Technique instructions

To make amigurumi toys, you work in a spiral, this means that the row doesn’t end in a slip
stitch, it just goes on in the next row.
So it is important to count your stitches or to mark the end or beginning of a row with a thread
or a stitch marker.
The stitches have to be close together or the stuffing will come through. If the holes between
the stitches are too big you can use a smaller hook or thicker yarn. However, if you use
thicker yarn, you’ll need more of it.
The thicker the yarn, the bigger the toy will be and the thinner the yarn, the smaller the toy
will be.

Stuffing
Fiberfill is perfect for stuffing, but it tends to shrink after a while. So put a lot of stuffing in the
toy. To stuff smaller parts you can use the back of a pencil or the back of a crochet hook or
anything else you have lying around.

Abbreviation of crochet stitches


American crochet terms
Chain: ch
Single crochet: sc
Slip stitch: sl st
Half double crochet: hdc

Treble crochet: tr
Double treble crochet: dtr

Increasing
Crocheting several stitches in one stitch. E.g.: 3sc in 1

Decreasing
Crocheting several stitches together. E.g.: 2sc tog

The pattern
Bits that are between brackets have to be repeated. E.g.: (2sc, 2sc in 1) x 6, repeat the bit
between brackets 6 times.
The number between brackets at the end of the row gives the total of stitches in that row.

Tips
I find it easier to sew the arms, legs, tails onto the body before I stuff it, this way I can fasten
the ends at the inside of the body.
Leave a long piece of yarn at the end of, for example, an arm to sew the arm to the body.
