In the early 2000s, amigurumi made a splash on the Internet. Adorable little bears with huge heads, sleepy kitty cats with long arms, and other brightly colored, almost cartoonish creatures and patterns emerged. It was during this time that I learned to crochet. My mom taught me how to make a granny square and when I turned to the Internet for instructions on different stitches, I became enamored with amis of all sorts!
I started with the basics, practicing by making a stuffed ball. My kid LOVED it. Eventually, I taught myself to read the crochet charts in Japanese craft books and on Web sites. My first and favorite was the amineko (“neko” means cat! Cat friend — I bet you can’t stand the cute)! I made the same pattern over and over, as gifts for family and friends. It was great practice and easily personalized with different colored yarn.
Use double crochet stitches in the round to create adorable toys with human features and lots of charm.
