Amigurumi, a popular type of crochet, is a portmanteau of two Japanese terms: ami, meaning crocheted, and nuigurumi, a stuffed doll. Let me show you the simple basics of amigurumi with this fun project. Students will learn the basics of amigurumi, how to shape little creatures, create different facial expressions, and dress them up.
Crochet experience is a plus but not necessary.
• hook: size D (3.25mm) hook (the hook should be about 2 sizes smaller than the one recommended on the label of your yarn)
• light worsted weight, acrylic yarn, Uptown Worsted works beautifully but any yarn you would like to use is fine. The thicker your yarn, the bigger your amigurumi will be.
• Blunt tip sewing needle
• A locking stitch marker (a paper clip will also do)
• A few beads to add as embellishment if desired
• Pencil or pen to scribble notes on your pattern
