Crocheting amigurumi is super fun and the end result is always so cute! This round up of Free Amigurumi Crochet Patterns consists of different types of amigurumi from animals to food.
What Does Amigurumi Mean?
Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small, stuffed yarn creatures. It basically means ”A crochet or knitted stuffed toy.”
Is Amigurumi Hard to Crochet?
Crocheting amigurumi is definitely an art and a skill that takes practice to learn. The biggest issue can come when you are trying to sew on all the separate pieces.
I highly recommend making all the amigurumi pieces first and getting some straight pins and lining up all the individual pieces and pinning them to the body before you actually sew them on.
This way if you want to slightly move something over you will be able to. And, you see what everything looks like before you attach it.
Other than that, Amigurumi typically consists of basic stitches like single crochet. Really, amigurumi is made up of mostly single crochet stitches and decreasing in single crochet.
So, if you know how to single crochet, single crochet 2 stitches together and make a magic ring / circle, you are all set!
Amigurumi is a skill like anything else, the more you do it and practice, the better you will be at it.
