Cuddly Amigurumi Animals

Cuddly Amigurumi Animals Free Crochet Patterns

Have you started your gift-hunting yet? If not, you better start looking around for some cool presents! All of us, who have kids in the family know that they are the most excited gift receivers. This year make a responsible decision and don’t buy – make a toy by yourself!

If you haven’t tried amigurumi yet, you should definitely try it! Beginners often feel intimidated by it, but it’s not that hard to learn. What you really need is basic techniques and a little bit of patience. Bigger toys can be even easier to make than small ones, because you can work on the parts slowly and see all the stitches.

Amigurumi technique uses basic stitches, especially single crochet. Designers usually recommend cotton yarn and suitable crochet hook, but sometimes you can find projects that use novelty yarn. Try this technique today and start practicing, so you can make amazing soft toys for your friends and family.
