This way, you can practice the technique and familiarize yourself with the skills required for more advanced projects. Safety Eyes: Most of the crocheted animal toys you will find to make use safety eyes. These are usually plastic snap together pieces that form an eye in amigurumi. If you prefer not to use safety eyes, you can surface crochet eyes onto almost any animal instead with yarn or embroidery thread. If you put too much stuffing in your Amigurumi, the yarn will be stretched, and you may see the filling through the holes. Similarly, too little stuffing will deform your Amigurumi and make it look deflated. The key to stuffing your Amigurumi is only to grab a little bit at a time. You’ll want to avoid big chunks, or your Amigurumi may appear lumpy. There are two ways to do this. You can achieve a neat and clean finish that doesn’t leave bumps on the surface with the proper technique.

Gotta crochet 'em all!

If you're wondering how to make small crochet animals (or "smol" if that's you're preference) these animals are way too adorable to pass up! Unfortunately none of these are suami crochet free patterns, meaning they would be nearly small enough to fit on your fingertip! Generally speaking, the mini amigurumi patterns in this collection are all 5 inches tall or shorter. Many of them range from 2-5 inches in size. Magic Loop:The magic loopis a crochet technique that creates a closed, tight bottom of a circle. It can be used for hats, place mats, circles and these cute animals too! Learn more about the Magic loop (or circle) to use this method. Additionally, you’ll need to prepare a tapestry or darning needle to sew/weave in the yarn to complete your Amigurumi project. Lastly, you will need a pair of scissors to cut the yarn. Basic Crochet Stitches And Crochet Terms For Amigurumi

Amigurumi is the Japanese art of crocheting or knitting yarn creatures. It comes from two Japanese words: “ami”, meaning “crocheted or knitted”, and “nuigurumi”, which means “stuffed doll”. cotton yarns are tightly spun, less fuzzy, and create clearer stitches. They make durable Amigurumi pieces and are an excellent yarn option if you’re making crochet baby toys.

Depending on the Amigurumi pattern, you may use light yarn weight or bulkier yarn weight. However, the best yarn weight for crochet beginners is light worsted (DK / 8 ply) to worsted yarn weight. These medium-weight yarns allow you to see the stitches clearly, and keep your stitches tight while ensuring the stuffing doesn’t poke out between the loose stitches. It’s a great yarn weight for beginners to practice their skills. Yarn Needle: You will need this to attach legs, tails etc. as well as weaving in ends. I love using bent tip tapestry needles for amigurumi, but straight needles can be used for eyebrows and lines too. There are a few stitches and techniques that you’ll find in nearly every amigurumi pattern. Here are the most popular ones that you will see. Single crochet

A good pattern will tell you which round to insert your eye and how many stitches apart you need to keep between the eyes. This step is usually done before filling your crochet animals’ heads with stuffing.Crochet Hook: Most animal patterns will use a smaller sized crochet hook than the yarn they are using calls for. This is because it will create a tighter single crochet stitch in the pattern, which in turn makes a cleaner looking end product.
