Title: A square Amigurumi?
Post by: Aida on August 10, 2009 10:41:55 AM
Okay, So I haven't exhausted searching yet, but I was wondering if it's possible to make a square, more flat type of Amigurumi. I found the Monokuro boo, but instead of a cube, I want something more flat, but still a little puffed out. Something like this

but in a cat. If there's something close, could you please point me towards it? I haven't been crocheting very long, and was thinking of making the pattern, but probably going about in the wrong method of it.

umm... help? ><

I would say chain x amount of stitches to reach the width you want, then crochet all around the chain in a circle. Keep going until you reach your desired height, then crochet it closed by flattening the circle and crocheting the front and back together.

Does that make any sense?

I would suggest 3 things


1. Crochet 2 squares and sew together

2. Crochet a square in the same way as monokuro (inc of 3 on each of the 4 corners) do this until it is as large as you want it then do 1 or 2 rows of working even then immediately start decreasing in the same way you increased

3. Um, I forgot.
