To the untrained eye, knitting can look a bit like witchcraft. Master seamstresses seem to magically create all kinds of textile objects with quick and agile hand movements. A Japanese artisan who works under the name Atelier Euph creates particularly impressive knitted and crocheted sculptural objects. She recently paid homage to bonsai by crocheting an amigurumi version of the beloved miniature tree.
Real bonsai require a lot of care, but this textile version is a pretty replica that doesn’t need sun or water. The artist has recreated the prized dwarf tree in wool, with winding branches and tiny, plump foliage. The adorable design even features a round crochet pot on the bottom, just like its real life counterpart. The talented textile artist has created two versions of her crochet bonsai; one in green hues and one in warm autumnal hues.
Check out Atelier Euph’s crochet bonsai trees below, along with other of his amigurumi designs.

When she’s not making tiny textile trees, she knits and crochets all kinds of cute amigurumi items.
