on. Stuff the marshmallow until it's almost full.
