Have you tried any other things to make other then amigurumi, that is how I built my crochet skills up, most ami's are just sc with increases and decreases, but shawls, hats, purses, etc has more advanced techniques you could figure out to incorporate into your ami's

This looks knitted possibly "garter" or "seed" stitch and with bigger needles...since there is such a big gap in the parallel type bars....

when making amigurumi, i always use a smaller hook than recommended. for red heart or most standard weight acrylic or cotton i use a 3.50 mm hook. it keeps the stitches tight, but not too tight. if the stitches aren't tight enough, the stitches will stretch and expose the polyfill/stuffing material, which i find unsightly.

good luck with your first project Smiley

this is very true....but the yarns you mentioned will work fine...i ALWAYS use an acrylic yarn from ami's unless I need a different type to effects like fur, or feathers.

good luck!
