Mon Ami Pierrot
I don't remember many things from my childhood memories, especially when I was under 4 years old. But I remember that I like a song, which title is "Au Claire de La Lune". I only remember the melody and the first line of the lyrics: "Au claire de la lune, mon ami pierrot" It means "Oh, bright moon, my friend, Pierrot".
Maybe that was why I always wanted a Pierrot doll, ever since I saw the pattern on the "crochet book". The Crochet book was in French, I never learned to read French language, that's why I can't make the doll by myself. I asked my mother and my sister to make it for me, but they only promised without ever make me a pierrot doll.
After I graduated and started working, I have so many spare-time that I used to re-learn crochetting. I started making amigurumi, and finally I make my own Pierrot in amigumi style.
It really doesn't look like the Pierrot on the French Crochet Book. The real Pierrot is in gothic style, and the size is approximately 10 times from my Pierrot. But still he is "Mon Ami Pierrot".
