How To Crochet Amigurumi Toy - Part 1



How to Crochet an Amigurumi Toy

Five Methods:

Amigurumi (lit. Knitted stuffed toy) is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures.


Here are instructions kindly shared by Amy Lim, an amazing textile artist whose other creations will astound and delight you.


But first, here are her instructions (shared with permission) for making "Bobby Blue", an Amigurumi Toy!


Things to note:

  • This item is crocheted in the round. Do not join rounds. Use a scrap of different colored yarn to mark the rounds.
  • Work in loose ends as you crochet along or thread the end of yarn through a needle and weave it into the other stitches.
  • Amigurumi is characterized by its tight crochet that can hold beads and stuffing materials easily. This is achieved several ways, but the most common is to use a smaller crochet hook and pull the yarn taut with each "stitch".
  • Abbreviations used are:
    • Ch – chain
    • Sc – single crochet
    • Rnd – round
    • Inc – increase
    • Dec – decrease
    • Sl st – slip stitch

  • Using a smaller crochet hook will create a tighter crochet.
  • Pulling the yarn taut as you crochet will also help create a tighter crochet, thus keeping the stuffing in place.
