These cute little peas were a gift for my youngest niece. They are from a pattern in Ana Paula Rimoli's book, Amigurumi Two! The author also has a previous book and a forthcoming book, as well as an Etsy store with some great patterns for sale.
The peas themselves are quick and easy. The pod was also easy, but not quick. It took a couple of days. Still less of a commitment than a sweater, but more time than I'd expect to spend on amigurumi. If I were to make this again, I would think about making the pod out of polar fleece. It might not be quite as cute, but could be sewn up in fifteen minutes.
