4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Re: straight x looking stitch? on: August 15, 2011 04:18:53 PM
Actually, if you look at the second photo, it looks like they are stitched in spirals; no joining of rows.

The look is achieved by single crocheting into both loops. Very standard for amigurumi. If you crochet in back-loops-only, you'll find your amigurumi getting a sort of spiraled ridging all along the outside.

If you find your project still looking different than those in the photos, perhaps your amigurumi is inside out. PlanetJune illustrates right/wrong side of amigurumi very well here- http://www.planetjune.com/blog/which-is-the-right-side/

Working in spirals doesn't create a very noticeable curve in stitches at all. Keep in mind that joining rows would give a very straight appearance to the stitches, but will also create a noticeable seam.

It might just be easiest to cut ear-shapes from yellow felt and sew them to his head. You might do his cheek circles with red felt circles as well. Too much yarn on such a small project does indeed make the finished project seem lumpy and bulky, but felt can draw in smoother details without much effort or added weight. What you have so far is really cute, I hope you post the finished product, whichever ear method you choose =3

Maybe something like this? Just a ball made of fuzzy yarn perched atop his head? You could use a slicker brush (wire pet brush) to fluff it out even further than in the example. Acrylic and wool yarns work best for this.
You could also crochet a ball using the loop stitch (the loops will be on the inside, so you'll have to turn the ball inside-out), then trim the loops and brush them a bit.

You could probably needle felt wool roving of the appropriate color right onto the finished amigurumi.

There's a similar topic over on the toys dolls and playthings discussion board also. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=365772.0

Hope this helps

These pretty much reiterate what everyone else has suggested, but I figured I would post the tutorials all the same. Visuals can be pretty helpful.
