Hello everyone!

I am trying to make a Doctor Who amigurumi and I am having a problem with making the body and the arms. When I make the body, instead of it being almost tube like, it comes out egg shaped and the arms end up looking like a funnel instead of a tube. Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong? I have started over on this project three times and I still end up with the same results.     Huh


Thank you for your help!!!!

Hi,

It sounds like you're picking up extra stitches somewhere.  Are you counting the stitches as you go?  Maybe that would help.

Thank you! I am going to start over and this time I will pay closer attention to my stitch count. That might be the problem.

When you start another round you should use a place marker, you can buy them or make pretty ones but a piece of yarn in a different color works too, make sure you are only putting one stitch in each stitch and if you have a pattern they usually tell you how many stitches you should have at the end of a row so make sure you have that many... my 2 cents

I use a small gold safety pin as stitch marker.

Best Wishes

what i do is to attach a tiny piece of any bright yarn color, different form the one im using as base of my dollie.

i dont do the slip stitch and the chain at the beginning of each row so what i do is to use a yarn needle and attach the bright yarn pointing the beginning of the row and that really helps.

even when i've been making crochet and knitting for many years amigurumis are new to me so im learning too

i had the same problem as you instead of going through the second stitch from the hook i was putting the hook through the same stitch where the hook came from, so u need to pay attention where the last stitch is attached Smiley
