Mini Ebi Tempura Amigurumi Pattern by Anniegurumi

Hi everyone! Ebi Tempura is a Japanese dish: ebi means shrimp and tempura is deep frying with a batter that makes this dish very light, crispy and delicious!
I wanted to make a mini amigurumi that my son can keep in his pocket. He originally thought it looked like a bunny! When I told him that it is an ebi tempura, he laughed and said he loves it! 🙂
I hope you like to make it! It’s a very simple but satisfying pattern. It does not take a lot of yarn and about an hour and a half to make. It’s fun to make them for friends too!
