DIY: Amigurumi Tangerine

[NOTE: If you live in Lithuania, and want me to make one like this for you just write a comment under this blog post and we'll make a deal about it. ;} ]

Hello people! This is my first post in 2012, I hope you had a nice celebration, made (or not) some New Year Resolutions to yourself and are happy to start a new year, new opportunity to try something new and improve yourself! ~~
I decided to make a new DIY tutorial since I made a cute Amigurumi tangerine today. >w< The thought about making a tangerine went from the hate my boyfriend has for tangerines. XD So I decided to troll him a bit and make one. \(o ̄∇ ̄o)/
EDIT: I gave him this tangerine yesterday and he was so surprised! He kept giggling about the fact that I made it because he hates them...hahaha. XD

Tangerine

Use a so called 'snail crochet', meaning that you shouldn't connect rounds with slip stitches.

Abbreviations:
sc - single crochet
st - stitch
ch - chain
hdc - half double crochet
dc - double crochet
sc2tog - single crochet 2 stitches together

Make a magic ring and crochet 6 scs.
Round 1: Make 2scs in each st. [12sts]
Round 2: Make 2scs in every second st. [18sts]
Round 3: Make 2scs in every third st. [24sts]
Round 4: Work with sc in each st. [24sts]
Round 5: Make 2scs in every fourth st. [30sts]
Round 6: Work with sc in each st. [30sts]
Round 7: Make 2scs in every fifth st. [36sts]
Round 8: Work with sc in each st. [36sts]
Round 9: Make 2scs in every sixth st. [42sts]
Round 10: Work with sc in each st. [42sts]
Round 11: Make 2scs in every sixth (again) st. [49sts]
Round 12-13: Work with sc in each st. [49sts]
Round 14: Sc2tog every sixth st. [42sts]

Don't forget to stuff it. But don't stuff too hard!! Because you want to make a little fold like this:
Fasten off when there's 6sts left.
