Typically when I teach basic Amigurumi Classes, this is the pattern I provide. It’s small, and uses very basic Amigurumi Techniques, so it is a great introduction for those who have always wanted to take their crochet skills to the next level.
What is even better about this project is that you can customize it anyway you’d like. Use different colors, embroider your eyes, add some cheeks… the possibilities are endless with this pattern! It is super bare bones so you can use some creative freedom! But, if you have any questions.. Please feel free to comment or use the Contact Form.
What you need:
Size F (3.75mm) OR G (4.0mm) Hook
Worsted Weight Yarn (I used White Red Heart Super Saver or Caron One Pound)
OPTIONAL: 8mm Safety Eyes
Magic Circle = MC
Single Crochet = SC
Increase = INC
BLO = Back Loops Only
DEC = Decrease
What you need to know:
You need to know the basics of Crochet and How to Crochet in the Round. I teach this in my in-person classes, so if you are interested in learning how to crochet- check out our class info HERE.
There is no need to worry about the size hook or yarn you use. If you do use a different yarn weight or hook though, please keep in mind that your project will come out a bit different from how it is pictured here! If you want to use thicker yarn, totally go for it! Your result will come out a bit bigger than pictured, so be sure to use bigger eyes if you are using them!
