I've been experimenting with adding shaping to my amigurumi using tall rows - obviously double crochet is out as it's far too hole-y for amigurumi, but half-double crochet seems to work well for adding curves as it is almost as firm as single crochet.

Anyway, I came up with this little guy - his head is just an egg shape, going into a tube for the body. One side of the tube is worked in single crochet, the other side in hdc, which adds a curve.

Here's the full pattern and a brief tutorial on adding shaping to your amigurumi designs.

Very nice tutorial, I've never really tried shaping things before; this looks fun.
