Amigurumi Crochet Tips

Amigurumi Crochet Tips



Learn lots of tips and tricks in this 2-part series to successfully crochet amigurumi (a Japanese word meaning a crochet or knit animal). I'll teach you how to read amigurumi patterns, crochet and stuff the pieces, sew them together and embroider the spots, stripes, noses, etc that are included in many amigurumi animals. In this part (Part 1), I demonstrate how to read the pattern and crochet the pieces. In the next part (Part 2), I demonstrate how to stuff the pieces, sew them together and embroider the details on them. ⏱️TIMESTAMPS⏱️ 00:00 Intro 00:34 Reading the pattern 02:45 Crocheting the pieces 03:00 Tip #1 - Making slip knot (see my slip knot video listed below) 04:00 Tip #2 - Amigurumi stitch tension 05:05 Tip #3 - Rounds marker 06:33 Tip #4 - Even tension 06:50 Tip #5 - Counting stitches 11:54 Tip #6 - Decrease stitch tension 14:01 Tip #7 - Yarn tension (see my holding hook and yarn video listed below) 14:40 Changing colors 15:51 Tip #8 - Weaving in tail 19:11 Wrap up and Part 2 video info 20:11 Outtake!
